Weren't head gaskets less of a problem on the turbo engines? Also h6s, but that goes way back unless you want a Tribeca.

If that's okay w you then def it's worth it.
I just did a basic search on local CL, and hatches (even just WRX, not STI) easily average $25k. That's too crazy. At that point may as well get a newer WRX sedan.

Why can't we have Levorgs??

Would definitely need to do some research on that, can't say I know enough.

Don't bother with WRX. You'll have to swap engine AND trans. WRX 5sp tran is glass trans. STI 6sp is a bit more bullet proof

Should probably start a thread asking for turbo kit input...
They will legit kill you for this in PR. That's like the best the little SUVs are like a cult thing on the island. One of those and a Panama hat is classier than a tuxedo and luxury car down there.

iOs 14.5 suppose to allow you to unlock with iwatch, if you're wearing a mask. It doesn't not work often. It was working then all the suddenly doesn't work. It's on & off, every damn day.

Yeah occasionally it "breaks", they released iOS 14.6 today and that supposedly fixes that problem.

Otherwise it's worked super well for me.

Aw man, I was kind of looking forward to indulging my automotive masochism by buying a beater Subaru Outback with not everything working, but I called up State Farm and they want an extra 50 a month to insure it...

I was kind of hoping that the Aston Martin would get a substantial discount if I had a second car, but I guess not. I think I'll just rent a car for short stints when I need it in Reno, it'll cost less than trying to own a beater year round.

One less old car to waste time modifying lol.

I would love more than anything to throw the keys and say have fun, but there is a big problem.

One is, I've seen you in my car (tcoat has the evidence). I don't think I'm the first person to ever tell you this, but you don't fit. You are a giant person. In my car you were sitting on the seat bolsters, knees in the steering wheel, and you could press all three pedals with one foot. You don't fit.

I already replaced the stock radiator.
