    My new ride!

    It's totally stock. I plan to do change the exhaust, get some downpipes, and do an engine management on it.

    What else does it need?

    Because driving a stickshift is too much of a hassle for me. I'm a disabled vet with a broken back and shot knees.

    the sideskirts are already painted.

    I agree with some sort of lowering springs cause our cars look like monster trucks, but if you have a broken back so it might not be the best thing in the world. I would get the EM first though.

    Good luck and nice ride!

    I know...its a rite of passage to have someone tell you that when you post pics of your new car.

    My answer to your queston of what else you should do was going to be, get a manual transmission.

    In that case, it seems very justifiable. But if you have a bad back, wouldn't a stiff suspension (such as the WRX's) wreak havoc on it as well?
    Nice ride. Welcome to the club mang.

    Oh and by the way nice pick on the leather, I love mine, but an auto wrx wouldnt be high on my list. As stated 07 legacy FTW...nice car through.

    I was kinda expecting that. How much faster in 0-60 would a stick be?

    A bunch. A minimum of 2 seconds 0 - 60. Just trying to launch an auto is difficult; cannot simply rev the motor into the powerband and walk out the clutch. From a roll on and a few mods, you most likely could keep up with 5 speeds. Congrats on the car.

    By the way, what branch of service?
