    Pretend that your car is faster than it ever was. when you start it just imagine the boxer rumble at idle.. when you shift make the cool blow off valve sound effect(even if your car doesnt have one its still what the cool kids do). Thats all you can do, otherwise this will be the longest week of your life.

    ... on a serious note, what i did was look up videos on youtube nonstop. type in "subaru wrx" and just watch every one. look up parts for your car, and try to find anything you want, even if you cant afford it...

    I drive an 87 Mazda B2600, other than their both 4WD it'll be like comparing apples to grouchy old fat men. don't plan on doing much to it, other than an aluminum skid plate, and cheap rims to put snow tires on in the fall..............This week is gonna SUCK!

    Awesome! Congrats on the new ride. Hmm, as for suggestions.. take a bottle of benedryl and knock out for a week. Haha, j/k. Just read the forums, find out what your goals are for the car, and get your car wash/detailing supplies ready! Lol.

    A combination of prescription drugs, ether, meth and alcohol. I guarantee you'll be in your car before you know it, after detox of course.

    800 miles more till I can stop being nice, maybe by then the gravel will be swept off all of the cool MTN roads!

    She's a beaut. Northern Idaho is gorgeous as I recall from my last trip there. Just take some looong scenic drives and tack on those last few hundred miles and let loose. Welcome.
