    Cool New Owner...

    Well I finally got my silver 2005 WRX and I love it! It's just so hard keeping the revs down for the break in period. The car just feels like she wants to go.

    Here's a couple of pics:

    I guess I need to change my user name now...

    I had the same reaction, but I've had my springs so long that I can't really remember what my stock ride height looked like...

    Welcome!

    Are those the stock wheels for '05? I didn't know they had changed. I like 'em!

    Welcome to the club, the WRX is a great sports car, and yea its hard to go the first 1000 miles but it is essential to the future performance and longevity of the Rex. There are alot ogf good breakin threads here, search them and find out the right way to go about it.. Good luck
    Its all fun and games till someone loses an eye....

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Should I be conserned about the hieght in the back?

    Trailboss no love for the old CF? Don't worry I don't think I'll be doing that in the WRX.
