    New Subaru WRX Owner, Introduction...

    Well, today I just purchased my first Subaru. My Honda Prelude was totaled last week, so I decided to go ahead and buy my dream car! I purchased a 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX in Wr Blue Pearl. I believe its loaded, it came with the touch screen GPS Navigation, Satellite radio, heated seats, security system with shock sensor, auto dimming mirror/compass, and all the other good stuff. Is there anything I should know about the car in general? I normally get on a forum and do research before buying, but this was an exception. I absolutely fell in love with the car when I saw it. I will have pictures up tomorrow, and I know, this thread is worthless without pics!

    No big deal, there isn't much to watch out for when buying a brand new car from a dealer.

    BUT. Be sure to do your research before you decide to modify it!

    Thanks alot! As of right now I have no modifications planned, and I plan to keep the vehicle forever! If anything is done, it will be an exhaust system on it, I love the boxer purr. I haven't done any research yet, but I'm sure I will.

    Is there any need for a turbo timer on these cars? A while back I used to always hear it was bad to just cut off the car after driving. I drive maybe 8 miles to work and thats all, is it necessary for the car to idle to cool the turbo down or no?

    welcome!

    our turbos are liquid and oil cooled. even after the car shuts down, it continues to cool itself off. no need for a turbotimer at all.
