Hey guys, some of you may have seen my post in the Car Purchasing forum. I just ordered a base WRX hatch in WR Blue with exhaust finishers and boost gauge. I think I got a pretty good deal (though I certainly could have payed less) of $26,000, $300 over invoice. There is a bit of a shortage of these cars in my area, and the price falls right in between Truecar and Edmunds, so I am satisfied.
I plan on keeping the car fairly stock, at least until the warranty ends. It will be my DD, leaving my 1978 280z for weekends/sunny days. One change that I do plan on making is putting some 16 inch steelies with winter tires on for the winter. I am also considering a Cobb STS with bushings and maybe a catback, but it will be a while until I get the funds for those goodies; probably next summer. There is also a thought of getting a roof bike rack, but I want to see just how much biking I actually do this summer before I plunk down the cash for that.
The one thing that I think I will add as soon as I can are some Rally Armor mud flaps. I am kind of toying with the idea of getting the red ones, but I can't decide if they would look tremendous or horrendous with the blue car (I love the look of the red on white, so I figure it might look cool as well).
Any thoughts or suggestions would be highly appreciated, and I promise to post pics once I get the car!
