Greetings everyone. I just bought my first Subaru last week, a 2006 WRX Wagon. I needed a car that could move more stuff than my Tiburon GT and handled bad weather better, and didn't want to give up performance. One drive of my WRX through some torrential downpours was all it took to convince me that this was THE car for me!
I love this car, I have almost 500 miles on it in 7 days. I'm being gentle, as per the recomendations during break in, but its so much fun to drive. I haven't enjoyed being behind the wheel of a street car this much since I bought my old BMW Z3 back in '99, and that was roadster! I never thought I'd feel this way about a car that would also haul my bass gear at the same time!
I found this site while doing research into mods, I'm planning on doing some rallyx and trackdays next year. First mods on the plate are some serious bad weather tires. I live in MD so snow isn't a huge problem but we get a lot of sleet and ice in the winter. I'd like to find a tire that could work for that as well as rallyx competition, is there such a tire? Also do I need to switch from the 17" wheels that are stock on the 06 WRX?
Thanks for your help, looking forward to a long fun time as a member of the Subie family.
