Hey guys, finally decided to join the forum. I've been wanting a WRX/STI since I was 15 over 10 years ago and finally am making good enough $$. I picked up a new 2009 wrx white (made 07/2009 i checked the door to see if it was one with engine problems so i got lucky) SPT edition. It has the cat back exhaust with some little SPT badges behind the front wheel fenders. All in all im impressed with the car and want to do some mods to it without sacraficing drivability. The STI was tempting but I plan to use the $$ for mods.
A few of my friends have some heavily modified mitsubishi EVO's and they all are pushing me to get a front mount intercooler and a tune. I kind of don't want to void my warranty and wish SPT would put out more aftermarket parts for the 09 WRX. Also to those with the 09 and short shifter is it worth it? I don't find the throws too bad in this car. My previous cars were Honda Del Sol, 2000 Mustang GT (over 400hp all motor), Honda civic SI which i've all done a decent amount of mods to, but I want to do this car right.
I'm happy to be in the WRX club and look forward to posting on this forum!
