Hey all, I'm going to be a proud new owner next week when I take delivery on my 2011 SWP Limited hatch, and I'm going crazy with excitement!
My first Subie was a 2002 WRX WRB (sedan), and I have missed that car ever since it left my possession. But I totaled it on the hwy in HEAVY HEAVY rain, lost control, etc. Since then I've owned a 330ci and a Scion xB most recently (lol, I know, good utility tho).
Anyway, I bought the 2011 from Grand Subaru in Chicago, got a smokin' deal (I think) from the sales manager there, Joe D'Andrea (whom I do recommend), for $1,206 under invoice!
The options for now are the roof rack, bike rack, wheel carrier, red illumination kit, arm rest extension and SPT exhaust. I will be tinting 5% rear and 20% front within the first week and getting rally armor flaps pretty soon after that...
Anyway, don't know what else to say, but figured I'd say what's up to the people that share the same passion!
Any suggestions on must do mods (diy is ok too) that will not risk voiding warranty? On my 2002 I removed my intake silencer, which added a nice sound... Would that void a warranty on my 2011? I am 27 and and work in B2B outside sales, but I won't lie, I'm a fan of atmospheric BOV's, can't wait to mod it right to make that work without A/F probs... Will a drop in air filter void my warranty? Any mods I can do that won't void, please share!
Anyone that has a '11 SWP hatch, please post pics, I've only found 8 or 9 decent pics of my car here and would love to see more.
Also, the official break-in is under 4k rpm's for the first 1k miles, right???
