    New from Mercer Island, WA

    Hi,

    I'm new here, and new to Subaru too. I bought a 2011 STI Limited OBP ten days ago. My first order of business is de-wing the trunk (which is how I discovered ClubWRX) and then learn from forum members as I get a plan together for performance improvements.

    Before picking the STI, I was looking at a 2007 Audi RS4, an '07 Audi S6 and a 2010 Legacy GT. My main buying criteria were a decent power-to-weight ratio, awd and manual (the S6 had a beast of an engine but the slushbox was a deal-killer). I'm enjoying getting to know the STI and my first goal is to make it a bit more of a q-ship.

    I'm debating between trying to find someone to do a trunk swap (don't seem to be a lot of 2011 WRX folks in Puget Sound looking to off-load a trunk) and just buying a replacment trunk. Welcome talking to everyone and if you're local to Seattle and have some experience with de-winging the STI (vendors, tips, etc) I'd be grateful for your advice.

    Cheers.

    Welcome and congrats on the new subie. There is a meet that happens at the landing parking garage (top floor if no rain, third floor if it is) in Renton every Thursday at around 7:30pm. Might find a few good ideas about some of the projects you might have in mind.

    Hi and thanks for the suggestion. The meet-ups are every week? I'm out of town for the next three Thursdays but will certainly come to the meeting in November.

    Cheers, MercerTransit

    Resident Clubdub Debbie Downer. I'd love your ideas if you kept them to yourself. Subarus suck, get a new wife.

    Never argue with idiots. They'll drag you to their level and beat you with experience.
