    Hey guys,

    As some of you know, i had to sell my widetrack sti, due to the mrs losing her job and us expecting our second child.

    I had looked around for a suitable replacement, looked at sorentos, then leon cupra r, i finally spoke to my mate kevc who said his old bug was for sale, so i approached the owner and here she is.

    2001 bugeye wrx with just over 70k on the clock, been really well looked after,

    Spec list is as long as your arm lol

    D2 8pot brakes
    Lowered on new shocks
    Japspeed fmic
    Full 3" decat with raptor
    Flcocked dash
    Intake
    Mapped

    And more

    I picked the car up last sat, tbh the brakes were shocking. I hoped it was just bleeding but turned out to be the pads seized on both sides, hence a low pedal, 150 later, new pads in and good brakes,

    So i decided on a quick colour change

    Did the fmic too

    Now i was never a fan of the bumper, sorry kev so i managed to find and chop up a prodrive bumper

    Then turned my attention to the inside,

    Removed the old single din hu, in favour of a double din Bluetooth unit, i then blacked the dash pieces and added a red jdm hazard switch,*

    Had to use flash on this pic sonit looks terrible, alot better in real life

    Final thing was a service

    Another nice job :cool:

    How about buying my car off me and selling it back to me in 6 months when you're bored of it (and fixed everything) :rofl:
