Afternoon!

Hello.

I recently purchased a 2011 satin white wrx limited. I've always been a subaru fan, but this is my first purchase. I come from the supra world, and am an active moderator on supramania though i sold my supra a couple years ago. It was a midnight blue pearl 88 turbo targa 5 speed with a couple go fast goodies. I still miss it and may just get another one some day.

I live in Spokane, Wa and moved here last year from Yakima, where I worked as a city, county, and federal corrections officer, as well as a police officer. I'm unable to talk about what I currently do, but it's interesting.

Anyway, looking forward to doing alot of research on the car, and maybe getting together with a local group and meeting some new people and getting some ideas. I probably won't do much to the car aside for an intake, and exhaust. I'll leave the turbo and boost alone for a while.

Good to be here. Talk to you all soon.

#1. Welcome!

#2. Thanks for not saying "I probably won't do much to the car besides a blow off valve"

#3. Because you'll probably want to do a little more in the future: Unabomber's Manifesto - NASIOC

#4. Since you live in WA and will probably see a fair amount of snow each winter, you'll probably want to look into a set of snow tires (if you haven't already). It is common to mount winter tires on your stock wheels and then purchase a second set of wider/lighter wheels to mount a set of sticky summer tires on. I don't know what your tire situation is, but that should certainly be one of your first mods.

I've always loved Satin White Pearl Scoobs

Thanks for the welcome, guys. ManShow, don't worry. I'm not one of those kids that post, "I want teh 800hp. What turbos do i need? I'm gonna lower my car by heating up duh springs."

I'll get some pictures posted one of these sunny days.

I still kick myself for selling it. Fun car to drive, and it sounded great with the full 3" turbo back exhaust. I'm loving my new subie though.
