    2012 DGM

    Just got a new 2012 DGM WRX Limited Sedan. I've been lurking around the site for a few months trying to soak up as much knowledge as possible. It's pretty hard trying to hold back high revs during the break in period. I've never modded a car before but definitely plan on adding some of the common bolt-ons in the near future.

    I'm not a fan of the small wing on the trunk can you remove it easily or do you need to do a trunk swap?

    I don't plan on getting new wheels for a while but I like the look of the Enkei Raijins, if someone has the time id love to see them on my car with some photoshop action. Also, I don't know much about wheels so if someone knows a reason why these would be a bad choice performance wise please let me know.

    Welcome.

    You would have to do a trunk swap to go wingless or you can take it off & have a body shop plug the holes & paint it.

    I'm in the same boat currently... It definitely is hard to hold back. These cars beg to be driven fast and this break-in period is painful.

    And here is a pic with those wheels you mentioned. Definitely looks nice. On tirerack.com you can view any wheels they have available on your car - it's where I got this pic.

    Congrats and welcome!

    Finally I find a DGM WRX locally that doesn't like their trunk, but why can't you want an STI wing so we can swap trunks? I really want to get rid of my STI wing for a WRX wing!

    Sorry teflon I'm looking to go bare back for the trunk but if I end up doing a pull and plug with the wing like rage suggested ill definitely let you know.

    Thanks for the picture aznwrxlover, I've actually used that feature on tirerack before but just didn't even think about it when i was checking out these rims.

    Since your in CO hopefully you can help me with a tuning question. I actually bought the car in Massachusetts but I'll be moving out to Denver in about a month. I plan on getting a proper tune after I get some bolt on's in but it will be at least a few months before that. How important is it to tune the car for driving in the higher Denver altitude, can i get away without a tune until i get some aftermarket things together?

    You don't need to get a tune for the altitude. Your ECU can adjust for that all by itself.

    I'm a fan of Revolutions Performance here in Colorado Springs. They are an AP dealer as well and give you a discount if you get a protune when you buy it.

    There's a couple of good tuners in Denver, but I don't know them. If Kevin/Sinister chimes in I know he knows of a couple.

    Honestly man I would give Eric at torqued performance a call. You can't beat the price and his e tunes are just as good if not better than most pro tunes. Are you in Colorado I think I saw that you are. if so he can give you a dyno tune as well.
