i need suggestions for first mods
or aim me please
Lighter, Wider, Stronger Wheels
Wider, stickier rubber
Sway Bars + Endlinks + Springs
Subie 4pot brakes + better pads + maybe rotors
Then go fast mods.
2003 Subaru Impreza WRX
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
#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
3)18" bbs rims (maybe polished lip) with yohahoma tires
5)Tint windows and maybe tail lights
after all that shenanigans, depending how I feel, I might toss on a fat turbo on it and have a ball
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.
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.)

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.

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.
