    [insert cliche n00b thread title here.]

    Hey guys n gals. I'm Mel. I'm moving back to central NJ from DE at the end of May. I just picked up a silver 04 WRX last month after I totalled my old car, a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am [www.cardomain.com/id/grandamchick83]. Quite the upgrade. =] While I'm not new to the modding/forum posting scene [4 year vet on my GA board], I'm brand new to this car n imports in general. I'm not used to this thing called an aftermarket n different options!

    Right now it's stock except for 18" Rota Subzeros wrapped in 225/45/18 Nittos, 35% tint all around, an unknown uppipe, slotted rotors, bigger pads, n an Alpine HU with ipod connector cable.

    I took the car down the track last week n it ran a 16.4 with a 2.7 60' n a trap of 87mph -with a Service Engine light. Car was in limp mode, plus I had a REALLY bad launch.

    Just found out the other day that the previous owner, who I believe is a member on here, had a Stage IV along with every other mod imaginable...

    Once everything is fixed n the car is running properly, my plans are a Helix catted downpipe, catback exhaust [I've read that the Greddy Evo 2 is pretty popular], n an Accessport - then call it a day.



    Shane, protuner at Precision Tuning, if u read this - I bought ur car. PM me please!

    Thanks, fellas.

    I bought the HU the next day to replace the stock 6-discer, hoping it would improve the SQ.. it didn't. Not only are they blown, but the rear speakers are also missing wires?? The dealer ordered brand new, upgraded speakers, n they're replacing them for free, in addition to a few other things. The sales dept is getting the bill.

    It's the Alpine CDA - 9856.

    Thanks so much everybody! I hate being new. =/

    DJSHADOW - ur gonna love the Alpine. It's great. Except for the crazy bright blue, the green lights match the interior lights of the rex. I wonder what the 57 has that the 56 doesn't?

    What's PSM? I even checked the abb/acronym thread..

    I love these rims too. I like hyperblack better than gunmetal. I wish the rims I just got last summer fit on this car. They're 18" Konig Unknowns wrapped in 235/40/18 Falken Ziex 512s. Now they're just taking up space [yes, I'm trying to sell them].

    Thanks again!!

    Thanks again!!
    Yeah im excited for the alpine. The 57 has alpines "nicer" biolite display and buttons to scroll through songs/artists faster when using the ipod. Yeah the blue lights are going to clash with the interior but thats the price ya pay i guess. Did you put in the forester DIN pocket below the HU or did you leave it open? pics?
