I have been a long time lurker here and have been wanting to get a WRX for the last 5 years but haven't had the finances in order to make it happen. Graduated last year and after a year of working decided to finally pull the trigger on a new WRX in Lapis blue. To give an idea of where I'm coming from here is my current ride which has held out well for the past 10 years: http://i.imgur.com/hob7XVN.jpg
While I'm waiting for my wrx to come in I've put together a long list of intended mods over the next few years.
sorted from first to get to last.
auto dim mirror
aos-still researching how much the wrx needs this
winter tires and rims
perrin shifter bushing and stop
lighter crankshaft pulley
led interior lights
Hoping to do all these at once so I only need to pay once for tuning.
nameless turboback 5" mufflers
cold air intake
3 port boost controller
