    Just purchased new '15 WRX Base

    Just joined this forum after purchasing a new '15 WRX Manual. Wondering if there are any driving tips anyone had to pass on because this is my first Subaru.

    Thanks!

    Nothing special its a car. Keep it under 4k for the first 1000miles and you should be ok. Also put some money aside for a set of dedicated winter tires. Congrats on the car who did you get it from?

    Also one thing I've noticed while driving is shifting from 1st to 2nd is significantly more jumpy than other sticks I've driven.

    That problem goes away when you upgrade to the 2015 STi.

    Others have reported that once they bought a Cobb Accessport and flashed Stage 1 that issue went away.

    Drive it and enjoy it! That's the only tip.
    The Anti-N00b. Use "Search", YES, you need a tune. NO, you don't need a BOV. Don't try to make you car shoot fire, and change your freaking oil.
