On Saturday I bit the bullet and bought a crystal black silica 2014 WRX Limited 5-door with short-throw shift. A couple hundred miles later, she's already been washed and waxed once and I'm starting to plan some very basic mods. Definitely going to tint the windows and stick a rear bumper protector on so my dogs don't gouge the paint. Also, as I live in a pretty arid region where spring and fall windstorms cause massive tumbleweed migrations across the freeways, I need to get a lower grill to protect the radiator. So far I've only seen one brand, and they make matching lower, upper, and hood scoop grills, so I'll probably go that route and hope it doesn't make me look like a teenager. If I do go with all three of those, I'll probably also upgrade to the Hella horns while doing the upper grill. Also, I need to get some all weather tires within the next 6-8 weeks, preferably on the cheap but not too loud end of the spectrum. I wouldn't mind improving the exhaust note a bit, but definitely do NOT want anything obnoxiously loud.
Anyhow, just thought I'd say hi. Very much enjoying my new ride at this point.
