    Proud New Owner - 2012 WRX Hatch

    Hey guys,

    I just received my 2012 OBP WRX base model hatchback a few weeks ago and couldn't be happier with it. I live in Southeast Virginia (had to have my WRX shipped from a dealership in Massachusetts) and wanted to see how many other Virginia members we have here..? I've already seen a few (newer and older) WRX's around which was a nice surprise.

    My WRX is bone stock for now, but I'm having the SPT exhaust installed tomorrow and the windows tinted on Monday. I will post pictures/video of the before and after exhaust modification. I am fully aware that xluben has already done this, but there are a few dimensions that I would like to clarify for y'all.

    Here she is as of yet:

    They sell extremely fast everywhere, turned out to be a big hassle to find one. Word of advice, don't look for one unless you are prepared to pull the trigger that day. Otherwise, you get high hopes and end up having to settle for a different color, options, etc.
