Hello from Boston

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, last year my 07 Subaru STi had some mechanical issues and I decided to sell it and save on top of that for one of my dream cars the BNR32. I have been driving it for two weeks and am so glad that it has exceeded my expectations. The only thing that was missing compared to when I had my subaru was the community. After asking around I was told that this was the place for me. I am looking forward to being part of this community and learning from those that have more experience with the R32. 

Cheers.

Here is one from the seller's original post. The pictures I have taken are terrible.

Hi there! The roads here are always in need of repair and with the suspension being stiff and lowered a bit makes me feel bad for the car sometimes. In addition to the roads we have some of the worst drivers so keeping an eye out for people reading a book while driving behind you has me on edge lol. 

Otherwise its great, I love the way this car handles I really didn't expect it to be so tight and grounded around turns. I wish it was stock so I could see how it drove in 1989 before it was updated a bit.

Do you know of anyone (or a business) that imports parts from Japan? You could look at getting stock suspension from Japan, although I suspect they won't be as cheap these days.

Or grab some KYB/Koni/Bilstein dampers and Nismo spec springs.

The seller actually has the nismo suspension and is willing to sell it, but I like how it drives as is, its just that sometimes I don't see how bad a bump is or I miss judge it and when I go over it...it feels like the car is going to explode. And in that moment I apologize to the car.

The things that need attention are actually not that bad. Like the driverside window is loose and the squeegy liner at the base of the window has broken clips so when the window comes up it pushes it off. The glove box is loose and pops open over hard bumps, the vents need to be replaced, but mechanically the guy who owned this car took real good care of it. I am hoping I can do as good of a job.

clarifying the suspension is for sale not on the car
