    Mod fever

    Whats the longest someone has waited to modify their car after purchasing it? I kept telling myself I wasnt going to modify it at all, but I feel like Im catching this fever where I just daydream about what it could feel like/sound like with just one or two things done to it...

    I have an 06 WRX TR with 46k miles in perfect condition but I am extremely tempted to use the money from my previous vehicle to go to stage 2 with a cobb AP & TBE. I love the way the exhaust looks discretely like the stock one, and the sound is pretty intoxicating as well...

    Can I get some support here?? I know Im not the only one who gets these thoughts so soon. I have had the car for about a month, haha.

    I went 6 days and 210 miles before installing my exhaust. That has to be a long time compared to some people.

    I've had the car for 2 weeks, and I'm planning on doing the clutch and exhaust this weekend.

    I may just pick up the AP and hang at stage 1 for a while. Tough call really, but I know Ill be happy with any configuration between stock and stage 2. What an amazing car....

    0 miles. I bought my original WRX new off the lot and before I drove it off it had something on it. The dealership at the time offered some aftermarket parts and I got them to throw in a Cobb catback with the sale. I remember SPT made nothing but stickers back then.

    Same but different. I had the dealer add an SPT suspension kit. At the time it consisted of v.7 STi struts-springs, aluminum control arms and slightly larger sway bars. The only parts from the kit still on the WRX are the control arms.

    The rest of my mods were done a little at a time. 6 years later it has yet to stop.
