    New to Subaru, PA

    Hello All!

    Nice forum! Just picked up an 05 WRB WRX with 75k. Hope to learn a lot and be an active member of the forum. Cheers!

    Onto the pictures:




    (I come from the VW world, that's my other toy in background)

    Car is pretty stock, but does have a few problems.

    1. Gauge Cluster lights-some are dimmer than others and the odometer doesn't light up. Any DIY's about this?
    2. IACV-Car stalls when coming to a stop if I push in clutch quick, pretty sure its IACV waiting for gasket from dealer so I can clean it out.
    3. Hesitation-Really noticeable around 3500-4500 rpm, sometimes it feels like it hiccups and then starts pulling again.(Think it needs new plugs,wires. Didn't find any sort of boost leak.)

    And a few of us folks from up north too, let's not forget! PA as a whole has a lot of subs. Where about's in reading, if you don't feel uncomfortable with that information? I'm fairly familiar with reading and it's suburbs, I used to date a girl from down there.

    Welcome to the forum, nice ride, and always remember that the search function is your friend : )

    I'm from Mt.Penn area of reading. But I'm in West Reading/Wyomissing area all the time.

    Thanks for the warm welcome!

    Anyone know of any Subaru GTG's in the area?

    Calvinball- I went to highschool with Taylor. She's was a year or two below me, spoke to her a few times before was mega famous, haha

    I would be up for a gtg of the sort. Is there regional forums? Maybe we could get a group together. I know the VW crowd always has gtg's, and they tend to be a great time waster.

    Keep an eye out for the Victory meet that happens about 4 times a year. You guys missed this one, but there should be one coming up sometime in May. Its a great time. May is going to be the 6th anniversary. The first page as all the info on it.

    Winter 2012 Victory Meet is on for March 3 2012!
