I've been dying to be an owner for a long time but as of a couple Fridays ago I finally am. First subbie and first turbocharged car. Picked it up in NE Ohio, originally a PA 2 owner car. 2005 OBP 5MT Limited.
 
Ticked over 52k on the way home to Dayton from picking it up. Cosmetically its a 10 footer, but overall in good shape. Had a Subaru dealership do a multi point inspection, but obviously that was mostly just visual. 
 
First thing I did was polish the headlights a bit (will be redone at some later date to a better finish) and remove the turbo banjo bolt filter.

Took it to Turn In Concepts last friday for them to look it over. Overall it has a lot more wear than either they or I expected for the mileage, but no horrible issues. I've got a new radiator on order and I'll need to do or have at least one valve cover gasket down soonish too.

If you find yourself justifying your decisions to "haters", you probably make stupid decisions.

Here's hoping light daily duty for the foreseeable future keeps me from emptying my wallet too fast...

I'll be doing all cosmetic and creature comfort mods for now. No power adders for a while

The VF40 is pretty much a ticking time bomb. Might as well go for a GTX30r before it's too late
