Was there any unusual circumstances around how you acquired your car?
Nothing unusual. But it was the closest, most expensive low mileage STI in my area.

Was there more work on your car than you anticipated? Did you find a bucket of wiring worms, find some secret hidden problems…..
Fingers crossed no issues or gremlins.

Are there any unique mods on your car? Hyper-rare parts, custom made parts…
Being a limited edition model it did come with a numerical plate to identify it as 267/500. The gear knob is engraved with WR1 and came with a numbered tax disc holder.

Would you consider your car done in its current form? Or do you have a list of “to dos” still left?
At this moment I would consider the overall build done, though the paint could do with a refresh at some point.

The exhaust, love the Subie rumble.
