    2006 WRX Ltd recently purchased

    Good morning!

    As a long-time Subaru driver -- I've had a 1997 Outback Sport and a 2004 Outback Sport -- I've recently purchased a 2006 (Aspen White) WRX Limited from Mitchell Subaru in Canton, CT.

    The car had about 32K when I purchased it in late December 2008 and is a five-speed manual transmission with a sweet Momo shifting knob. It's a hatchback with heated leather seats, an "upgraded" stereo system, a sunroof, and a nice 230 hp, which isn't massive but is certainly more than I'm used to.

    I'm very excited about driving the car . . . While the speed can be sweet (!) I'm a bit more interested in handling and this vehicle certainly handles better than any car I've owned in the past.

    Best wishes,
    Jonathan

    Hatch vs. Wagon

    Hey,

    What's the difference between a hatchback and a wagon?

    Thanks,
    Jonathan

    Suspension mods

    Yes, it was a nice buy, esp. at $19K! What would you recommend for suspension mods?
    Thanks,

    Depending what you currently have, a performance tire can make all the difference. For the summer I run Goodyear Eagle F1 G3-D3.

    Also swaybars and endlinks are a great way to upgrade.
    Do some research, you'll learn alot.
