I have been browsing this site for a week or so, and have greatly utilized the search function, checked out the pics of the rides of the members here, etc.
I've wanted a Subbie for a few years now, but it wasn't until recently that I could afford one. Yesterday I bought myself an 02 blue "bugeye" WRX. (i'll take some pics as soon as the Chicago weather allows)
So far I have "clear corners" and another visual mod near the grill, which I can't really explain without a photo. I know someone on this forum has it. It is a small piece that has 3 holes in it. (i'll try to find the pic and link it to this thread) I also have "eyelid" covers so the car looks a bit sleepy lol.
I'm currently looking into doing a few minor mods to my subbie since I have a warranty on it, and can't really afford to void the warranty by installing an up-pipe, or bov.
What's the general consensus on "generic" Ebay catback exhaust systems? I know a CAI is useless since I'm not pushing 300HP. I can not afford a tune at the moment, and even if I could it would void my warranty. I'm looking to add a bit of "flair" to the car whether it be visual or whatever. I noticed a very few subbies have yellow fog lamps and I can't seem to find a "how to" to make mine yellow.
Besides the car, and more about me;
I'm 28 and married to the love of my life, I live in Chicago and have too many hobbies for time to allow.
I have been playing guitar since 1994, and am an avid gamer. I own a website and run a podcast about videogames. Any gamer can check it out at Home | The Total Gamer
When I'm not working on my podcast I'm at the gym working on looking good naked lol.
I do have previous experience with autos as I have built a 95 civic that ran with mustang 5.0's, and had a 2000 Firebird that ran with LS1's as well. Currently I'm not looking to mod my Subbie to be all HP, but just add to the fun and make it my own. When my warranty runs out in 2011, then I'll be looking into upgrading the car into a Cobb stage 1 or 2 depending on what my funds allow. One can't be so sure at this time due to the economy.
Any recommendations on the car would be fantastic, and I hope to be a long time member of these boards.
