We just traded in our 2004 TSX 6 speed for a 2008 WRX Sedan 5 speed. We will be doing some light modifications to the car and she will be learning how to drive it at some DEs while I toy around with it at some track days while instructing.
Since the 2008 doesn't have the raw appeal as the previous WRX I've read a lot of reviews calling it a Camry which is quite unfair as after test driving the WRX we bought it handles and gets traction out of corners like few cars.
We may upgrade some items such as HID low beams and some minor power modifications (intake / downpipe / exhaust). We ordered it with the STi shifter, fog lights, conv package, and some smaller items. I'm expecting it to be a good and fun to drive car. We also will be putting on a roof rack and roof box for some more storage room for road trips (wife, kid and dog).
I'm hoping this board is well informative and for the serious WRX owner. Can't wait to meet some KC WRX peeps too.
I do have one question - with the 2008 so new...what is currently available for these cars?
