After reading the forums for a while and getting my xB last week I finally felt like posting something :p

I went from this...


(the only decent pic I could find of her, most of the stuff was stripped off her by then though)

to this...


Shadow Mica, stock but not for long, you all know how that modding bug works ;)

Very cool color. Still haven't seen one here in Dallas yet (or a RSP or an RS 3.0).

I'll be jealous when I do! Welcome.

Actually it's a TS wagon but it had, sti springs/struts, solid endlinks, 20mm rsb, short shifter/bushings, brullen catback, borla header, intake, rota attacks, 225/45 17 S03's, and a bunch of other stuff I keep forgetting. I just kept accumulating parts since I had a 2.5rs and my dad had a wrx.


My old 2.5RS that everyone thought was a wrx too. I noticed the place I got my wheels from still uses my car in their logo on their website lol

I think it's actually more fun to drive than my Subarus were. It doesn't handle as well, but it's way more fun (I know it makes no sense, but it's hard to explain). I love my old Suby but it being a stick and me having to drive 60mi a day in traffic wasn't working out too good. Sucks rally-x, auto-x, and track days are gone with the xB (time to get an old civic to turn into a track car I guess). All I have to do now is get some springs and wheels to get rid of that stock 4x4 look.

you will be shocked on how well the xb will handle after doing springs and rims it wont be fast or anything but it will handle very very well trust me..

As soon as it gets warm and It seems it's not going to snow anymore I'm going to hit it with springs, a rsb, tires, and wheels. If they work as good as they did on my subaru, I'm going to be one happy person.

I like the handling until it's pushed hard (plows like a dumptruck, but I guess it should be expect on a fwd car), then I really miss my old car, guess I'll just start throwing suspension parts at it like everything else I've owned.

I should have the springs on next week, then the rsb in 2 weeks, and in a month or so some sticky tires on some lightweight wheels. The strut bar for the front looks worthless and the rear bar looks just as bad so I won't be getting those.
