I make the same money now as I did up north, but the cost of living is waaaaay cheaper so now I can afford a WRX and some mods =D Although I frequent NASIOC and the 3G forums too just for a broader and then more specific base. This is where I started when I got my Subie though! WRXTuners FTW!
P.S. Please rename the post "Did everybody *Sell* their cars or something?" lol. That just tickled me :P
Only use roads to get to the dirt; Then keep it sideways! >;D
