Default The GC8 2.5RS Coupe

As most of us know, I unfortunately no longer own a MINI.

But I did find a replacement

I saw this car on my college campus and had to have it so I placed a note on his windshield letting him know I was interested in the car. At first he was hesitant to sell it because he only owned it for a couple of months. After giving him a very serious offer and continuously annoying him he caved in and I picked it up this morning. I said I'd never own a Subaru, but if I were it'd have to be a 2.5rs coupe in white so here it is:

2000 Subaru GC8 Impreza 2.5RS Coupe in Aspen white.
99,xxx Miles
Stock except for coil pack, wires, and spark plugs.

simply a great choice for a replacement. I have loved those since the first time i played grand tourismo 1.

I cant wait to see what you do with it. This is one car i have always dreamed of owning.

I probably will go with a Borla even though I work at Perrin because i'd rather not chop up one of our headers haha.

I should have an exhaust on it soon with a rack and snow tires.


Thank you everyone. I'm very happy with the car and glad I waited awhile until I found exactly what I wanted.


Time to save for a swap

Looks awesome!

Equal length! I hate the unequal length sound. Subaru fanbois love it. It sounds like a bad header design to everyone else.

BOOOOOO! That is what makes it sound so cool, because it's actually different than every other 4 banger with a fart can on it!

Like it - white is nice too as so many are the Sube blue.

Will be fun to see it build up.

It only sounds like that because of cost cutting and space issues lol.

Might not make a difference on a WRX, but will be significant on an RS.
