    First Time Subie Owner

    Hello everyone! I joined the forum a few months ago and bought my first subaru about a month ago. I went with a 2014 WRX base model with 8k miles. I am the second owner, and the only modifications on the car when i bought it were an nvidia (n1 i think?) exhaust and pioneer cd/dvd player. It's funny how many more rattles you notice while driving after you buy the car, but I suppose that gives me something to work on. Unfortunately i dont have the tools to install things on my own, so i'll have to fork over extra cash when i want to install any engine/suspension/exhaust parts.

    Mods I've Added:
    Weathertech dark window deflectors
    Weathertech digital fit floor mats
    18% tint all around
    Rally Armor mud flaps
    H11 to H9 headlight conversion

    Future plans:
    Whiteline 24mm front, 22mm rear sway bars
    Whiteline endlinks
    Nvidia downpipe (when i add the downpipe, will have to get a tune? I really didn't want to do a tune until after the warranty is up)

    Here is a pic! Glad to be a part of the subie family!

    You do need a tune for a Downpipe.
    Then you have stage2.
    If you plan on an intake you would want to do them at the same time
    Swaybars make a big difference in handling.
    Start upgrading your bushings as well. .
