Hi All,

Long story short... I was keen for quite a few upgrades in the first year or so, but nothing too 'full-on' in performance. I was considering new wheels and tyres, rear sway bar as a minimum (coming from a '97 WRX, the FXT was taking a bit of getting used to in it's stock form!). Followed by moderate Factory ECU Reflashing and Exhaust System. I wasn't looking too far past that, but you know how it goes - The rest is history!

^^^ :lol: Bitten hard by the mod bug, all the above and more was done in approx 2 months and then it just gets ridiculous... :o ^^^

Was only 1 of 4 sold here in Oz I'm told... I think there's 2 in Sydney, 1 in Vic (or other way round?) and now 1 in SA :) Was sold and first registered as it is, so that's it's original colour. That's all I know for now. Might enquire a bit more with the original dealer as to how and why it was only 1 of 4. PCXT mentioned something on this page - maybe that's it? viewtopic.php?f=11&t=21607&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&start=20

No gold rims on this one... did that on the last car, a '97 WRX Wagon and want something a bit less flashy on this one, being grown up and all! Am thinking something along the lines of some 18" STI like rims in silver/gunmetal. The ROTA Gravels look good and not too expensive...
