My name is Dan and I am a proud new owner of a SWP 2011 WRX in the west Chicago burbs. Ordered her the Saturday after Thanksgiving and picked her up this Saturday before Christmas. I had to order her in SWP with compass rear view mirror, all weather mats, and trunk cargo tray, but I know I will appreciate those items during my ownership.
I’ve had a few cars in the past, but I most regret trading in my 05 RSX for my 08 TSX. I now feel that I have corrected that mistake w/ the purchase of this WRX. It’s such a fun car and I can’t wait until the break-in period is over. I am enjoying it even now, so I know the car will be a riot then after 1000 miles.
I plan to keeping it mostly stock. I am done with the modifying my cars (at least I am telling myself this now), but I may just get a short shifter, shift knob, tinted windows, and maybe different wheels, but the first thing I need to do is try to get myself out of these factory tires (Yeesh!).
Here are a couple of pics of the WRX. I also threw in a pic of my old cars.
Anyway, it’s great to have resources and a community like this and look forward to being a part of it.
