    Newbie just saying hi!

    Hey everyone,

    I made a post before about the factory boost gauge question and I really appreciate all the responses it generated. I just bought my 05 WRX today and I couldn't be any happier. Was wanting one of these cars for awhile and was just waiting for the funds to add up to be able to pay for it and that day finally came. Yeah so im very excited and I hope my image attachment worked, but oh well. Gonna wait to break it in a little (maybe 1000 miles or so) before I start modding it up. Does anyone know of any good performance shops in the MD Area? I found a couple names, but just wondering who people have worked with and could give me some feedback about their work. Oh well take it easy and you will be hearing more from me soon as I look to get involved and talk to some cool people and learn about this car.

    Thank you everyone for the welcomes and yeah I wasn't planning on doing anything except getting my windows tinted until 1000 miles. A poor college kids needs to save up for months to do mods lol, so I am just trying to lay out a plan for the mods.
