    Hello,
    I just got my first Subaru. It is a 2012 WRX 5-door, does any one have any suggestions for simple cheap mods.

    Cobb AP, intake, downpipe (catted) and catback, and get a turbosmart re-circulating valve as the stock plastic ones like to leak boost.

    Screw the mods take some parking classes . Depends on which way you want to go for mods power/handling/looks. One cheap simple one is the red over lays for the rear tail lights. Swaybars and end links is another way to go. And of course access port or open source tune with down pipe. Congrats on the car by the way.

    So many mods you can do.. performance/suspension/visual I'd personally start off with a short throw cobb intake and downpipe with a tune. For suspension I'd do sways and coilovers and visual mods is personal preference really. Anyway welcome to the club.
