well plans are as follows lol 1st my wife's been pregnant the last 8 months so getting anything extra for the car is out of the question at this moment because just convincing her that I needed a 4 door and I wanted the WRX was a stretch, but after we get things squared away with the baby and I see what money I have (If any extra) I will be going with the Cobb AP prop just do stage one for now, then move onto stage 2 later down the road. I did however have a question for everyone, im new to subarus and WRX in general, I was told by my dealer theres 1000 mile break in period and to do nothing over 4000rpm, Is there any truth to that, I dont mind it its only 1k but just never got to really get on one yet and I know the turbo really doesnt kick in till after 3000rpms lol
The break-in is a highly controversial subject. Many recommend following dealer instructions, many recommend a hard break-in. Up to you. The big thing is to vary RPMs (pretend you don't have cruise control until break-in is over) and put the engine under some load (to help the piston rings seal).

thanks EJ, So which do most poeple on the Forum prefer? Hard or Soft break in?
To me personal preference has no place here. Read the manual & do accordingly.

Ooh,hang on. That is the throb of a turbocharged flat four engine. A sound which,all over the world,heralds the imminent arrival of a moron - JC.
I think you chose the best color, if I do say so myself!
And I'm glad to see that I'm not the only "soon to be" father that went out and bought a 2012 WRX. I picked mine up on June 1st and my wife and I are expecting our first child on September 21st. So far I've been in the same boat as you, keeping the mods to a minimum until after the baby is born and I see what the money situation looks like. So far I've been able to upgrade the lighting, tint the windows and I squeezed in an axleback exhaust. I'm hoping to go stage 1 before the baby is born but we will have to see what happens in the next few weeks...
Either way, welcome and enjoy the WRX. I'm having a blast driving my new "family sedan". Haha!
