    Hey there - Welcome!

    Congrats on the purchase... Pictures?

    There's lots of good info around the forum here, all you need is a little (or a lot) of time to look around and read up on what to do, if applicable, and what not to do. If you're thinking about going right into exhausts and intakes, make sure you're aware of the necessary tune that you'll need to match. Don't run out and grab the first cold air that you find and throw it on... Your car will not be pleased...

    Obviously, the warranty can be an issue if you go mod-heavy right off the start - However, not always. Depends on the dealership, what exactly you do, and if you are willing to "go back to stock" if you ever have to bring it in for service - Again, reading around about others' experiences will help you form your own opinions.

    Take your time, enjoy the car, and don't be afraid to ask [specific] questions - Lots of knowledgeable owners on here. Take care of your WRX and she'll take care of you!

ID:	115777 thanks for the reply, I'm not trying to get too crazy because of the warranty issue but from what I understand bolt ons are ok. I was thinking an exhaust first but I will certainly do the research before I just throw anyone on. Thanks again

    Looks nice!

    Yea I hear ya, that way you can get that nice rumble outta her. See if there are any meets near you? That way you can hear some different exhausts in person... youtube is a start, but doesn't always do it justice...

    Good luck and have fun!

    Welcome! Google searches will usually help you find forum answers. People can get touchy if you start threads that have been discussed many times.
