Whaddup! Stumbled across this forum and decided to join the party since I just ordered a Frost White base RS. Took a bit to find one without a ridiculous markup out here. You wouldnt even believe the numbers theyre asking haha.

Been in the Subaru game for a loooonnnggg time and still wrenching on them for a living. Currently have a swapped and flared BAR legal 98 RS that I beat the snot out of on a regular basis, mostly auto x. Figured it was about time to get into a new car and Ford is killing it right now. We have beefed up quite a few ST's that have come through the shop. Beyond excited to get behind the wheel of a RS and track it!

Heres the current POS that I daily. 420whp/450wtq on the corn. Cheers!

Hello, back at you from Northern New York! The other side of the country. I bet that car is a blast to drive. Nice choice on the next one... We are all eagerly awaiting over next rides!

Nice! Yea, I have the DORA. I'm getting mine from Texas, so it should be a fun drive back Haha.

It's kind of a long story how I got the car: My buddy knows an owner of a dealer in Texas. We give him a call and he has one allocation, but he ordered black with all the options. Exactly everything I didn't want. So he made the changes and I got the DORA after that.

It's a priority 02 and an order type 2. So I guess we will just have to wait and see

This car looks super familiar... You didn't happen to have returned a silver wrx/sti to stock to sell in the last couple of years, did you? Or possibly a roommate?

That would be my roommate. Sold his 02 wrx.
That's it then. My brother and I drove up there to swap trunk lids with him. My brother wanted to go wingless for his 05 sti. Small world =P

Welcome, the "POS" looks pretty clean. Nice to hear you were able to get a good deal on an RS!

Thanks! Yea I'm glad I got one too since I ordered a RS fairly late compared to a lot of people on here. Finding one without a crazy markup was a chore. Local dealer here wanted $20k over sticker. I laughed pretty hard at that one. Sad this is, someone will probably pay it.
