    First WRX! '08 Hatch

    I've been lurking around for a little while guy now I figure it's time to say hi New to to Subarus (I come as a FWD Volvo guy), picked it up last night, '08 Hatch with 42k. I'd had the pleasure of driving a Bugeye STI and a '13 WRX, loved them, and the '08 came at just the right time, with the right price and mileage. Car is pretty much spotless and runs great. Looks like we have snow coming tomorrow as well!

    Three things on my list-
    Stock Radio isn't that great and doesn't have bluetooth. I've got a Pioneer AVH-P3400BH that'll be here tomorrow, planning on sorting that one out myself!
    Gotta get my V1 wired up! Gonna hardwire it with the remote display but not sure where to put it yet. All that gear is on it's way.
    I'll try to be polite here, but the stock shifter reminds me of a late-90s Camry 5-speed. Have my eye on a short shifter, any suggestions?

    Glad to be here, I think it'll be fun

    This is the only photo I've got so far, sorry shot it in almost total darkness,.. I'll post some more to the Photo forum when I get a chance. Photography is a big hobby of mine!

    Never argue with idiots. They'll drag you to their level and beat you with experience.

    First WRX! '08 Hatch

    Welcome, congrats.

    There are several shifters, including Subaru and Kartboy.

    One thing to do is to go to a local meet and talk to other owners, maybe ask to shift their car while it's off to get a feel for the choices out there.

    The photography forum has been lively lately, and more shots would be great.

    See the link in my signature for info on the cars if you like.
