I do NOT come from a Subaru background.

In fact, I had a Saab before my RS.



I know what you're thinking. Seriously?
Yes. Seriously.

It was an automatic 2004 Saab 9-3ss base model with 181k.
The body roll was insane, everything on it broke, the bills costed $1500+, and after two years of owning the stupid thing, I finally sold it.

What made me interested in RS' you ask?
Well... everything.
I started really getting interested in them fairly recently.
January 2014, to be specific.

And the more research I did on them, the more I realized how AMAZING they are.
They are lightweight.
They are getting rare.
They have insane suspension potential.
And I happen to love the rally history/legacy they have.

Basically, I wanted one. REAL bad.
It took awhile to find an RS that not only was in my budget (5k and under).
But ALSO was the perfect RS for me.
Long story short, it took awhile.

Numerous WTB posts were posted, and crappy RS' passed up before we found THE ONE.
Not that we knew right away. But we had a good feeling.
It was the first RS we decided to actually go look at.
It was a woman-owned and babied BRP RS.

Coupe + 5spd + under 200k + leather interior + clean title

It does NOT get much better than that.
We get a message from the lady to come see the car later that evening, and BOOM! We jumped up and headed to Portland.
An hour and some change later, we arrive.
Now.. Love at first sight DOES in fact exist.
We pull up to the house and I already knew that I wanted to take it home.
A pleasant test drive + chat with the nice owners + a successful transaction and I'm driving my DREAM car home.

Holy crap. I know.



^ Before driving it home!

No kidding! The RS tax is real. Finding a quality car for a decent price is basically impossible lol. I sure found a great deal on mine though. Super stoked!

Well for now I'm just doing little things. Today I painted the fogs yellow, and tomorrow I'll dip my grille and clean the bay out. Long term I plan to throw coils on it, play with my suspension and research my dream setup, get a lower lip, etc. If I keep this car for a few years, I'd love to STi swap it. But that'll be in awhile. Luckily I have time!
