    If you check my other member's ride thread, I used to have an '05 RS that was slightly modded, mostly for fun driving, autoX, etc. Well, about two months ago it got totaled out by a hit skip driver while I was on my way home one night. I'm fine, walked away with cut in the corner of my left eye from where I hit my head on the window that was half down and got knocked out, hence the concussion.


    About a week later we got this car in at my dealership. It came from one of the local car auctions and apparently whoever owned it burned the clutch out on it in under 60k miles. There were some other minor things that needed attention which were taken care of by us and the clutch got replaced under a warranty my owner has with the auction. The front bumper has been patched and in what looks like a minor fender bender so it doesn't match the rest of the front end but I can live with that. There's also a slight scuff mark on the passenger mirror and headlight but those are minor details for what is basically a super nice car.

    Upon further inspection, it was realized that it had been modded with an aftermarket (ebay) catless downpipe, cobb intake, and some fart can catback exhaust.

    It sat on the lot for about a month before I got tired of searching all over the country for a 2011+ WRX Limited in Satin White Pearl and talked to our owner about purchasing it, and here we are.


    The catback was used, I took a hard wire wheel to it at first to get all the road grime/tar off it, followed up by a softer brass wire wheel, a scrub with a scotch pad and wd40 for a nice micro polish, followed by another polish with some fine steel wool to give it an almost brushed look.

    I dig it and I agree on the wheel change. No Motegis for Birdman!

    I'm also glad to hear that you're OK. :thumbsup:

    Thanks guys! Hopefully I can get it cleaned up soon (its been raining non-stop here lately) and some better pics of it. It's been a blast to drive although I haven't been flogging it too much as I'm still getting used to the extra power vs every other car I've ever owned.

    I'm still learning a few things on the car and getting used to sliding around in the leather seats.
