    Do not buy any turbo timer.

    None the less... Welcome!

    First Upgrade... Your knowledge. These cars are VERY picky. If you do things improperly, I guarantee that you will be regretting it later on.

    First Modifications - what to do and not to do

    turbo timers are a waste of money bc our turbos are oil & water cooled.

    Welcome! This is a shot in the dark, but did you happen to buy your car at Mid-city Subaru on Irving Park Road in Chicago? My wife and I looked at a car with the EXACT description of your car about 2 weeks ago at that dealer.

    We really liked it too. We decided to purchase exactly what we want though and ordered the color and options from the factory. Enjoy the car though it was really nice!

    We ended up buying a 2011 5 door limited in WR Blue. We live on Irving Park but down near Lakeshore. What about you? We are actually about to move to the east coast, so we decided to order from a dealer back there and just pick it up when we move back.
