    New owner of an 03 WRX

    I recently purchased an 03 WRX. I stumbled across this site while browsing around for some information on possible upgrades and thought I would sign-up. My previous car, an 01 Miata, is a casualty of the first major winter storm here in Madison. As a result, I wanted to get something that could handle the snow better. There haven't been any bad snow days, unfortunately, but on the one decent snow day we had, I was quite pleased with the WRX.

    I think I definitely will upgrade the exhaust at some point. Beyond that, I'm not really sure. I need to do more research on what's out there and what are good mods for the car.

    My camera is on the fritz right now, but I'll get some pics posted when I either get that resolved or get a new camera.

    Another thing I would like to upgrade is the shifter. Maybe get a short-throw shifter. That's one area where the Miata really spoiled me.

    I kinda want to wait until we get a big snow here, then take a picture of the car all covered in snow.
