    2005 WRX Aftermarkets?

    Hey guys i am new to the site, and also new to owning a WRX. I have wanted a WRX for about 3 years now, ever since they came out. I finally saved up and got one.
    Now i am looking to upgrade a little. what are some good things to add at first for not too too much money?

    the first mod you should do it the intake silencer delete (do a search). then you should get an uppipe and a rear sway bar or rear endlinks. any one of those individually shouldnt cost you more than 200 bucks. go nuts mang youll get bitten soon.

    If you want power get the down pipe first Helix is a good brand and fairly cheap. http://gruppe-s.com/ is one of my favorite sites, good prices and nice to deal with

You don't have to, you can get an R.S Fender Hole Cover for $3 at any Subaru Dealership in the parts department and it'll do the exact same thing for much much much less money.

    Wow those were my same exact words before I got my wrx. I loved these cars ever since the 2002 came out, as soon as I saw it I knew I would own one. And three and a half years later I do, definitely the longest I have wanted something and actually got it. Great car, you will love it...and most on here are really nice and helpful as well.

    I'm sorry, but why should that be anyone's first mod? It's safe and all, but it doesn't really accomplish anything. I mean, if you want the extra noise, sure, but I don't see any reason to actually encourage that mod unless someone specifically asks how to make their car louder.

    How loud is the intake when the silencer is removed?
