    New Buyer waiting for his WRX

    Hello all,


    I recently ordered a 2012 WRX 5 dr. I drove an STI also, but because I'm using my new car as a DD and not taking it to the track I went with the WRX. Plus I had to be honest with myself and admit that at my driving skill level I wouldn't get the most out the performance the STI offers. I drove an EVO X too but the seats were the most uncomfortable things I've ever sat in. Pinched my legs together so tight it made my nuts hurt (and I'm a small guy). Couldn't see driving that around every day. I can't wait for my WRX it to arrive and I know I'll have a lot of fun with it it. I figure I'll drive it around for a year to really get the feel for it before mod anything. And even then probably a short throw shifter rather than any power mods. Until my WRX arrives I'm having quite a bit of fun browsing around your forums. Lots of good advice on what to do and not to do. Cheers and see around.

    Ha Ha, Yeah maybe. I guess I wouldn't be digging around in these forums if I wasn't thinking about mods. I guess I should say I'm going to TRY and RESIST the urge to mod for a while. lol

    Lots of easy little things to tinker with in that threads. Should keep me busy and away from anything major for a while. Though I imagine those little projects are like a started drug and will make me want to do more. Thanks Lol : P

    I got the Premium edition. No real fancy extras. Just all weather floor mats, cargo tray, body side molding and rear bumber cover.
