    The WRX limited is a very nice car. A nice step over the typical low-quality setup of the WRX interiors. I would suggest you keep that in mind before you start slapping gauge packs here and there. This is the kind of car that will make a nice transition to your grown-up years. But, ultimately, it is your car, so do with it what you will.

    oh common guys he doesn't even know about the magic auto limited edition WRX woopen them STIs XD

    :] anyway, welcome to the club man, you will absolutely love your WRX :] whenever you have a Q needing an A, come here these people really do know a insane amount about these cars :]

    to be honest i would rather go the handling way before Power, because its better to drive fast safe, then faster and not safe you know what i mean?

    Strut Braces, Front and Back:
    from M2 Performance, the site is not loading up, so i will post it up latter.
    These are not the bast, but on a tight budget they do the job+

    Struts:
    I would try try to get some OEM STI struts with aftermarket springs until you get the money to buy coil-overs.

    Springs(S. Tech):
    http://www.jscspeed.com/catalog/Suba...ubaru_STI.html
    Get these only if you get the anti-lift kit, because it drops your cars hight which makes it annoying in winter.

    Anti-Dive kit(first posting, race kit):
    http://www.jscspeed.com/catalog/Suba...u_WRX_STI.html
    If you get those springs above, it will make your car about stock hight.

    Sway bars would be a good idea, but they are pretty expensive, because the end-links to match are about as-much and the bars themeless:

    Sway Bars(Front and Back):

    End-links(Front and Back Second Posting):
    http://www.jscspeed.com/catalog/Whit...uty_Alloy_1842
    all together this should run you about 1289$ plus shipping.

    Tein S-tech springs suck.

    I'd upgrade your sways before you upgrade your springs. Perrin sells the package F/R sways, endlinks, stout mounts, and hardware for about $700. You can find the package discounted for about $500. With lowered springs and an Anti-lift kit, you will need to have a camber alignment done, so keep that in mind. It may run you around $300 for the full alignment.

    The interior isn't that different, when comparing the Limited to a standard WRX.

    When you're sitting in the driver seat the only difference a Limited WRX driver will notice is the seats are covered in leather below and there is a sunroof above.

    On the gauges, I suggest going with an over the steering wheel column approach. With a boost and oil pressure gauges.

    A-piller pods reduce visibility on that side of the car too much. Clock pods are good, but then you loose the clock ;p

    Strut braces are more bling than function (with the exception of a rear strut brace on wagons); I would hold off on that until you've pretty much finished your suspension.

    The only compatible struts would be '04, and while capable and a decent upgrade, there are better options.

    Unless you're strictly looking for an aesthetic upgrade, do not buy these springs.

    I'll preface this criticism with the following: ALK is my favorite suspension modification so far. With that said...

    If you plan on competing in motorsports (one of the best and most fun things a car enthusiast can do), check to see what this does to your classing. In SCCA Auto-X rules, an ALK rapes you, and would put you in a class that you have absolutely no chance competing in if you don't have >$10K invested in the car.

    If you go with a full exhaust, the accessport (or some sort of tune) is a must. So I fixed it for you!

    not bad. But make sure that you have a way of switching between tuning maps. i.e. Romraider + tactrix cable
