Hey this is my first post here on the forum, and I dont think i could have picked a better time. I just wanted to share my excitement! I am totally satisfied with the Cobb AP stage 1 flash. I agree with what others have posted about it, but its nothing compared to the way it feels. Once the novelty wore off from taking the car home, i was dissapointed with the cars lack of manners. I was tired of the car feeling like it wanted to stall all the time, and the edgy and jerky attitude of the car. After this mod, the car is like a totally different animal. Its so smooth and easy to drive, but still feels more responsive and more powerful through the whole rev range. I am so happy that my car feels like a $26k enthusiast car, and not a $15k bottle rocket. My favorite quote was the comparison of the wrx to a rubber band. haha. IMO subaru set the car up to grab the attention of perspective buyers, the car is so much more livable now. I seriously cannot wait to go stage 2 and really feel the power difference. This made my night. Anyone out there wondering if its worth $700, it definetly is.
