    I just joined the club, pics inside

    Hello all, I am Mike. I figured I would sign up and pick some brains a bit, glad to be a part of the community.

    Well, finally broke down and bought a car I have always wanted. Traded in my 2011 Honda Civic SI, holy crap what a difference! I ended up with a basic 2014 WRX, best thing is it only cost me about $26 more per month then the Civic did. Here are some bad pictures but I am sure you guys all know what you are looking at.

    Btw, what a crappy stereo these cars are equipped with from the factory. This car had the factory sub under the seat. sounds like my daughter playing with a coffee can with a few nuts and bolts in it. The stock stereo has to go, will change it out with nothing to crazy, going for classy good sounding stuff.

    Check out the YouTube video on how to get a little better sound quality on the oem system via a hidden menu first. You might be surprised by the difference!

    Welcome and congrats! One more in the long line of folks that come from K-series hondas to WRXs.

    As miggs mentioned, google "hidden menu wrx stereo" and mess around with the built in EQ settings. It doesn't make it into a great stereo but it might serve as a stopgap til you can replace what you want to.

    Thank all of you guys for the welcoming words, it is greatly appreciated.

    This WRX is such a different animal then the Civic, more power, night and day difference when it comes to handling. I can't wait to break it in and see what it can really do. I did a few pulls on another WRX that I test drove so I have an idea, should be a blast to drive.

    ^This. It made the stereo go from horrible, to almost 'OK'.

    Played with the hidden menu a bit, made it better but not good enough . I got spoiled with the stereo I had in the civic (alpine ine-9200hd head unit, Audison sr4, Audison sr1k, CDT components front, CDT coax rear, and 12" alpine type r). I ripped all of that stuff out in the dealership parking lot. I thought about installing all of that stuff but I really want to avoid molesting this car.

    Car is going in for window tint in the morning.
