    Hello...a little bit about myself....

    I am new to this board and a new WRX owner I have made a few posts but no formal introduction yet so thought I'd do that now...

    I bought my 2010 Subaru 5-door WRX after much research. Its my first real sports car ever. I looked at mazda 3's, audi a3's, civic si's but chose the Subaru, which was actually my initial first choice the whole time. I gave the other cars a chance to talk me out of it, but they couldn't.

    I am an older guy (41) and have kids so I don't have a whole lot of time to mod the car or mess with it too much (of course, when I bought it I told my wife I was not going to do ANYTHING to it....and that is already out the window) but I will be doing some work on it.

    I've already added a new head unit (see pics) and tinted the rear windows. I plan to get some perrin shifter bushings and some rally armor mud flaps. Fog lights and blue footwell illumination will be going on when it goes in for first dealer service in a couple of weeks.

    I am thinking of getting an air filter also...any recommendations on that?? I am open to suggestions.....

    Anyhow, hello and thanks for all the info I've already received from the members on this board....

    Greetings and welcome to the Club!

    Unless you start seriously modding, the stock air filter will do just fine. I have a K&N I used a few years ago ... but after reading some less than positive articles / threads on their actual filtering ability I went back to stock OEM filters.

    Welcome to the forums. Lots of great people / info here. As far as replacement panel filters... there are lots of options. I run the K&N myself, no problems here. Happy modding.
