    new to "the club"

    hi all, i've been lurking as a guest for some time now, but today is the day i pick up my wrx, so i figured today would be the day i'd register and introduce myself.

    stuff you don't really care about: john, 30, software engineer soon to be living in monument, colorado (in colorado springs right now, moving up in june).

    stuff you care about: 2010 base hatch wrx in silver spark, plus a couple miscellaneous options. i already have a k&n intake, kartboy ss, and rally mud flaps to bolt on (the wife isn't exactly happy), but that's probably going to be it for a while as this is really just a fun commuter for us.

    i also have a '99 honda accord with 180k miles that will be going to friends soon, and a '97 honda passport with 110k for dirtier deeds (done dirt cheap).

    that's it for now. i'll probably continue lurking mostly, but "hi" for now!

    thanks dark. i'm picking it up tonight so i'll try to get some photos up soon, (though it should look pretty standard, i'm assuming).

    thanks, 06scoobyrex. i'm up to speed on a few of the acronyms now, at least.

    looks interesting matt, but i'm pretty sure if my wife gets mad about me putting mud flaps on the car, she's not going to be happy about autox. ;-) as she occasionally reminds me, it's actually her car (though i do the majority of the driving).

    Hahaha... lol no problem man I'm still learning what they all mean... my wife gets mad too everytime I bring up that I want to do an upgrade... it took me a while to convince her to let me trade in my 08 mountianeer for the wrx... I just told her that it will get better mpg's and I would have a cheaper car payment... it does get slightly better mpg's cause the suv was a V8 and awd as opposed to my turboed awd 4cy car...lol

    okay - i'm allowed one "noob" question, right? i searched quite a bit but i couldn't find one place where the "eye" analogy is fully explained. the terminology sticky above says,

    All those "eye" threads:
    Blob, Bug, Hawk and Stink eyes--these are associated with the perceived look of the headlights and front fascia of the different body styles.


    but doesn't give any years based on those "eyes." so

    1992-2000 =
    2001-2003 = bug eye
    2004-2005 = blob eye
    2006-2007 =
    2008-2011+ =

    (or is 2006 the same as 2008? the body styles are different, but the "eyes" are pretty close)
