    Hello Everyone! New owner here!!!

    Hello everyone! Im JD and I recently sold my s2000, ordered a WRX Limited on 2/13/12 and took delivery on 3/18/12
    Currently am enjoying the new car, and my only complaint is the transmission. I hate it. Other than that, nice to meet you all and hope you enjoy these pics!

    the shifter bushings will make the shifter feel much better. I know you spent good money on the short shifter, but youd of spent better money on the kartboy sts.. welcome.

    I was thinking about getting that. You recommend kartboy over spt? and also, how much would installation cost? btw, its hard to put the car in reverse (ie. during a 3 point turn) I hope this isnt normal?

    At this point since the spt is there, I would just spend money on bushings for the shifter. It will feel better after its broken in also.

    Getting the car into reverse is a ***** regardless of what shifter set you have. If the car has been parked on the e brake I just let it roll a tad bit or sync up the gears by going forward a little bit in first then going to reverse.

    +1 on the breaking in, I didn't like the feel of going into ANY gear, and now it is much much better (still going to get a sts and bushings though) after just 1000 miles. Reverse is still a pain, but slowly getting better. Just takes longer to break in since I rarely reverse.

    Good judgement comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgement.
