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.
