For nearly 2.5 years i have been on the look out for a new daily driver, so i could retire the Mare from DD duties and focus the build more on being a dedicated track car. I searched far and wide for a car i wanted, and criteria were that of: being a 4 door; being a 4 or 6 cylinder; being a car that has lots of room for trips; being something i wouldn't mind driving everywhere and the car had to get better gas mileage than the Mustang which was surprisingly 17/26. I also wanted an awd vehicle, but it wasn't a deal breaker. The 2 type of cars i settled on were the 1990-2009 Subaru Legacy GT wagon and an E46 or E39 Wagon. While the possibility of finding a 323xit or 325xit was out there, the odds of finding one in my budget and with reasonably low miles was posing rather difficult. I eventually found my wagon for sale by the original owner off craigslist for an asking price of 2k and 172k on the clock. I picked her up for 1600 and now the rest is history.
