    Newb - 135 miles on the ODO

    Just signed up after picking up my first Subaru on Friday. I've always wanted a WRX, and after some convincing from my wife to treat myself I took home a WR Blue Pearl base model with short shifter, homelink and rear cup holders. It was the only blue one on the lot and while buying it 3 other people came into buy it. I couldn't be happier with Irvine Subaru, and I got a fair deal on the price of the car although they raked me over the coals a bit on my trade-in (as expected).

    I'm breaking her in slowly, and am planing mods for the future. I plan to install an exhaust, ecu, waste-gate, bpv, intake(not sure on the pros and cons on a wrx yet), wheels, tint, coil overs, strut braces and sway bars. It will take a while as I have a backyard to landscape that will be sucking up a lot of my play cash.

    Anyway, I'm looking forward into learning from everyone here.

    Welcome man! If I catch you around here you better wave man back! Assuming you reside in South OC.

    I'm the kid in the dirtiest silver Blobeye wagon ever, waving out my window.

    Congrats on the car man =)

    Aww man, that's gotta be super unfortunate to have to be riding around all day on sportbikes at Laguna Seca and be getting paid for it. Lol.

    Yeah, it's not the worst problem to have, but I ride all the time. I'd rather go to Subiefest...

    Ohh. So you're the one who bought that car....

    Did they (Irvine Subaru) give you invoice? above? below? or charge you MSRP?
