I bought a decent condition 2001 Impreza L off an older guy a few miles from my house today. I'm hoping this will be my new daily for a while, as my RS is just beyond saving due to rust, paint, and other issues. going to get the parts swapped to the new car soon and junk the old shell in the following weeks.
Almost 5 years of this beast, and 10k views, much thanks to all readers/ car owners.
Been daily driving the Impreza L for the last 6 months now, Most of the parts were transferred over from the RS, minus a few suspensions parts and tail lights.
I plan on keeping this one relatively inexpensive, the car isn't perfect by any mean. So until I can save some serious coin, and afford a swapped GC, or newer WRX, it's going to be pretty quiet on here.
Still daily driving the Impreza L. It's fun, but the car's been a bit of a headache too lol. It's doing better than ever now, and didn't cost me much too much money overall. Here's a list of what's been done to the vehicle this year (Shout out to my mechanic friend's).
RS front brakes installed.
Switched to stock plasti-dipped six spokes again, and studded snow tires.
Got rid of my old leaking exhaust, now it has UEL single port headers, a Tsudo highflow cat, and my STI exhaust.
New Spark plugs
New knock sensor
New Valve cover gaskets
- Plans for next year -
Putting my kyb/ Tanabe suspension back on
Flushing the rear drum brakes
fixing a few lights (third brake light, and a couple bulbs)
Happy Holiday's, and I hope everyone's having fun in this snowy weather - Joe.
I was driving to work earlier today, and a woman went thru a stop sign in a Chrysler 300. Her car spun onto a patch of grass, and my front end got destroyed. Car is pretty much totaled, and currently in a tow yard. Minus some scrapes, sores, and the awful taste of 18 year old air bag, i'm good. Both parties are okay, and that's what matters.
