    Relocation to Northern VA

    Hey all,

    I just took my 2011 WRX across country from CA to Northern VA. 2880 miles. Man I love my Car. First day of work I head back to my car and on both sides of my car was another WRX and an STI. It brought a grin from ear to ear to my face. I look forward to meeting all of you Subi fans here on the east coast.

    Quick question... do you feel like the humidity affects they way your rex pulls? It almost fills like it gets bogged down. Maybe i am just crazy - This hot humid weather is all new to me.

    Awesome! Lookout for the wave! P.s. go west a bit and the roads get fun!

    I don't really notice a big difference. Nothing enough to catch my attention at least.

    That's an impressive drive! I am making the same drive in January, NorCal to NoVA. How many days did you take?

    It was a good long drive. I took the drive really slow (5 days). I drove anywhere between 7 to 10 hours a day. I also stopped to visit family in Memphis a few days. I hope you enjoy the drive.

    Welcome to hell haha! The traffic around here sucks for opening it up but like jubei49 said, the nice windy roads out in the western parts of fairfax county are definitely fun to drive! I'm in Springfield so if you are in the area keep an eye out for a blue 11 WRX. Good to have another WRX in the area!

    I got mine done at LA Tint in Sterling and I love it. Don't get bothered by cops for it either which is a plus haha! I know they have a few locations in the area, shop in Manassas and there is also one in Woodbridge. Their website is latint.com and they did great work for me. I'll post some pictures when i get a chance so you can see what it looks like with the WRB.
