    My 2012 Wrx

    Picked it up two weeks ago after wait a little over two months of waiting. well worth the wait. My first Subaru and loving it. So far i have gotten 20% tint all around, tail light overlays, and rally armor mud flaps. plan on getting a namless cbe and downpipe, tp stage 1-2 tune and some type of intake(undecided). As far as suspension probably just lowering springs for now to eliminate wheel gap and stiffen the ride a little. let me know if you guys have any suggestions. Thanks

    Nice choice.

    If you're going to get lowering springs, you should think about doing the struts while you're there. The stock struts don't respond too well to lowering. I went with the Epic springs and Koni adjustable struts, and I couldn't be happier with it. GTWorx/Bilstein is also a nice setup.

    ...oh, and get those trucker flaps off of your beautiful new car!

    I put the mid flaps on there lol because I went up north and they put down lava rock in the snow and I didn't want it all up and down the side of my car. And they actually work really well

    I'm putting rally armor mud flaps on mine. I already have them. They've been waiting for a month and a half haha. I think they look good.

    When I first got my shiny brand new car the 40 mile drive home turned it into a not so shiny car especially behind the tires that's when mud flaps came into play and he's right nothing comes close. And like Thomas says "don't forget to use protection" ( The Ringer)
