What's up people's
New to the subaru platform but not tuning. Just bought a 2000 Impreza L "auto" for $1300 bout a month ago. Needed a 4door daily for the new baby. Guy I got it from said the trany was going out, AC didn't work, and the SES light was on. He wanted $2500 for the car but, I told him with the trany issue and no AC it would cost me at least a $1000 to get things in order. Obviously took it.
Needless to say on the way home with the car there was a loud grinding noise from the RR. So there was another idem on the list.

Repair list so far:
Grinding noise RR - $45 hub bearing & one busted knuckle
AC Inop "would work for 15min then cut off" - $80 condenser fan & 6 pack of Rollin Rock
SES light on - $15 knock sensor & BG fuel induction service
Small coolant leak from upper rad hose - hose clamp "free"

Future mods & Maintenance:
Timing belt kit w/water pump
Coilovers "cause the struts are blown"
16x8 Rota slipstreams

With the new baby and a heavily modified 91 240sx this car is gonna stay pretty basic for now...
