    New to the club!

    Im new to the club and was just gonna post some info bout my sube.
    I have a rally blue, 04 Auto WRX. Go ahead and get the jokes over with now. Hell, I'll even laugh at myself ! I opted for the matic because I cant drive , or should i say couldnt drive a stick. Since owning the car for over a year now, ive learned to drive with the helpful guidance of a friend! I plan to trade up to an STI sometime in 2007. Gotta play with this one first. I have to be careful which mods to put on the car. I want all mods to be able to transfer to the new car. Ive put on an APSTurbo back , APS cold air intake, 17" Motegi MR7's and Eibach Pro Kit Springs should arrive today or tomorrow. Im now looking towards and Up-Pipe, B.O.V., Boost Controller and some more suspension mods.
    I can be spotted spanking these itiots in hondas, no offense my first car was a honda, that think just because they put and exhaust and a spoiler on the car its a damn McLaren!
    Any information you have on mods is greatly appreciated.

    yeah, that is quite possibly the only up side of having a matic.
    I drove my friends wrx in traffic and i stalled 2 times. it was
    embarassing as hell, but i learned. even if it was the hard way.

    Just wonderding when you say you want the switch the parts over, do you plan on buying a 07 sti and swapping.....cause parts might not fit....or do you just plan on buying a sti in 07?


    As for mods, I'd opt for a TC pretty soon as they help a good bit on the dogbox.

    you brought up a good point about the mods not being able to transfer over.
    i sure hope they do, but if not i could always sell them off cheap because
    people will always want more mods and they are better if they are cheap.

    Welcome - do some reading on putting boost controllers on 04's... you might decide you really don't want that on your car. You might want to do a search on CAI as well.
