    HEY!
    sorry for being gone so long...

    I really loved my car, it's great but...
    ok, before i chose an automatic transmission model, for reasons being i wasn't used to driving manual and my parents advised me that it's easier for driving and more convenient (and that my mother could drive it).

    but after just a few months, i got used to driving manual (been practicing) and think i'm proficient with it.

    so now i'm kinda regretting not getting a manual...

    After several, and with a job, I'm probably ready to do some upgrades. Before I do, I'm wondering if my car is compatible with STI performance parts. At first, I thought so since they are almost the same. but then I realized STI are different in design and platform. It even uses a different engine, apparently. It's something I didn't know and taken for granted.
    In the end, I'm wondering if it possible to mix and match WRX and STi performance parts?
    though I think I already know the answer.... No....

    anyway, again, I'm thinking about upgrading my car performance, little by little.
    I'd started working after a while now, and will save up some money, I want to do things little bit at a time.
    I guess I'll start with Intake and Exhaust, so I can make my car sound better during acceleration.
    any advices? where should I start? which one should I buy? the best for my car...

    you should get a catback exhaust or something, the automatic has a shifting thing right? where you can shift gears or something?
