    My First Subie- 2012 WRX Hatch

    Hey guys, I'm fairly new here to clubwrx, haven't posted too much but I've been exploring a lot. I'm from Lancaster, PA and go to school at Penn State in State College, PA. I picked myself up a 2012 WRX last April. After being around my buddy's bugeye wagon, I had to get myself a Subie. I bought it as a daily driver/ business vehicle. I told myself I wont be dumping a bunch of money into it, but turns out I lied to myself haha. It's just another money pit as I also own a '94 turbo cobra. I couldnt be happier with this car. It's treated me very well and it has put my mustang on the back burner.

    So like I said, this car has just been another money pit for me, but it's not a bad thing haha.

    For my mods:

    Engine/Performance:
    CNT CBE
    CNT catless DP
    AEM CAI
    Perrin TMIC
    GFB Respons BOV
    1000cc DW injectors
    DW Fuel Pump
    Currently Pro-Tuned on 93 octane, but also run her on E85
    KartBoy Short Shifter w/ bushings

    Appearance:
    Hyper Black Rota T2R's
    Roof Wrapped in Carbon Fiber Vinyl
    Headlights Retrofitted by Lightwerkz
    20% tint all around
    Thule Cargo Basket (not currently on the car)
    Front Lip
    HT Autos side skirt extenders and rear lips
    other random stuff

    Suspension:

    Whiteline front and rear sway bars
    GTWorx Cup Kit (Bilsteins with Yellow RCE's) (installing this kit this weekend

    You may be curious about the "Ride Buzzed" stickers all over the car. I own a downhill skateboarding company called Buzzed Precision Trucks and "Ride Buzzed" is my companies slogan.

    Check out the pics and let me know what you think! The pics are starting from when I first got the car and end with the most recent pics. Thanks guy!

    P.S. I see a lot of people with "Stink-Eye Mob #XX" in their sigs. How does one go about joining?

    EDIT: I guess I should have put this in the other section for introducing myself. But I have included a bunch of pictures.

    Thanks guys! I've seen guys with "Stink-Eye Mob" in their signatures, how or where do I go to join that "mob"?

    EDIT: Just found the Stink-Eye thread after a ton of searching. I had a lot of trouble finding it.

    Thanks man! I put the carbon fiber on myself (a friend also helped). The vinyl was about $200. It took about 3-4 hours using a hair dryer. It was a pain in the ass, but turned out great!
