    new subaru and new to the forum

    Hey Everyone,

    about two weeks ago i just bought an 09 wrx in obsidian black pearl and just finished the break in period of about 1000 miles. lookin foward to actually pushing it a bit. im getting tints in about a week or so and im gonna order a SPT boost gauge in a few weeks as well. Does anyone know where i can get a 4door catback SPT system thats not 900 bucks through Subaru? also i wanted to swap my halogen lights for 09 STI HID lights, does anyone know if they are exactly the dimensions. i called the dealership and they want 750 for each light which is obvisouly pricey. im looking forward to learning a bunch of new stuff about the car and hopefully getting into some future mods so ill take all tips/recomendations

    Hi and welcome. Are you sure you want an SPT catback, they are on the loud side. That's what I have and I'm looking to replace it with something not so loud.

    You hit a thousand miles in 2 weeks!? You are a trooper! I've had my car for 3 and a half weeks and I just turned 600 tonight. If you keep driving like you're driving, in one year, you'll have driven 26,000 miles........... YOU DRIVE A LOT!

    sorry, but comparred to the perrin catback, the SPT sound to muffled.

    I say order the perrin catback. Its cheaper and sounds better.
