after months of searching and debating between a wrx wagon or a FXT. i finally manned up and picked up my aspen white 2004 FXT 5spd. I figured a FXT will give me the same power ( if not more) and also give me a lot more comfort. picked it up from a fellow SF.orger, had it shipped from Arizona to the Bay Area, CA and i LOVE this beast. SO MUCH TORQUE ( ive driven only hondas till now) big plans for it !!!!!

CONGRATZ ON THE FOZZY!


White seems to be a pretty rare color ..... I have never seen an FXt in white in person.....

but, I am in Texas where there aren't many Subarus....


I would have honestly preferred to have aspen white over my Java Black Pearl..... for one, it doesn't show dirt as bad, and two, I really just like white on these cars..... my race WRX was ppg glacier white, and I loved it....


As for mods, depending on how wild you want to go, follow the formula on here for how to go faster than an STI..... if you have about $2500 or so to spend....


I haven't added up how much I have in my car, but, I don't think it is really much more than $2300 at most.... I bought everything used in good shape and cleaned it up and reused it.....

my car puts down 275whp on a mustang dyno with an auto tranny!!!!! stock STI's usually roll 205-210whp on a mustang dyno for comparison.....


This is by far the best car I have ever owned.... and I have 160,000 miles on it, with the original engine and tranny and rear diff and axles in it!!!!
