    New WRX 5Dr

    Just took delivery of my first WRX on 30 July (Sat). Previous vehcle is an 02 VW GTI type 337. The VW had lowered suspension that was a lot stiffer than the WRX. It is nice not to have to worry about scraping the front spoiler on driveways. The lowered suspension also caused the tires to rub the inner fenders and cut them away. Wrx makes less wind noise. The VW stereo was much better. The VW had a good short shifter installed. I have already ordered one with urethane bushings for both ends. The germans really had a bunch of little things done better with control placement and safety features. The auto locking doors that will open from the inside after the car stops are one. Having to remember to unlock the doors to get out is going to take some time. Can't wait till it is broken in to explore the power and confirm I made the right choice.
