Im a little late, but welcome to the club! Your car looks very sharp already, and Im glad you already have some ideas of what you want to do with it. How have the mods youve had for the 7 months already been working out for you? And how in the hell is the bottom of your car so clean?! Haha. Also, is it just me or are only your rear windows tinted? What would be the reason for doing this, since Im considering a tint--I thought people just did the 100% of the glass on the car. Enjoy the forum, I know I have been.
Im sure you know a great deal more than me, but just letting you know for comparison, I have similiar plans and here is the order I intend to do them in (as of now, Im completely stock)
-first thing people kept telling me was get your tuning options figured out first, since any mods that dont require a tune wouldnt really be making significant difference. So, considering I need a newb/idiot proof tuning method, I was gonna buy the access port first (which you can install the stage 1 map on with stock parts while you wait to acquire more stuff)
-next thing for me would be the cobb tbe which includes the DP, and once thats installed I will go to stage 2
-only after these things are done will I start to focus on cosmetic stuff, which wont even be that much, probably just tinted windows, and if work is going really well, new wheels. I dunno about this category, I dont think I will mind if my car looks pretty much the same on the outside as long as its a bit louder and can rip up the road more than a stock one.
Anyway, enough about me, just letting you know the order I had spent a lot of time considering/reading about. Have a good one and keep us posted!
2006 WRB WRX Sedan @ Stage 2
Plans as of right now...
-Look for an AP or maybe do some more research on the tactrix cable, I kinda liked that idea.
-Up-pipe, Down-pipe, Rest of the exhaust (Stage 2 it) And I've always liked Invidia for some reason, so I'd probably go with their product, maybe not for the rest of the exhaust after the DP, but definitely the UP and DP. Any thoughts on that?
-Then once I have more money go deeper into the world of modding and actually start aiming for some numbers. Hopefully try and get her to 300awhp, with a long list of mods. I'd be super happy with that, but that won't be for awhile!

UP finally came in, went with the invidia. Now I just have to install it.
