Hello all - my name is BD, and I am a new WRXaholic.
Joined the site a while back, and have been very happy with the quality of the members and the information - impressive.
Ordered my car back in December and it arrived at my dealership in Flemington NJ last week. One week into my first WRX and I am in love. I knew the compromises coming in so I'm not really disappointed by anything other than the seemingly long wait to take it over 4000 RPMs. I ordered a DGM 5-door with the Short Throw Shifter, Dimming Mirror and Armrest Extension - all of which I am very happy that I got. I also picked up a set of stock sized alloys and Winter Dunlops, which the dealer put on when I picked it up. The car looks great in DGM - classy, muscular, and less attention from the authorities are all good qualities.
No plans to mod much for a while - I want to get to know the car in it's stock form before I change things (plus I like my warranty).
Below are some thumbnails of the car - already winter dirty. Click on 'em for full size if you want.
Good to be among fellow car lovers - see you on the road ...
