    New to the site! Just bought an 06 STi 2 days ago!

    Hey everyone! I'm from the MD area and just traded in my 04 wrx for an 06 STi. The car was already modded so I purchased the platinum warranty that covers everything including the motor. I have been wanting one for 6 years and finally did it!! I never realized how fast these cars were but its the most amazing thing to drive. Its lowered with springs and making a clunk sound from the rear which is prob the strut problem I'm looking to purchase a set of full coil overs to replace this, does anyone have some suggestions? Its fairly stock except for a 3 inch turbo back SRS exhaust. I was looking at getting the Cobb accessport, how much power will this give me from just an exhaust? Is it safe? I had one on my old wrx stage 2 and was great for a while but started noticing strange things happen and the car would run funny.. Look forward to chatting with everyone!
