Hi there! I have about 1600 miles on my new 2013 WRX Premium WRB 5-door. Babied it for the first 1k, it's been great getting over that 1k mark and being able to have fun with some pulls! I have wanted a WRX for about 10 years, since I first started driving, and finally bit the bullet and got myself one. I had first driven the BRZ because of the sporty feel, but it just didn't come close to a rex. I live in the Northwest, so I have to deal with winters as well, making the rex an obvious choice.
I'm planning on leaving it mostly stock throughout my warranty. Mainly just visual improvements for now. I have painted my tails with nightshade red, de-badged rear+front grill, plasti-dip'd my wheels/side logos. I had 15% Ceramic tint put on.
My future to do list:
Wheels & Tires in spring. (Winter is pretty soon, I plan on getting winter tires put on my stock rims and keeping them as winter rims/tires)
Replacement mesh grille without emblem
Mudflaps. I'm thinking the rallyarmors in black with the blue matching "rallyarmor" logo.
The performance mods will come later, I really want to just stick with the warranty until it expires. I might also wait to do a full exhaust system and just do a TBE with a tune. I really enjoy the sound of the muffler delete on the wrx. I unbolted it today and listened, to my surprise it was quite nice (IMO!). I would invest into an Axleback but I don't think it's worth it because I want to just replace the whole system at some point. I may just get a shop to make me a pipe for the delete. What are your opinions on this?
