    New 2011 WRX owner

    Hi,

    Bought my new Silver 2011 WRX hatchback Premium in April. Had to wait a little while for delivery due to the Earthquake in Japan, plus high demand. I wanted eitherBlue or Silver, and the Silver was the first available, so took it. Like the silver with the dark alloy wheels. Loved the car out of the box, but immediately had plans to modify it. Liked the 265BHP, but there was room for improvement, especially with the torque, and the Turbo lag.
    List of mods to date in order of addition:
    Rally armor mudflaps
    STI exhaust surround
    Debadged front and back (except WRX badge on back)
    Invidia Catback exhaust
    AEM cold air intake
    Cobb accessport stage 1
    Rear (passenger back) tinted windows
    Bluebatmobile Red rearlight overlays with 3/10 smoke rear turn signals
    In 2 words LOVE IT!! The WRX now looks and performs great
    The engine runs much smoother, and now pulls like a freight train from 3000rpm, and sounds friggin awesome with the Invidia and the AEM.
    The torque curve is much improved, as is the power.
    The red light overlays were amust, as I hated the clear rear lights (especially on a silver car )
    More mods will be added, when my bank account allows Next on the list will be the downpipe and cobb stage2, followed closely by upgraded brakes, so I don't run rear end some slow Civic, Lexus or infinity.
    I will try to add some photos
    Nick

    Tks Chepest mod that looks real good are the red taillight overlays. Cost $60 for the overlays, and $50 to get installed at local tint shop. bluebatmobile.com, check out Andy's website, plus my photos. I have seen them on a black WRX and the look real good.

    I was assuming you have a hatchback? If you have the sedan, then the lights already look good.

    would like to see pic of overlays. I keep debating on whether or not I should do this or possibly just have them painted.
