    Great looking pictures!

    What should you do now? That depends on how you like to drive. That car has seemingly endless possibilities.

    If only the car had endless paint to go with the endless possibilities though. I like the gray cars, they're IMO great choices. Look into a clear bra and into scotchguarding your interior. Also put a layer of wax on the wheels (color test somewhere inconspicuous first) to help with the brake dust.

    In general I'd use tint if my local laws allow it, and I'd look for something that blocks the most UV. It's a practical/health/life quality issue. You can also look into sun shades for the rear, they generally work OK and are relatively easy to see through from the driver's seat. People with kids/sun sensitivity/elderly relatives ought to do whatever they can IMO.

    I'd say drive it for a while stock, learn what the car can and can not do, and then change the things that you want improved. Starting to mod just for the sake of modding is no fun and you'll end up with a car that might give you more problems and worse performance than stock. I noticed that modding is so rewarding when you change things and see that the change has made a big improvement on the feel of the car.

    Thumbs up

    "Just got my STI! hmm... what should I do to it now??"

    What you should do to it now is become more familiar driving it first.

    Techniques now, mods later.

    On a side note, excellent color choice, by the way. Way better than WR Blue Pearl.

    Biased opinion in my part? (See avatar)

    Perhaps, but in any case, congratulations with your new ride and welcome to the club.

    +1 for the clear bra and wax the wheels, Infact wax the whole car.


    Have fun
