Hey all, thank you so much for your advice up to this point, I'm sure I'll be needing more. Not only is this my first Subaru, also my FIRST Turbo, AND my FIRST Manual. (Don't worry I know HOW to drive stick, just not pro at it yet.)
Here's my beauty

2005 WRX. I love how it has the STI wing, so sexy.

I had a question already, I appreciate anyone's input!
-The clutch feels pretty stiff, is this normal?

^^ Thanks man! I'm so happy right now it's rediculous, such a beautiful car. It's VERY clean, inside and out, I got lucky. Ended up being $14,000, I traded in my 2007 Toyota Corolla for $7,000, financed the rest. This car is SCARY fast, the only cars I'm used to are an '89 Jeep Cherokee and the rolla, so imagine how awesome this car feels to me! I WANT to go driving right now! But I'm at work, gotta pay for my new car!

sounds good. Drive safe while tired! It's worse than being drunk and driving!

seems low. Very easy to fix on your year. There's an idle adjustment cable (do a search) Couple twists, and it'll be to the 700-800 or so it should be idling at. Double check that it's only 500 though... below 1000 the tach is weird.
