    im thinking 18" rota subs in gold with prodrive springs...also definatley going to get a kartboy shifter, bushings, knob....i really dislike the stock feel of the shifter.
    Welcome to the club!

    So much for staying stock ... it's OK, many here have the same affliction.

    As for mods, I'm sure you'll discover the other forums where those items are discussed, but a quick word of advice. Depending on your intentions for the car (show or go), carefully consider the size of your wheels. The AWD powertrain is already quite heavy, and without SERIOUS mods to the suspension, drivetrain (re: tranny) and engine, you'll hinder the performance with 18" rims unless you spend upwards of 3 to 5K on 3 piece lightweight units. IMO, the WRX platform looks mean with a good set of springs or adjustables with 17" on them...and I think your choice of rims as far as looks go is excellent. Got a friend with them on his WRX and I still think they are one of the better looking rims for the WRX. Good luck!!
    i can go 17" i suppose. its not that big of a deal...i want just rims and a drop, no more money will be spent on looks...i wont make the same mistake i did with my p5.

    where you from in pa, i am originally from there.
