    New WRX

    Hi everyone! My name is Kathleen and I am new to this site as well as being new to Subaru. I bought my 2010 WRX about two weeks ago and I love it!

    I'm not new to small turbo charged engines as I drove a SRT-4 from 2004-2008 and I had tons of fun with the car. I got rid of it because I thought I should be an adult and get something that wasn't so loud and fast....boy was I wrong! I ended up with a Tibby (I know, how embarrassing!) and missed my little loud/fast annoying car and got out of the Tibby as fast as I could and ended up with the WRX which I am very happy with. No tourque steer!!!

    I am looking forward to adding mods to the car, but I have no idea where to start vendor wise which is why I came here. I'm hoping this forum has some friendly members willing to help out with that. I am looking for just some basic bolt ons right now. An intake and exhaust. A full exhaust that's moderately loud and hopefully doesn't sound like a kazoo. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Oh BTW, here is a couple of pics:

    if a nice exaust sound is what you want, you definately picked the right car!!! subarus in general are known for their unique exhaust note. or the subaru rumble as we call it...

    btw nice car, def a fan of the sedan,

    i have the 09 sedan same car lol =] i have the SPT exhaust on it i like it not to loud seems kinda quite though I believe invidia is in production of a super quite 3" catback if you want really quite. also 3gwrx.com is a really good site for are model car. I would recommend a Downpipe when you do the CBE and intake.


    dont forget you need to get tuned

    Thanks! Love the white!

    I will get it tuned. AMS in West Chicago seems to be the place to go.
