    first time subaru owner

    hey guys, i just bought a brand new 2011 blue wrx 5door, and let me tell ya
    THIS CAR IS AMAZING.
    i had a 2010 white honda si, it was a good car for the time i had it (put on it 33k miles in only a year and 4months). i made the choice of switching because the car wasnt really reliable during the winter.

    but anyways, im the biggest noob when it comes to modifications, soo im very glad to have you guys here to answer the many questions ill have in the future

    Yea man I switched from having a 2000 civic si to now having a 2004 sti. It is definitely more reliable in the winter and also alot more fun to own. You can learn alot by reading from this site. Club members know alot of information and have helped me. Welcome to the forum.

    sjcurtis> hell yea! this car wastes so much gas compared to the SI. but it is well worth the money

    but hey im happy that im paying less monthly for this car. i used to pay 300/month and 200/month for insurance. $500 in total.
    for this car thou, im paying 325/monthly and insurance is only 116

    I agree with that statement. It is a big difference in the gas mileage from the civic, but also a lot more fun to drive in my opinion.

    Yep, he pic was from couple days ago.ill try posting a new one up in a bit.
    As of plans, I don't have a single clue. I'm going thru the site, looking forsomething that will give me an idea of how to make the car louder,like a rally car.ILOVE THE SOUND.

    And by the way, I'm from westchester county,in yorktown. I be down in yonkers and bronx all the time though

    If your looking for a little sound just find a good used axle back exhaust for cheap and I don't even think you need a tune for that.

    Sounds to me like he is looking for something that will make the car a lot louder from what he said below, and if that's the case just an axel back exhaust is not nearly going to do the trick.

    Looks like your going to want to get an access port and a cat back exhaust. You can listen to some videos and sound bites from you tube but you really need to hear it in person.
    You should definitely get the AP to tune to stage 1. Do a google search or read the stickies. It makes a world of difference. Happy modding!!
