    WRX on the way

    Went to the dealer this afternoon, signed a few papers put some money down and now I am waiting for my WRX to be built. Here is to hoping I can sell my car and time it well so the dealer doesn't screw me on the trade.

    Any advise, anything I should do to the car? It's going to be pearl blue.

    Can't wait for it to get here.

    Congrats bro...... First thing would be to get your hands on it. Find that you like it then talk about mods.

    But to answer the question, engine mangement has got to be first IMO.

    Congrats!

    My advice is always to drive the car for a bit, then decide what you think needs to be improved. For some it's the need for power, for some the handling, for some the stereo, etc.

    Congrats on the car! and yea what calvin said drive it before you decide to change it. However from the way i like to drive sway bar and end links are coming up on my things to purchase along with coilovers.
    I have already purchased a new exhaust, rally armor mudflaps, and some OEM parts ^^ planning on waiting on the cobb just for a bit to let my finances get in order :P

    Thanks guys. One thing that I miss from the older models was the blow off valve that they toned way down. Any incite on doing something about that? This is all very new to me. Is that something worth changing and if so, what needs to be done?

    Chances are youre going to be waiting for about 4 months to get the car. Should be plenty of time to get rid of your car.

    Depends on the location. I walk into the dealer and got mine this same day.

    Yeah they told me 6-8 weeks, now just waiting for the dealer to call with the VIN and eta. Thinking that call will come first week of feb. I bypassed the whole waiting for a dealer to get a car game so much easier to order it.

    WRX on the way

    I could be mistaken but I've been around a few that had a noticeable bov, however I never asked if it was stock and it was a profound sound of the blowing off.
