    New Girl from SW MO

    Hi All, We ordered our New 2012 Subaru WRX Limited (Satin White) on Dec 1. On Feb 17 we received a call..."It's here", and Feb 20 we went to pick it up.
    OMG...I have to pinch my self that it is really here. This is Subaru #8 that we have owned since the 1980's.
    I previously has a 2008 Mazdaspeed 3. What a difference! I can't wait until I have it properly broke in. Solo season is fast approaching.

    The only thing I don't like are the tires...very noisy. We thought about getting a set of Continentals for it, but were wonder it there were better options.

    I just put some Nitto NeoGens on mine. No noise. Maybe you can try those. Congrats on the purchase.

    Congrats on the new car- I put Continental DWS tires on mine and have been happy with them, the ride is very quiet at all speeds, but then again I never really thought the stock ones were noisy (only had them on for about a month though)

    We only had one day with some good snow on the ground up here since I put them on in November, they handled pretty well though- obviously not as good as running a separate set of snows but if you are going all-season they are more than capable.
