Figured id join a WRX forum instead of an STI one since I am getting a WRX. Searched far and wide for a 2012 OBP 5 door premium, and I finally found it. Put my deposit down about two weeks ago, and HOPEFULLY, I don't want to jinx it, however I know it won't be in tomorrow, it could be at the dealership tomorrow as the allocated cars are coming in now, and the dealership feels good about it coming in. Unfortunately I will be leaving for florida at the end of the week and won't be back till Easter, so if it comes in when I'm away ill die from excitement. So if the planets align, I will be headed up to Manchester, NH to pick up my new ride. Trading in my 05 Subaru Forester XT Prem, which is a great car, but its time for something new.
By joining, I hope to gain a better understanding and knowledge for potential modifications, and I guess simply the car itself. I have done plenty of research (days worth,) and I am really excited, but nothing will compare to actually owning it. Not sure I want to void any warrantees just yet, incase I want to save up for a future STI, but I'm hesitant for their 2 Liter or smaller future. If I don't have pictures up by wednesday, when I don't have class, It will have to wait till after Easter, when i get back home and can pick her up.
Learned stick on a GT500 that my dad got for us men to enjoy on the weekends, which was very intimidating LOL but proved to be a great learning tool, as it had enough hp to simply start moving without even touching the gas, i.e. good sense for clutch control. Very nervous to drive stick on a new car that I am not familiar with, but at the same am really excited to be able to develop my driving skills. Not sure to the extent of variety on these forums, but would love driving tips, like rev matching, heal toe, and other tid bits. Im turning 20 in 5 days, March 30th, so its so long to the teenage years. Anyway, really excited to be a fellow WRX owner!!!
