    I'm New and so is my WRX!

    Well hello everyone, nice to meet you. My name is Ninny213, I'm new to the website as the WRX. I have loved the WRX since I've noticed them and FINALY I got me one. A 2006 WRX TR. Really wanted a STI but here in Louisville, Kentucky they are hard to come by, and the price is alil outta my range. I just got my WRX Aug 10th and am loving every minute of it. My car is black, 5speed with most your basic options. It dose have a spoiler though, seeing the base TR's dont. I'm a so called newb to the tuner world, the WRX is the fastest car I have ever drove. I'm looking forward to doing some aftermarket mods and such to it soon. I'm really looking forward to reading bout everyones WRX's and other cars. If anyone has any info or opinnions about the TR edition please feel free to let me know. Seeya around guys!

    You have officially made the best decision of your life. Congrats!

    You wanted an STI, and you basically got the next best thing. The 06 wrx has the same 2.5L engine with only a smaller turbocharger attached. If you decide to mod your car, for less than 2k you can be faster in a straight line than an STI. All you need is a Cobb AP (640 new), VF39(400 used), Larger top mount intercooler (around 200-400), and a turbo-back exhaust(around 400-600).

    With Another 2k into springs/shocks/swaybars/tires/brake pads and you will be faster through the twisties.

    I see that you're already talking about modding, so here are some links I suggest you check out:

    Hey Ninny,

    I'm going to assume that you are 280z/300zx on Zcar, as you told me there that you would be signing up here. Glad to see you aboard. As you can see, there are many friendly members here with a wealth of information for you. And you being from the Louisville area, if you have a free weekend, you can join me and go meet Seth (GraysonSubaru) over in Knoxville, and run the Dragon one day. Welcome aboard.
