    First time Subaru owner

    Hey guys, this is not only my first Subaru it's my first car ever (I'm 27). I've always liked the sti and as of 09 the wrx caught my attention also. Then the 2011's did it for me. I traded in my 2005 Nissan Frontier Nismo 6-speed for a 2011 WRX sedan. I got the base model with all season mats and short throw shifter. It's a huge transition going from a truck to a sports car. While my truck was not slow by any means it was still a truck. The car is a blast to drive and it's so much easier to drive. I know a decent amount about cars in general but don't know the in's and out's of the WRX so that's why I'm here to learn what I can about the car.

    Also, here is a pic of the car and the truck..

    Got the windows tinted 20% all around and took off the trunk badges. Car looks much better already. Took it up to 5k rpm's in 2nd and 3rd gear about 3/4 throttle a few times and I was pretty impressed.

    She is Beautiful! I like the tint! CA law says no tint on the pass/driver side LAME! I wanted to do the same when I get my ride, but don't want the cops rolling me. Looks so much better with all IMO

    Thanks, it is great for one day after you clean it, haha. I love black vehicles but they are tough to take care of.

    Thanks, the tint did make the car look much better, I've been getting a bunch of compliments on the car. PA tint law is nothing under 70% but I've always had 20% without much trouble. Most cops don't bother with it unless you are being an idiot.
