    This is very true.......and stay away from rocks and gravel.
    Also clean every bug off the front every second you can.
    They will eat through the paint very fast.
    Wax it every 6 mths no matter what.
    Congrats on the new WRX!!!

    yup, i'm a NJ boy, not too far from E-Town.

    i haven't driven an older WRX, but i think this could/should handle better in the turns than it current does. my old Mustang with just sub frames, Cobra R sway bars, poly bushings, and a k-member brace took turns better i think, and that's not too crazy with suspension mods.

    as for wax, that's on my list too. i'm going to give the paint a month or two to cure, then it's getting a hand wax job at my detailer's.

    Subaru apparently dials in a fair amount of understeer into these cars not to mention the stock tires are junk.

    Tires, alignment, swaybars/endlinks should if properly set up fix most of the handling issues.

    If it rides/drives anything like the Legacy, there are some owners who are going to be pleasantly surprised.
