I just picked up a used 2002 WRX wagon (silver) from a dealer last week. So, I'm not sure what all has been altered from stock, but I know the car has been taken very good care of, and only has 48k miles on it. It also has a nice aftermarket 'woofer installed in the trunk with a nice stereo and amp under the passenger seat. Aside from normal usage, I'll mainly be using my baby for driving up snowy roads for some boarding, or shuttling on gravel/dirt roads for mountain biking. Keeping this in mind, I'll probably tune things to more of a rally setup. I have added two Thule bike racks and a wind fairing, but that's all.
Which means that, as far as I can tell, I have stock:
-interior (aside from sub, stereo, and amp)
-and everything under the hood is probably stock too
Right now, I'm just a student without a job, so I don't have much dough to throw at upgrades, but I would love some suggestions on relatively cheap upgrades. And if you have any hints or tricks-of-the-trade for general maintenance and upkeep, I would love to hear anything you guys have to say. Basically, I'm new to all of this, and I'm just beginning to eagerly absorb as much knowledge as I can.
