About a week ago I picked up my brand new 13 CBS Wrx Hatchback premium. I ordered the car about a month a half ago and it was well worth the wait. Options from the factory included: Upgraded shock sensor security system, Wheel locks, Sti short shifter and auto dimming rearview mirror. I am loving have the new car. My previous car I traded in on it was a 2004 Infiniti G35 coupe. A big change from my previous car to the new one but Im getting used to it. Living up in PA we do get snow which is the main reason I made the switch to the Wrx for the awd feature. This isnt going to be a fast paced build thread like alot of other on here because I want to be able to use my warranty if something goes wrong but I still will be upgrading the car and doing motor work. So far I have only done a few small things such as throw on a Cobb delrin red collar shift knob. And today I just got the OEM roof rack in that I was able to throw on fairly quickly. I am waiting on my Cobb AP to get in hopefully this week or next and once I hit 1,000 miles I will be flashing to stage 1. My next purchase will most likely be the AEM cold air intake as Ive heard very good reviews on it. I really dont have an overall plan for the car yet but Ive been looking around the forums and checking out other builds to see what everyones doing. Heres a few pictures in stock form for right now. I plan to get the windows tinted something within the next week. Looking to go with 20% all around.
I will try to keep this as updated as possible while I personalize the car to my liking. The new rex got its first snow last night we only got about an inch but still. Took a quick drive and was amazed at how easily the car took the snow. Coming from a rwd car it was a world of difference. I know that I am still on stock tires and they are summer and I am fully aware and very cautious. Eventually I would like to get a winter wheel/tire combo for the winters. Thats pretty much all for now. Like I said I will keep this updated as I progress with the car. Thanks everyone!
