I joined a while ago and have been waiting on my WRX for months and yesterday the day finally came. Got the car with 6 miles on it and having a hard time waiting to get past these first thousand miles!
I am coming from the Acura/Honda world and this was what I drove before my Scoob.
I had a lot of fun with the RSX and it was a good car until the end. I did have to pour a lot of money into it at the end though. Killed the motor and blew out 3rd gear in 6 months and costs me a lot of future montly payments on the Subaru. But sold it and time to move on to my new toy!
I have to say that I am really impressed with the power of the car. I have not revved it past 4k but I can already tell there is a lot more power and trq to play with. Also the car really is planted and holds corners really well. I went up a part of a canyon rode and smoothly went through the corners and the car could hold much better than I expected. And I dont know about others but I came from a car that was bouncy, stiff, and harsh that also had motor mounts that vibrated the car, heavy duty clutch and lightweight flywheel, and a pretty loud exhaust.... SO this car is a huge upgrade in comfort for me even though it really isnt that comfortable haha.
And I know the pictures are sideways and I tried to fix that in Photobucket but am having no luck. Anyone wanna educate me on how to fix this?
Anyway I already ordered IAG Tailight overlays and am getting a clear bro and 35% tints done this weekend. From there I am ordering a Kartboy SS with Bushings and sourcing an Invidia Q300 exhaust. Also doing some other minor cosmetic stuff as time goes on. I have to be slow with the mods as this was already a big push to get my wife to even let me buy the car.... You know how that goes
