I just ordered a 2012 SWP WRX 5 door! The only option I got was the SSK factory installed. I'm pretty excited so I figured I'd join the community over here and learn all about the car before it arrives. I've never had a JDM car before. I absolutely love the car as I'm pretty performance oriented. As far as mods go I'm going to be installing the magnaflow CBE after I pick it up - other than that I think I'll probably be leaving it stock until I break it in and get used to driving a manual... People seem to complain about the transmission but I've actually never driven a manual before and when I test drove it the salesperson thought I was trolling because all my shifts were perfect and I didn't stall once.
It's going to be a long 5-6 weeks for me .
