    New to Subaru

    Hey everyone. I just bought a WRX wagon, which I've enjoyed for 5 days now. Traded in a BMW Z4 (fun as heck, but not $50K worth of fun anymore), and a VW Passat (utter POS).

    A few questions: What's the consensus as to the first couple of modifications that you should think about? Should I go with a full synthetic oil on the WRX? Should I keep the stock Potenzas or go with a different/better tire for Southern California driving?

    Thanks.

    1) 1st mod - Driver: get used to the car, its a lot faster than your Z4. learn to handle the car properly. take an advanced driving class.
    2) get a nice sticky set of tires and some wider rims. 16x7.5 at least.
    3) after that do what you'd like. Springs/Sway bar for suspension, or a Cobb AP to flash to Stage 1 and smooth out the power band, then get exhaust stuff to get more power.

    Check out the Sticky and FAQ at the top of the forum.

    Synthetic isnt necessary, but do it if you'd like.

    RE92's suck at everything they do. I use them in the winter here in New England but that is it.
