    New member and new to Subaru

    Hi all, I'm Mike. Just bought me a brand new 2011 WRX base hatch in Obsidian Black Pearl last Thursday. I'm 27, live in Albany, NY and have owned and modded quite a few different rides. I was shopping non stop since November for a 2008 Acura TL Type S 6 speed. The 3rd gen Type S was my dream car for a long time. My friend told me to go take a look at the WRX. Once I drove it, there was no going back. I had to have one. I'm absolutely in love with it.

    I plan on doing some mods but want to learn as much as I can first. I'm interested in as much SPT as I can get ahold of but I see on Subaru's website everything stops at 2010. Isn't it basically the same as the 09-10?

    Anyway, pics will come soon but it is stock (besides the auto dimming mirror). I'm sure you all know what it looks like. I'll also post some pics of my other projects, current and past. Alright, no need to keep rambling .

    Welcome aboard and congrats on the WRX!

    I have the SPT Catback exhaust on my 05 Subie and I love it.
    Yeah, I think 2010 is just like the 2011.

    By the way IMO,OBP is the only color that goes with that ugly new NY plate.

    lol, i was so pissed at first. i sold my truck back in august (nyr8er's Album: 2006 Toyota Tacoma SR5 4x4 Access Cab 6 Speed M/T) and had to turn in my plates cause my girlfried and i shared an 09 Accord EX-L V6 coupe. she ended up buying it from "us" and i went and bought the REX. but when i got it i forgot all about the new plates. they're actually growing on me now though.
