Just placed an order for a SWP WRX hatch, limited package. Coming from an '02 Audi A4 quattro, that I babied for the past 10 years, until it was totaled in an ugly accident last month. Now that I've taken 3 weeks to grieve, I pulled the trigger on the WRX this morning. I've loved subies since the bug-eye generation, and very happy to get into a new WRX hatch.
Ordered with a few extras to satisfy my mod bug for the time being, STI short throw was thrown in for free, cargo net, Sirius radio, homelink mirror.
Maybe you guys could answer a few questions i have
whats the regular "Break-in period"? 500-1,000 miles of coddled driving?
What coil over kit is popular (under $900 i hope)
any exhaust recommendations? something just a tad louder/throatier than stock. axel back most likely not looking for any crazy power gains)
Looking at a set of rota grids with a nice deep concave whats the lowest offset this car can hold on lowered suspension?
