    Hello!

    I have recently made the wise decision to purchase a 2009 WRX sedan 265

    I love the car and will have photos up shortly.

    I need some advice....Its bone stock and I would love to mod it up a bit. Im already thinking a short throw and some kind of exhaust kit (I love the stage 2 Cobb ive seen on YouTube, but its a bit pricey right now).

    Any suggestions as to what i should start with? Im on somewhat a budget but over time will be able to put some decent money into the beast.

    THANKS for all your help!!!

    Yes, the COBB is a bit pricey compared to others. However, the quality is just amazing. If fit perfect with no need for modification - some folks on here have bought DPs from other vendors and find that the DP doesn't exactly make it all the way to the midpipe - or is too long so they have to cut it.

    For my 07, I bought the COBB DP and AP - all together was $1200. I didn't think that was too bad at all given how much performance it gave me. I saved by not buying the catback - which was fine with me since it doesn't gain you anything. Also, the resale on COBB was very high - I was able to get $1000 of the $1200 back when I returned the car to stock and sold the parts on craigslist.
