    New WRX Owner

    Hello, I just bought an '08 WRX Sedan w/ Navi last week. WR Blue. I absolutely love it and will be a Subie owner for life. Pics are going to have wait, it's in the shop getting tinted right now. There will be plenty more mods to come. I'm looking forward to learning a lot from all of the members here.

    Do the '08s have a nickname yet (ie bugeye, hawkeye, etc)?

    Congrats on the purchase and welcome to the board. I don't think that the '08s have a name yet but I could be wrong.

    There is a "stop-sale" on a bunch of the '08s right now that you should definitely talk to your dealer about. I don't have the VIN number off the top of my head but it's floating around the site somewhere. I think for the most part it's on WRXs that were sold/built around 1/8/2008-recent. There are reports of a knocking noise in the engine so stay on top of that. Definitely look for the report on the site though so you can find the VIN number because if your car had been sitting around the dealer for a few months you might be in the clear.

    Can't wait to see pics!

    it has not been issued yet, its only for cars built since since the beginning of the year. subaru will take care of it after they fix all the ones on their lots, so they can start selling them again.

    Looks just like mine! Dont forget to baby it for the first 1,000 miles!!! Its tempting, trust me I know!!! But be on the safe side and dont rev over 4,000 Rpm's! No highway driving either just to blow through 1,000 miles, it's gotta be mostly city driving Good luck with it and I can only hope you have as much fun with it as I am!!! Oh yeah one more tip.... If you plan on doing any mods, then you may want to jump all over the SPT exhaust... it's only $333 for a limited time!!!! Great deal IMO!!!!
