    New member here saying hello

    Just joined today - hello everyone.

    I am looking to purchase a 06+ WRX in the next 12 months. I currently own a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT with 120,000 some miles as my daily driver. Once the Pontiac decides to die, I'm getting a WRX. Although the way she is running it may be a while

    My nice weather toy is a 1998 Ford Mustang Cobra:

    So I will be surfing around here to find good info on things I should know before buying, and what options are a must.

    Thanks guys

    No don't want to test drive yet because I know I would one asap! Also I'm from Pennsylvania, around the Downingtown/West Chester area.

    Just shopping and getting all the details. But I think this is what I'm looking for:

    WRX Sedan - Silver or that dark gray
    Leather Package
    Turbo Boost Gauge
    Diff cover

    Anything else I should want

    Why the diff cover? Plan on going off road? I believe it gets in the way of servicing and some mods which you will all but helpless to start adding.

    The short throw shifter is better to have than the diff cover IMO. Nice color choice.

    Thats a fire starting question . Look up Cobb Tuning Accessport. And free up the Exhaust then you'll get some . Thats putting it short, trust me the list can go on.
