    "Kinda" new WRX owner!

    HELLO, SUBIE GUYS AND GIRLS! New Subaru owner and forum member here! My name is Jared. I'm 19 years old. And this is my "first" actual car. I drove my parents old volvo beater back in high school and thought it was time for me to get my own and get involved in the car community, ESPECIALLY the Subie community! I've had my car since May. It's a 2005 WRX(not STI). But I'm really just NOW driving it. Turbo blew on the trip home. got it replaced. Car still smokes when accelerating hard though. Anyways, this is just my introduction! I'll leave that problem for another thread! I just wanted to take this time to say hello. I've been on the forums as a guest for awhile just studying/researching and getting familiar with Subarus. Mainly on NASIOC though. No offense to anyone on that forum, but some of the guys are kinda.... well, mean. Haha. That's why I'm posting here mainly. And because it's a WRX forum! I hope to post more on here and post my journey with this car. Hopefully one day, I'll be able to get a STI like some of you guys!

    Thank you to all who've taken the time to put up with my blabbering and reading this post. It means a lot! I hope to learn a lot from all of you!



    I'll try to post a few pictures too!

    EDIT: I forgot to mention that I got this car because it's AWD too! Living in TN, it rains quite a bit. And snows if we get lucky. Haha

    Hello & Welcome.

    Sorry for being mean on Nasioc ^_^ I'm kidding it probably wasn't me this time.

    Anyways welcome and enjoy your stay here. I don't know if its me (being on Tapatalk) but a few of your pictures aren't loading for me. Might want to take a look at them.

    Thanks! Haha, no it wasn't you.

    Hmm, I'll check it out. It should show 4 pictures. It says "IMG" before and after the pictures. I'll try to fix it. Thanks!

    Love your car btw!

    I have a question. I didn't want to make a thread for this because I don't know where to even put this and it seems like it's simple but I can't figure it out. Lol

    I'm looking for a thread for wheels and suspension. I was curious to see what aftermarket wheels would look like with stock suspension. I searched that, but random threads came up. I looked in the gallery part for pictures and searched there too, but still the same results. Am I doing something wrong? Lol

    Wow! I haven't been on here in such a looong time. Well, I've met some really cool Subaru guys and girls in my area since I originally posted this. I'm still stock, but about to start modifying now. Going back and looking at the old pictures I took, I was such a noob at photography (I picked up photography as a hobby now). And my friends' cars in the picture aren't stock anymore! Man, a lot has changed. Click image for larger version.

    Missed this thread when you started it. So a late welcome to Clubwrx! What plans do you have in mind for your wrx?

    Thank ya! Well, I'm still learning the basics and terms when it comes to modifying. But I plan on getting an Invidia N1 catback, downpipe, intake, stock BPV (previous owner put on an aftermarket BOV). Then, coilovers and wheels! And hopefully I'll learn a thing or two in the process and add more things. (:

    Sounds like you are heading down the right path. A couple things to consider in your list. Number one is an uppipe. If it still has the stock uppipe it needs to be replaced ASAP, and its best to do it when you do your downpipe as you have to remove the downpipe for access to the nuts/bolts of the uppipe. The stock uppipe was a poor design from Subaru on the 02-05 wrx's as it had a cat in it. The cat had been known to break apart, wiping out turbos or worse. Only other thing I can see in your list is a way to tune the car. Accessport, tactrix cable, protune. Def gonna need a tune after all of that.

    WRX-maniac: Ah! Thanks! I'll do that then. I mean, I think I might just have to. Because this car is going on 130K miles and it's all stock. These parts are bound to fail sooner or later. That's one reason why I would Iike coilovers asap too! I feel like the ride is just a little too harsh. Haha. And also, I'd like to buy an Accessport but I don't know what they really do. Can you just tune the car with that?

    TownLine500: Thanks! Yeah, I love this model a lot! Almost had the car for a year now and couldn't see myself driving anything else.
