    I'm new

    Just bought a used 2012 WRX today and I will pick it up tomorrow. I traded in my 2014 Fusion 2.0 in on it.
    This is will be my first Subaru. I have a couple older Mustangs still and I'm a gear head.
    The car has a PERRIN Quad Tip Catback Exhaust System, Enkei wheels and stock wheels with winter tires, and a cobb short throw shifter. Dealer says it does not have a tune. I'm sure that I'll be using the search button quite a bit, as I have a lot to learn about this car.

    That's a nice looking car there. Hopefully it doesn't have any mods under the hood that require a tune! (almost anything on these does) The fact that it's modded would make me concerned as to weather it does or not. Post up some engine bay pictures!

    Also, how do you like the Perrin cat back?

    I will get some pictures under the hood when I pick it up. I put a few test miles on it and the exhaust sounded great. I for sure will need some help on figuring out if it has anything else done to it. The guy that traded it in lived in the Lansing Michigan area. I asked the dealer for his # and they said by law that they can not do that. I hope I can find some local people that know a thing or two about the car to help me out.

    Congrats, great looking car! I believe I have seen that wrx before in the area. I'm from Grand Rapids (I visit Lansing a lot). Let me know if you need any help or have unanswered questions.

    I bought my WRX used in Jan of this year and it too had the PERRIN Quad Tip Catback on it...that was the only performance mod done to it and the first time I heard it in person, I was hooked!

    Fast forward a few months and add some mods...notably an INVIDIA catted downpipe. The exhaust sounds amazing now...absolutely no drone or raspyness...just that deep Subie boxer rumble.

    Congrats on the car!
