    Newbie in the DC Metro Area

    Welp, I finally did it. I've wanted a WRX for the better part of the last decade and this past weekend I finally took the plunge and went to the lot. Mine is a 2013 WRX in dark gray (cant remember what the factory name of the color is) with the SPT exhaust, short throw shifter, and a Perrin rear sway bar....so far. I've been lurking around these forums for a few months, researching and just gathering information, so thanks for helping me out already! I look forward to learning from and chatting with all you lovely WRX owners. Mod suggestions, advice, and the like are all welcome and appreciated. Any DC area members feel free to hit me up for meet ups, ride alongs, etc. And to answer the inevitable questions on my handle; no my name isn't Ryan, and NO I'm not a Jets fan . My buddy came up with the name as a nickname for my car and it just kinda stuck. Here's a few shots of my new baby.

    I live in Falls Church VA and work in Bethesda MD. Most likely moving to Arlington in the next few months though.

    Yeah the commute both ways Isn't too bad. I go to work early and get off before evening rush hour so I'm fortunate to avoid peak hours on the beltway.

    I've got buddies out in Herndon; I'll give you a shout next time I'm headed out that way. If your ever around Falls Church don't hesitate to hit me up as well.
