Sry to hear bout ur slide and the rims. I slid a bit the other day but was lucky no one/thing was around. Summer tires really are a bad idea on the snow, i'm saving funds for a winter set next year.
I'm ready for another meet sometime. I missed out on the last one and haven't gotten to see many other subies other than in passing the opposite way on the roads.
Maybe after the 1st of the year would be best since holidays can be a bit of a busy time for some?
Who wants to have some FUN!

I have Yokohama IceGuard IG20 winter tires and I have been very pleased with them, they're what Discount Tires had. I had them mounted on my stock rims and bought new nice rims for my summer performance tires.
The improved traction is definitely night and day and the car is amazing with them. I'm on my 2nd season and they're not wearing out at all, just don't go racing around in them.

The second set of rims is for a couple reasons... one is ease of changing.. instead of mounting and balancing... another is because winter is hell on all things. The Magnesium Chloride can kill a nice wheel's finish, and things like that happened to wrinklechops can happen.
New WRX owner here in Boulder. Had an Audi A4 for the previous 9 years and just switched to a spark silver 2010 WRX hatch. Love it so far!
Merry Christmas to all the snowy Coloradoans on the forum! Hope everyone has a great day, and lets all treat our subies extra good today lol
On a different topic... I'm periodically experiencing "high" idle speeds. E.g., sometimes when I come to a stop and push the clutch in completely, the engine will hold at 2000 RPM's until I either shift into neutral and release the clutch or until several seconds go by... then it returns to normal idle. I have no mods... is this normal behavior? Should I submit this question to a different thread?
cold weather idle is usually high. There's an actual idle map in the ecu based on temperature and whether or not a/c is on
