    Proud 09' Owner

    Hey guys!

    I just picked up an 09 WRX yesterday. I have been reading various forums including this one for some time now. Although I am a new Subaru owner, I do have some history with the WRX. My step father owned both an 02' WRX and an 04' WRX STi. Lucky for me, I got to drive them both extensively.

    Before this WRX, I owned an RSX Type S which was a nice car. It ran very well, it was quick, and even after 7 years looked great! Still, it was time for a new car. All wheel drive, 265hp, nice grunty sound, four doors - SIGN ME UP.

    Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself. Here's a pic of my new baby.

    congrats on the 09

    I just bought one in February and love it. If have done some simple mods if you are thinking about modifying it at all, any accesport questions I would be happy to answer as well.

    Congrats and welcome to the club. A simple mod to make it even better, get a short throw shifter setup and shifter bushings. Makes a huge difference in the feel and the travel from 1st to 2nd is now 3".

    Congrats! My old 2001 integra looked like crap when I got rid of it for my 09 WRX, I'll do better.

    Also, I got the bad engine, just blew up on me yesterday at 14,000 miles.

    Wow such a warm welcome!

    As of right now, I only have a few things planned. Kenwood 9140, hardwired radar detector, and shifter bushings are all on the list and should be waiting for me when I get home.

    I'm a tinkerer at heart so I wouldn't doubt more is to come but I am trying to keep this one as stock as possible!
