    New to the forum and new to cars

    Hi my name is Ryan and I just got a semi new, used 5,000 miles, 2011 silver WRX sedan. This is my first new car, my whole life I had POS due to being in college. I have always wanted a AWD car due to my life style- outdoors person who loves to drive other people's WRX. Now that I have my own I know I have to start gaining knowledge, so if you see me asking really dumb questions please be cool. Complete newbie when it comes to cars.

    Also poster in Engine Modifications, sorry for the redundancy.

    Bought the Cobb SS and the Cobb bushings. I'm getting an extra $1300 and I was wondering if i could get some advice from you awesome people. Reading through this forum it looks like the next step is to buy.

    Subaru SS 3" Downpipe

    COBB Tuning - Subaru AccessPORT

    I already have the SPT exhaust and a Lo-Jack installed

    Does that sound about right? If so, is there better deals where I can buy these parts together?

    It could have been in ontario, Ca of subaru. It got shipped from carmax by Duarte, Ca to sacramento. Getting the lo-jack was so expensive, but I think it was worth it since I am going to mod the . Potty Mouth .. Potty Mouth .. Potty Mouth .. Potty Mouth . out of this thing.
