    Finally, I did it!!

    Hello everyone! I just joined the site yesterday, the same time that I bought my 2005 Wrx WR Blue. Its been a long time coming. So I guess that I have a few questions right off of the top. First of all, what kinds of mods can I do without voiding the factory warranty? I know that the factory warranty covers a lot of stuff so I need to make sure that before I install aftermarket equipment. Second question: what is the weight of the stock wheels and tires? Third: what is the largest wheel size that I can fit on my Rex? And lastly, this question is for the site administrators....is it possible to have a geographical map or listing of the members for ease of setting up meets, tech sessions, BBQ's, etc..? Thanks and I am super happy to be a member and a new owner of the WRX!

    Welcome Skreekin!

    I recommend searching the forums for some of your questions. There is a lot of info out there just waiting to be re-read.

    As for voiding your warranty? Hehe - good luck. It's a crap shoot any way you look at it. Get window tint and they'll probably void any window warranty issues (streaks on window, burned window motor, cracks, etc). Do a search on 'warranty' and you'll find lots of interesting discussions.

    congrats on the REX and welcome to the club. my advise to you as far as modding: mod away, if you have a warranty issue, flash ECU, revert back to stock and bring her in. They will never know

    Okay, then I guess that I will mod away. Probably start with the simple stuff and work my way to the more expensive (and more difficult to install/uninstall.) Obviously its easier to replace the stock airbox than it is to switch out the up pipe and down pipe! Oh and I just gotta say that I definately get more looks with my Rex than I ever did with my Miata or my 1990 Honda Accord. Women love it!

    Welcome to the club, if you're looking for what mods will void your factory warranty just search for void warranty or warranty in the engine performance forum. This subject has been covered a few times already.

    just remember that by law the dealership has to prove whatever mod you do caused the problem to void it.

    Congrats and welcome! Since you have questions on verious topics, I'd like to recommend visiting the forums specifically designed to discuss those topics. Typically you will find stickies at the top of each forum that will answer most of your questions.

    As for the regional question, since we have regional forums, doesn't that meet the needs that you stated?
