    4th Subaru in total, 1st Subaru in the US

    Hi everyone! Just 3 months ago I bought a new 2011 WRX sedan here in Ohio. I have been a Subaru owner since 2003 back in Japan, started from Forester Cross Sports (SG5, EJ20 with turbo) , then BL5 (Legacy 2.0GT Spec.B) and BP9 (Legacy S402). After my relocation to the US, I was still eager to drive AWD with boxer turbo, so ended up buying WRX. Recently I started doing a few modifications to the car and I enjoy it as I lived in Japan.

    Good that I found this forum to exchange information. Also hope to get to know other WRX guys around the area I live!

    How does the American version hold up compared to those lovely JDM's? lol

    I wish we could get some of the options Japan gets, like the Spec-C STi's!!

    I wish I could bring my last girl (S402) here to the US! I don't know why Subaru does not release some of the awesome models such as Impreza S206 or Spec-C...

    The most obvious mod is the 18'' wheels from Japan (Work Meister S1), fitted with Continental Winter tires :-) It's a forged alloy, lighter than the stock 17'' wheel and I guess I will get 18'' summer tires after this winter season. I've started with small mods such as blow-off valve, K&N performance air filter and AVO stabilizer links. They are small mods, but make quite a difference from the stock!

    Being your 4th Subaru, I would have figured you'd know by this point that these mods will hurt your performance more than help...

    It may hurt the performance but they do give the car a mean sound... Perhaps a tune to take advantage of the better breathing? PS.. That wagon looks beast.
