    My First Subaru!

    Yesterday I decided to trade in my 07' Mustang GT for an 05 Subaru WRX. It has 101k Miles and from what I can tell, looks completely stock. Within these past 24 hours having the car, I've realized that I will have a tremendous amount of fun with this car. I haven't taken any pictures yet, but as soon as I do, I will post them here!

    What kind of exterior/interior mods are you looking to do?

    With exhaust, there are vendors on this forum that you can get good deals from, or just find out what you want and do a google shopping lookup.

    I'm wanting to do exhaust for sure, just not sure what brand is decent. For interior, I'm wanting like shift knob, floor mats, steering wheel things like that.

    GTSpec does pretty nice looking steering wheels. Interior brake/boot/other material coverings - take a look at JPM Coachworks, they are great quality and can do pretty much anything over mail. You can google search for cheaper stuff though. Shift knobs...A lot of people get COBB aftermarket knobs, or any other aftermarket brand sells them (Perrin, etc). You can also get custom ones from Latheworks. Floor mats can be had pretty much anywhere, but if you are looking for subaru ones, a search through a local subaru dealerships website for accessories will return the subaru ones that are designed to fit perfectly with the factory floor mat holder pins. Also, don't forget to search the vendors on this website!

    Most brands of exhaust you would probably be ok to go with...All personal preference, and best bet is to go to a local meet and listen in person. A lot of people like nameless/invidia on here.

    05 with 101k? yeh, let the mods begin...

    and yeh hit up a meet where there will be plenty of modded soobies, ask the owner what they think about their mods and go from there.
    You might want to ask about a tune as well. I'm doing the Open source thing. Got a Tactrix cable and all that. It isn't all that hard, just alot of homework/research with some trial and error on the execution.
    If you mod intake you'll definitely need a tune, exhaust you probably will need one. I've got an 02 and it's pretty forgiving as far as the tuning, 04s and later are more finicky.
