    New to the club...

    Hey guys,

    Just picked up my 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX Premium DGM on 11/9/2012. Can't say I've been happier with a car. I was looking at Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicons and the Subaru BRZ/Scion FR-S and didn't like the BRZ (too small). I didn't even get to test drive the Jeep because after test driving a WRX I was in love... lol.

    Anyway, as for features included with my car, I've got the Premium trim (still cloth interior, but it has a moonroof, fog lights, heated seats, etc). It also came with the STI short-throw shifter, auto-dimming compass rearview mirror, blue footwell illumination package, all-weather mats, and a sunshade.

    A little about me: I'm active duty Navy stationed on the USS Vicksburg (CG-69). I'm a Fire Controlman 2nd Class and work as an Aegis Computer technician. I just got back from my first deployment 11/5/2012 (8 months is a LONG time).

    I've already ordered my first mod; I'm going to install a 2 gauge cluster that matches the factory look and goes right over the speedometer/tachometer. It will have oil pressure and boost pressure gauges installed.

    In the future I plan to do either the AEM or COBB CAI, get the SPT/STI exhaust installed by the dealership, and get a COBB Accessport to flash my ECU, as well as other mods.

    Here she is:

    Welcome

    Consider buying the exhaust used and DIY install. A catback is a pretty simple job with basic tools (few bolts and exhaust hangers), and both of those together could save you $300+.
