Hey guys,
Will from Norwalk,CT saying hello all to the forum. I just got my WRX two days ago and I love it! The sound of the engine and exhaust, the speed and the color (Plasma Blue Pearl) are all fantastic. I had just leased a 2009 Legacy with manual transmission and I was a little worried the WRX would have the same box. Thankfully it has a good to great gearbox. Shifts are crisp and give good feedback. Reverse is still iffy but it could be I am hamfisted in reverse.
My dealer said no break in period and it is a lease so it is hard to heed the advice of friends who say to go easy. I have owned an Acura RSX (fantastic gearbox but a gutless wonder under 6K RPM), an E46 M3 (great car but $750 for tires every 6 months sucks and any snow was a show stopper) and the Legacy. The WRX is as fun as the M3 and sounds much better. Seeing how much I love this car already, I am double thinking the lease deal. Some gripes: this car without 18-19 wheels is a crime and summer tires on an all-wheel drive car sold in New England?! Anyhow, I look forward to many smile filled miles and no speeding tickets! Positive thinking works right? I'll post pics ASAP.

Welcome to the forum & congratulations.

The cars are shipped with Summer Performance tires from the factory. Most of us get a second set of wheels with winter tires for cold weather driving.

Thanks. That will be me also. Yonkers and Norwalk get the same snow. All seasons would have left more money for me to get 18's.
