Hey guys, I've been creeping on the forums for a while (oil/service, chassis tuning, suspension tuning threads etc)
My past cars consisted of (in order): 91 Civic EK sedan (motor blown), 01 Mitsubishi Eclipse (sold), 86 Toyota Corolla hatch (stolen), 91 Eagle Talon TSI Awd (stolen, recovered.. in ruins), 08 Altima coupe 3.5 6spd (still have, but for sale).
I just purchased her. One of the last ones available through my local dealership. 2014 Subaru WRX Limited, Hatchback.
My initial, negative impressions of the car;
1. You can tell they focused on the engine/drivetrain and chassis. The interior sucks. The heated leather seats are awesome, but everything else pales (in comparision to my 08 Nissan altima <-lol). But, that's not what I bought the car for.
2. Shifter bushing quality is very poor, very sloppy (everyone knows) - I already swapped em out for Kartboy f/r bushings (PITA to install) which I love
3. Audio quality is poor. But, thats the audio from the am/fm. Audio through the USB is a little better.
BUT, those are just superficial issues that can be fixed (aside from the interior... the 15wrx interiors are to die for, not so much the outside)
And I won't post the positives... list wouldn't end for a while. So in short... I FREAKIN LOVE IT.
Plans for the car. Full suspension work until the 5yr warranty is up - I'm budjeting for about 15000kms/year so I should be at about 75000kms, where I start doing engine work.
Glad to be here, happy for all the knowledge that's to be found here,
