    My 2013 WRX - WRB Hatch

    Hey guys,

    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

    From your home screen (while logged in), click "View Library," then select the picture you'd like to rotate. On the new page that opens, there will be an "Option" button near the top of the screen. Click it an select "rotate left" or right.

    Welcome to ClubWRX, great looking car.

    That's operator error, I just did it in both operating systems and it works fine.

    jesus christ I cant even come on the NET without getting my eyes blinded by a honda/acura with Overkill HIDS...

    Welcome to the other side! You are going to love owning your former brothers - i.e. letting that turbo KICK in when the CIVIC/INTEGRA is SHIFTING!

    Congrats, love the WRX hatch. Just picked up a silver 2013 hatch myself on Wednesday of last week. Love the hatches exhaust/look from the rear. The tint does seem necessary - doing it tomorrow but not sure which way I am going.

    Manual??? Enjoy the car, right in time for the spring!
