    Very broad question it all depends on what all your plans are for your car in the future, if you're looking for power, if you're looking for control/safe etc.

    But generally speaking up pipe, turbo back exhaust, cobb ap, downpipe

    P.S. I'm actually selling my 03 wrx and might be returning it to stock so if you're looking at buying some mods PM me and we can talk it up

    I'm not a Subaru savvy person, but I always opt for (in order) :

    #1 Suspension, wheels, brakes
    #2 Power/Drivetrain
    #3 Esthetics (if desired)

    well this is my dream idea.

    Find a audi with good engine and completely stock, and black exterior and enterior.

    My plans, in general, are:

    1)Suspension, probably drop 1.5" or so
    2)Custom exhaust
    3)18" bbs rims (maybe polished lip) with yohahoma tires
    4)Upgrade brakes
    5)Tint windows and maybe tail lights
    6)HID lights

    after all that shenanigans, depending how I feel, I might toss on a fat turbo on it and have a ball

    Sorry but what do you think he is trying to do? I'm not attacking you but merely just trying to make the point that EVERYONE starts somewhere. He is obviously trying since he is on a wrx forum.

    Again I'm not trying to be rude

    Saying that I will agree with you to an extent

    You probably want to ask more specific questions, explore your car a bit and your options. before thinking about moding your car

    Since you just bought the car, why don't you just drive it for a while.
    That way, once you are used to it, you can better decide what you think it needs to better suit you.

    Once you figure out a general guideline of what you are looking to change, you can then ask more specific questions such as "I'm thinking about exhaust, what are some different options I should consider going with for X vehicle?"

    I agree, a person has to start somewhere, but doing modifications I don't feel is something that needs to be 'rushed' by any means.

    My posts are low but its not my first rodeo

    As much as I know my local tuner hates a pickle party at his shop, it might be the best thing for you to go to a tuning shop and talk with the person(s) who work on them all the time.
    My experience is the people who go for looks are never happy. You bought an awesome machine tighten the nut behind the wheel before you worry about anything else.
    Last, welcome to the family those that will insult you because of your noobiness were there once to. I think its when you get to 500 posts you are considered a subaru genius (apparently Jeffmm06 is just that.)

    Welcome to the club! There are several good suggestions here. Additionally, searching, exploring and reading will be helpful in your decision making. Make sure you explore the "answers" link in my signature too!

    I understand that seeing the same question/s posted over and over and over by new members can be a little frustrating. However, I think some of you may have just been surfing with your new-post button and perhaps you didn't realize you were actually posting in "New Member Hangout" Forum...

    This is definitely not the forum for "Do a search N00b!!! I don't pick your blah blah..." posts. Even if it was only meant as humor I don't think too man new folks would find it funny. We were all new at some point. Well... except me... j/k

    Make sure you pay attention to where you are posting and if you don't like n00b questions then don't post in the NMH forum.

    ...I agree...but searching should be your first option to find something...most of the time what you are looking for has already been talked about...if not, then ask...but be specific...Pat'swrx has a point of being a broad question...but I bet if you search "first mods" in search over at HOME or in SEARCH (above in the contents bar)...usually the first thing that n00bs ask is "what should be my first mods"...never fails ...it gets annoying after a while so we either:

    A) Ignore You
    B) Be A Jerk To You
    or
    C) Help You

    ...also search over at NASIOC.....but if you're exploration is a failure or you still have some doubts...please feel free to ask...someone will (most likely) help you out...

    Personally, I'd start with the convertible mod. It's a really great one, just get a chopsaw and have at it. Costs very little and it'll give you some great benefits. With the top off, you're also going to be a lot faster with all of that weight loss.

    i think after that your ready for the screwgun to the headers mod, it makes the exhaust louder than any civic
