    New 2011 Wrx owner

    Hey everyone, new owner from maryland and I just bought myself a new to me 2011 wrb wrx. This is my first Subaru and first awd car. So far I am loving it. I feel the grip from the awd in every corner. The power comes on strong and its a blast to drive.

    I can't wait to start modding my wrx to make it unique to me. I bought it with a Subaru certified warranty. 7 year / 100k miles powertrain. So I am going to hold off on power mods for now.

    So far I have already ordered the Grimmspeed license plate relocation kit. And plan for mudflaps and tint soon.

    Ewwwww WRB what a horrible color Welcome and congrats on the car. Does it have any options that you know of? I say also get some plasti dip or vinyl overlay to get ride of the chrome widow trim (just my opinion)

    Thanks guys! I love this color! It doesn't have any options but I do plan to add some foglights in the future. What window trim were you talking about? I was thinking of getting black for the wrx side badge and black or blue trunk bar that's normally chrome. Vinyl overlays you say?

    For the 4dr there is chrome on the window trim you'll see it, but for the 5dr its black not sure why they did it that way but its what it is. I am not a fan I just used plasti dip on mine as well as dipping the fender badges black.

    I was not a fan of the fog lights since I hear they are not the best for the price. If i was able to get most of the parts I would try to fit my own.

    I do like the gloss black strip for the chrome on the window. Might invest in that. And find black wrx side badges. Other than that are there any other go to first mods?

    Short throw shifter, whiteline sway bars, kartboy endlinks, rotella t6 motor oil and subaru extra s tranny fluid, and a catback to hear that beautiful rumble.

    Then when youre ready to not use your warranty: Cobb Accessport or open-source, short ram intake, downpipe, heat wrap, and thermal blanket.

    I thought that any modification to exhaust would void the warranty. I wad thinking about stiffer suspension because i noticed out likes to under steer a bit. What difference does the fluid make? I did notice that the stereo system is a bit lackluster. Would just a headunit fix that? Thanks for all the replies!

    Head unit should help. I went the other route speakers first but should have probably gone with the HU.

    So you are suggesting, eventually, a complete audio replacement? What about the exhaust causing warranty problems?
