    My first car!! MY Subie!

    Hey guys, I'm new to this forum, just call me Chief. I bought my Subaru a few months ago and I'm finally looking into making some changes, as you can tell by the pic it's stock with a lot of potential. So I will be posting a few questions on what to buy and maybe even make some trades.

    Congrats! Welcome to the club!

    Any idea what upgrades want to do first? Performance, sound, interior, exterior?

    Honestly mainly exterior for right now, looking to either trade or purchase a spoiler for my stock trunk, and a hood scoop. I'm not too much of a fan of the WRX and STI spoilers simply because I'm not into the racing right now so it does not serve a real purpose for me other than looks. By the end of the year I should have it looking the way I want it, and I'll go from there.

    I'm not personally a fan of the STi wings, but the WRX wings are nice.

    Good luck! You'll eventually get bit by the mod bug!

    I am sure you can find it cheaper but this is a nice simple spoiler.

    Welcome

    I would urge you to reconsider adding a hood scoop to your vehicle.

    The 2.5i hoods are so clean! Don't add a scoop.

    I'd recommend a nice set of wheels, tasteful drop, 04/05 taillights and a front lip. Wingless and scoop less should stay.

    Yeah, I hope you realize that the hood scoop is actually functional on the WRX and STI since it directs air onto the intercooler. The Impreza isn't turbocharged, so no intercooler.

    Congrats on the purchase though, the car looks great!
