    New Member, First Subaru.

    Just stopping by to say hi. Picked up my first Subaru last Monday (my awesome wife led the charge on this purchase). It is a 2009 Obsidian Black WRX. Not many options, didn't want many either. Center console, short throw, and one other thing or two that I can't remember.

    My only complaint is I don't have enough time to drive it due to work and my commute is extremely short (poor me - I know, lol). I am just hoping the break-in period will be over before my road trip in a month. Here's a quick pic.



    Previous car was an 2003 Audi A4 Avant. Love that wagon, but I needed something sportier, with AWD and a manual transmission... and maybe a warranty.



    I don't plan on doing any mods to the WRX other than exhaust, suspension (maybe) and wheels. Mr. Murphy has put me in my place when it comes to modding DDs. My lesson has been learned.

    Later!

    Yes it is, and a pain to keep that way. I may need to consider purchasing car washing supplies in bulk.

    Long story short, I'm 30 yrs old, on my 14th car (second brand new) getting stranded with a kid in the car is not fun anymore so I normally leave the powertrain alone. Which is pretty tough to do with a turbo in the engine bay.

    I just saw a white 08-09 WRX with tint yesterday and it looked awesome. So, pretty soon.

    My build date is 04/09. I think that puts me in the clear right?
