    That's all up to you about staying stock. If you've got the money I wouldn't. I have a 2010 wrx with 26k and no issues so far.
    I'm at Cobb Stage1 and it feels much better than stock. I didn't really notice a big difference at first, but I went back to stock once and that's when I noticed how much better it felt at stage 1. Just the power delivery was smoother.

    It might feel fast right now, but the more you drive it and get used to it the "slower" it will feel. When I test drove mine it felt like a rocket, especially coming from a 99 Ford Taurus the more I drive it the slower it felt, but of course it's all in my head.

    Idk, you may not feel the same but I constantly want more power lol. And my gf bought a used 2008 wrx at stage 2 with a Perrin turbo back exhaust. To me it's a whole other experience when you have that growling exhaust compared to the wimpy stock exhaust. Just feels....right

    It does suck how no matter how fast your car is, it begins to feel slow after enough time driving it.

    Very true, but I have one good thing going for me. My WRX isn't my daily driver. I have a 99 Ford Taurus I drive to work and it's slow lol. So I'm constantly transitioning back and forth so it stays "fresher" lol.
