    Newbie here!

    Hey, my name is RC (I'm a chic btw). I am from Silver Spring, MD. I'm new to the site but not the car world. I currently own a '04 Cavalier, it's my show car and I have a daily driver which is a Vibe.

    I come to the forum because I am in the process of saving for a real car, and what better then a WRX! I'm hoping to learn as much as I can now before I get mine so when I do get my car I can start my upgrading and working on it right away!

    I am also a part of a site local to me, DCSpeed.net (check my sig) that does local events for MD, DC and VA. Check us out!

    Hi gurl, welcome to the club!

    If you're definitely looking at getting a WRX I suggest you check out the sticky threads in the car purchasing forum...they helped my find my baby!

    Oh but just a warning, if you test drive a WRX you will fall madly in love with it, and being a member of clubWRX you will feel the urge to modify your subie pulsating thru your very soul...there's no turning back.

    That's what my car will look like in the next year...working on my performance mods now!

    But also, make sure you read up on WRX mods because our subies take differently to the same mods a Honda would. For instance, it's best to avoid BOVs, CAIs, and BCs (at least until you are heavily modded, if that's the path you're taking).


    Shoot, if you have time, I'd definitely recommend checking out these two threads (or atleast save them for later) because there's soooooooooooooooooooooooo much information!
    The "Good first mods" sticky
    And here's great coverage of FAQs from NASIOC.

    Welcome! Sounds like you have things all planned out! I am heading up to WISP tomorrow to help with a big adapted skiing/snowboarding event. My car will be in the lot if you want to come and play.

My car domain is www.cardomain.com/id/rcstypej It still needs ALOT of work, but I'll have more updated pics soon, I'm showing March 18th. I will have a drop in the next few weeks and rims soon, then I'll be done with the Cav for a while and onto a WRX!
