    I'm new to this site.

    Hi, everybody,

    I just signed up in the forum.

    I'm in my early 30s and I'm new to the world of tuning and I'm definitely interested in learning more about it. Any suggestions as to where to start? Any books I can read up on? Also I will probably need to buy a new car in a year or two and I want to buy WRX, but STi is little too much for me to afford considering I have a wife and two kids to support. I'm not even sure if my wife will let me buy WRX. She will probably want a family sedan like Honda accord or something. I will keep all of you posted what happens.

    You have found the right place for infomation on all things WRX. The sticky at the top of the forum is a great place to start.

    and welcome to The Club!!!!

    Here's a great place to get to know everything about our subies:
    FAQs from NASIOC.

    Also, a convincing arguement would be to show the wife how safe and reliable subarus are. Can't argue with our award-winning crash-test ratings.

    Or just take it from this guy: www.bongmonster.com
