    New owner of a 2013 SWP WRX Sedan!

    Hey everyone! My name is Tony and on October 7th, 2012, I purchased my very first Subaru, a 2013 SWP WRX Sedan!
    Well, here's a little bit about me:
    I've loved cars and motor cycles since I was a child, my love and passion has stayed with me throughout all the years. I am a service technician at Cadillac, 20 years old, and live in Texas, the DFW area. For several years I've dreamed of owning a WRX, and finally I had an opportunity to purchase one! I have a ton of plans for my WRX, and can't wait to see my project and dream come to life!

    The Car:
    2013 SWP WRX

    I can relate to your story here.... I have actually dreamed about owning a WRX since they first came out back in 2002 but then in 2006 I got an opportunity to buy my original dream car. A mint condition 2000 Acura Integra Type R with 45k miles! It wasn't until recently that I decided to move on so naturally WRX was an obvious and easy choice.

    Thanks everyone!

    My favorite view has got to be the front, it just looks so aggressive!
    And no, no spoiler yet. Still deciding on if I want an STI wing on a CF oem WRX spoiler.

    Yeah, I ran wingless for 3-4 months before caving in and going with the OEM WRX spoiler.

    Never seen a CF OEM one, any pics?

    Congrats.... I also just picked up a 2013 silver 5 door last thursday and just passed 200 miles, but i do have a question about the gas mileage. I have 214 miles on the car and it burned through the tank of gas (never went over 3300 RMP)

    Any suggestions ? or advice or make a new thread ?

    Thanks,

    I picked up my new 2013 WRX Premium on 11/2/12

    Drove it for 315 miles before the Fuel light came on and filled it up ASAP.

    During 'break in'...after a hundred or so miles, did some spirited runs in 2nd through 5th, running up to 4000-4500 RPMs

    When coming to a stop light or seeing upcoming traffic, I never down shift through the gears to slow down, just pop it into Neutral and coast and/or apply the brakes slightly as needed

    Now at 458 miles, shows last average MPG at 23.1 (the highest I've seen so far, though I really don't trust that computer reading). Mostly highway driving.

    Apologize for off topic questions:

    What is the lowest RPM in 2nd through 5th, you fellow WRX owners, constantly run at?
    What major gasoline brand sells 91 Octane as I usually hit the local Gulf stations that have the lower prices and they don't offer 91

    Thanks in advance
