Moved out to van about a month ago. Jeep wasn't cutting it for the small narrow streets and unconventional parking lots, plus the fuel pump gave out. Sold the jeep to my buddy Logan and picked up a 2009 Subaru Forester 2.5 XT.

I haven't brought my 335i or my FD over here yet due to no place to park them. In the summer I'll clean up the garage we have here and bring them both up.

I've had it about a week and am pretty happy with it. The XT has essentially the same engine as the WRX. The 08 WRX and the newer 2.5GT Impreza make the same 224HP. Mine has all the features that were available for that year plus a backup camera and remote car starter.  There are a bunch of things I can do to this thing such as swap 08+ springs and struts to lower the car 3 inches, or grab an accessport and downpipe and run a 08+ WRX sedan exhaust to have a stage 2 foz. We will see I guess!

Got something special on the way, sniped a great EBay auction.

AMD R9 295x2 w/ an EK - Nickel waterblock. Going to run this tri-fire w/ my current XFX 290x.

Here is my current OC, idle temps are around 28 degrees w/ an ambient of 24 degrees. 50ish degrees under full load.

New Build

Upgraded from a old 2500k build that I first built 4 years ago. Thought I'd try something new with watercooling. Still deciding on a Fury-X or a 980Ti or just get another 290X hence the long tube going across the GPU. I was nervous starting the project but with /r/pcmasterrace and lots of reasearching I got it up and running. Runs super quiet under full load besides the GPU ramping up. I am super satisfied so far with this build!

Snow Day

Snowed about 31cm in our town today....Schools shut down, business closed...
People need to stop being pussies and get with it.

Changed the oil and air filter in the Jeep today. 
Had zero issues navigating the stopped traffic and the frantic people stuck with their summer tires on. Grabbed a couple recovery straps just so if someone desperately needs help.
