Hey all,

I have been a member on here for a while now and have owned a few different falcons. For some reason the gods decided to send me a pressie the other day when my mate bought an 06 WRX. I jokingly said that I should buy Daisy (cars name, dont know why haha) off him. I say jokingly because I don't have a job and I am not on the dole. I had about $30 to my name but run my own business and had a job coming up for about a grand. He said "Yeah you should. I know your situation but I love the car to much to sell it to a stranger so ill hook you up."

When he said this I was expecting to hear "$6000 or $7000" but what he said next nearly made me throw up with excitement. "Umm she needs a few things but $2500 and she is yours, just hook me a grand and pay it off when ya can." I was stunned but lept at the chance and we arranged a day for me to pick her up. Now this is where things got very out of hand for me in a GOOD way :)

He picks me up from mine in the wrx and i begin to tell him what I want to do to Daisy when I have paid it off. The convo went something like this...

Me: Im keen to do a heavy duty clutch, induction mod, short shifter, extractors and exhaust, lower it and buy a flash tuner.

Him: Well I just put an Excedy heavy duty clutch in it, it has an induction kit, it has pace maker 4499's and a full system, a billet short shifter, eibach lowered springs in the front and I have a pair of super lows to throw in with it.

Me: ARE YOU f**k JOKING!!!???

We pull in to the driveway at his and he leads me over to the car and proceeds to say the following...

Him: Yeah i have put dynamat in the front doors and parcel shelf, installed 6 inch speaker mounts and new BA front slotted rotors and calipers with new pads. Oh and the rears are new slotted rotors with new pads.

Me:....ummm

I couldnt believe that this car had so many mods that I wanted and wouldnt be able to afford for ages. Anyway, the convo went on...

Him: I'm real sorry but I took the cd player out for the rex but I got you an alpine for it.

Me: This is ridiculous! haha

He then told me to hop in the passenger seat and said the following...

Him: I have had BA XR6 injectors put in and you should open the glove box...(so i do and nearly pass out) That's a brand new VCT Flash Tuner man and it comes with the car. Its been tuned for E85 and PULP and made 173rwk on the dyno.

I could literally have cried at this point but was trying to stay all manly and not be a wuss haha. He threw me the keys and we signed papers and I drove her home. I was stunned at how well the car went compared to my el manual that made 160rwk and had the biggest smile on my face ever! I have just been enjoying the car and couldnt be happier. Here is a list of current mods...

Current Mods:

Pacemaker 4499 extractors
BA XR6 injectors
Flash Tune
Excedy heavy duty clutch
Full 2.5 inch exhaust
Induction kit

The car has 220,000k's on the clock :)
