For sale :: my beloved WRX


So my WRX is finally for sale.  I have had this car for the past 8 years which means it has been a part of my life for a very long time.

I used this sale as an opportunity to get some last photos of her.

Some details about the car:

This car was fitted with the MRT XB Power kit in 2006 by MRT in Rhodes (adds 40KW and 30% torque).

This kit is essential 3″ piping from the turbo to the exhaust (including up-pipe), heavy duty fuel pump, ECU remap, etc. Full details can be found on the MRT website 

As parts have worn out, I have replaced them with higher quality after-market items, plus some other extras:

  • DBA slotted and drilled rotors,
  • MRT sports brake pads,
  • GFB pulley kit,
  • GFB short-shift kit,
  • Alpine head unit,
  • Pirelli P-Zero Nero tyres,
  • Satellite anti-theft tracking,
  • Tinted windows.

From the time capsule

I remember putting this clip from my old Sony compact (zomg it has video recording with sound!) on YouTube way back when YouTube was not a giant commercial television station.  Ironically, it’s got way more views than the videos I’ve created with Final Cut Pro hehe.

Sold – 29 December 2012

8 years I’ve had this car.  Since 24 December 2004 it has served me well (except for that stupid Brant alarm).  Sad day today.
