    Picking up my first WRX tonight!

    My first Subaru. My first foreign car in fact.

    I traded (gave!) in my 2000 V6 Mustang for an '08 WRX 4 door in metallic gray with a short shifter and some other upgraded package, I forget... no leather seats tho. I think it has the 6 CD and I know it has the auto dimming rear view mirror.

    I pick it up TONIGHT, at 5pm.
    I can't wait!

    Oh, hi btw. I'm Scott.

    Hey, quick question: Is there any way to set something so these forums don't display in reverse chronological order? Because this is going to drive me insane!

    Welcome and enjoy the new car!

    If I were you I'd look into ordering the SPT exhaust while they are still on sale. $333 instead of $879. It definitely allows you to hear the boxer rumble.

    Here's a pic of it installed on my '08. You can see how much bigger the pipes are compared to the stock pipes.

    Haha that's what I thought when I first drove it...

    I didn't expect quite so much...

    Congrats on the new buy...
