    Just another new guy!

    Hello everyone, I just pick up my first subaru about two days ago. I love it!!!!

    As for now, no plans for mods besides a sti spoiler and replacing the rotors with drilled slotted rotors.

    Welcome!

    Your car already is modified. You might want to find out from the previous owner what was done to make sure it was done correctly.

    Yes it is. The previous owner told me he put an exhaust system in. Grimmspeed I believe. Cold air intake. He also had it tuned and rebuilt stock turbo. But I'll make sure to ask more questions. Thanks for letting me know.

    Gotcha, that sounds good! Any idea who tuned it?

    I actually don't know who tuned it. I ask the previous owner, all he said was his mechanic tuned it for him. He gave me a name but he said the guy is hard to reach at. So far the car haven't gave me any problems. Knock on wood.

    Welcome. What part of Wisconsin are you from? I've covered a good bit of that state over the years.

    If you're looking to upgrade your brakes, I'd start with replacing the pads and fluid, and maybe adding SS lines and a master cylinder brace. If the rotors need to be replaced, most people here will recommend the standard Centric Premium rotor. Drilled and slotted rotors don't have a lot of benefits on street cars, but they do look nice. So, if you're just after the aesthetics and don't mind the price premium, then go for it.

    Also, do you know what wing is currently on the car? That's not one that I've seen before.

    Thanks for the tip. My pads are still okay but the brake fluid I'll definitely change. As for the rotors I'm most likely going with the drilled slotted rotors because of its looks. I don't know what the wing on the car is. I'll be more than happy to contact the previous owner if you like? I don't really like the wing that's on it though. haha
