Default Fidel's 05 LGT 5EAT

I bought her in Aug. 2011.

114800-115000 miles when I bought her. I can't remember the exact number. Currently at 122045

Paid $6500. It came out to $6950 after Tax, Title and Plates.

Replaced a bad rear wheel bearing two months after buying. One reason for the
low price.
Had to replace my Radiator with a Mishimoto Aluminum Radiator in March 2012 because I broke my OEM one while replacing the top and bottom hoses.

It's stock right now, planning to stay stock and focus on improving handling.
Going with H-Tech Springs and KYB GR2 Struts when I lower her. Hopefully buying them with my Tax Return next year.
For wheels I'm getting some 17 inch Drag Dr-9 rims.
Also going to upgrade Rotors. Stop tech Slotted Rotors
Going to budget for AVO LCA Bushings and Swaybars.
My last upgrade will hopefully be the JDM Double Din Installation.

Miscellaneous: I've PlastDiped the Grill and relocated the Front License plate. Tucked my exhaust tips about a week ago. Sorry about the I badge. Bought it before researching about it and realizing its meant for Impreza's.

Here's some pics.







These two were taken the day I bought her

Yea, that looks great, nice job.


As for Kagen, he just pushed one of the mods too far with a few of his posts.

Yeah, sorry if anyone's offended. Pretty controversial stuff.
