    WRX Limited finally arrived!

    Well, I finally finally! got my WRX limited in last week and have been breaking it in over the past few days. I ordered it September 26 and finally got it on Jan 3rd. What a wait! I got it with the SPT exhaust, short throw, and homelink mirror. So far I must say I love the car overall.

    Pros are that it is quick! Way faster than I expected, even after I test drove one. Since I'm still breaking it in I don't even know the extents of this thing yet but I can imagine they are farther than I expect. The body and interior are flawless I'd say, everyone that has seen it has said it is just stunning and I agree. Also I know the SPT exhaust doesn't really do anything for power, but the sound is incredible. I think it sounds better than my 300zx with a full custom exhaust, well at least as good.

    Cons: I have 2. First the audio system is pretty horrible. Any suggestions there? I was thinking of throwing a small sub in the trunk, or maybe even the subaru / kicker that is an option when ordering. Either way its not a big deal because the rumble of that engine is entertaining enough. Second, I live in Wisconsin so I bought a spare set of wheels / snow tires for it only to find that I have to take it to the dealer to reprogram the TPMS every time I swap them out! So that's too bad, but oh well, I still love it and am very happy with my purchase.

    Anyway, I'm proud to own this beauty and its my 1st Subaru!!

    Congrats!

    Though I don't have direct experience yet, when I get around to upgrading audio my first stop will be the head unit. From what many others have said, the stock speakers are better than terrible if given a better power source.

    I just live with my tpms light being on when my winters are on. No way am I paying either every time I swap them, or the larger amount to buy 4 new sensors for my second set of wheels. I ignore the dash light and keep an eye on my pressure the old fashioned way.

    Well it might make more sense to do an aftermarket, but I didn't want to mess around with that. Either way it doesn't really provide any power up. But I love the sound. It's a very low tone growl, and sounds super mean upon start up!
