    New '08 WRX Owner

    Hey,
    Brand new to this forum and also a brand new WRX owner. Bought the '08 at the end of September and have been in love ever since. Unfortunately I live right outside NYC and use my car for work, being in sales I'm on the road all day so I went with an auto transmission. Sitting in the 2 and change hours of traffic I do a day, a 5 speed would have been a chore.

    Looking forward to getting advise and input on upgrades and mods as they become available. Don't think there's really much out there yet for the 08's

    The sports grill on your 08 looks sick! I looked at your original post about the car. Did you buy the car with the grill on it?

    yep, bought it with the sports grill already on there. I got the Navigation too. I honestly didn't like the navi at first, but now i think it is awesome. Although i think my Garmin is easier to use.

    right now i have exhaust, wideband o2, and my other goodies will be installed by friday night.

    Where around NYC are you located? Got the hatch or sedan?
    And getting an auto for city traffic is probably the smartest decision.

    Looks good, but it looks like your detailer installed some nice swirl marks for you as well!! Find a good detailer in your area to knock those out and it will look great!!!
