    Cool Newbie here!

    Hello fellow WRXers

    Just picked up my first WRX on Saturday, and I am quite pleased with it. This is my 3rd Subaru, and I think at one point I swore no more Subie's after all the check engine light issues I experienced, but here I am, happy to be back in the pool. So far the water is fine

    I chose the WRX because I was looking for something that will be fun to drive, AWD, look like a sleeper and compliment my "summer" car (MR2 Spyder). I looked at the Golf R, the Audi A3 and the Acura TSX sport wagon before deciding on the WRX.

    I love the sound of the car, and when the turbo kicks in, it just makes me smile

    I may mod it down the road, nothing too crazy, but I would like to increase the rumble just a tad, and upgrade the receiver head unit to NAV.

    Looking forward to learning all the nuances of this car, and I just know that I will learn alot from you all here

    Kathy

    Here are a few photos of my cars. I traded the Honda Insight for the WRX. I dont have any pics of previous two subies. First one was a 1998 Legacy Outback, second one was a 2005 Outback Limited. Both were used as my "winter" car.

    just picked the car up two days ago, was too busy driving it to take pictures of it besides the one at the dealership. It was crazy raining when I drove it out of the dealership, took it on the highway with standing water and you would have thought I was on dry pavement, and let's just say I wasn't driving slowly
