RHD01WRX is an unknown
New Guy with a sweet ride

Hello WRX/STI drivers around the world. Name's Peter, currently stationed in Germany, and the proud owner of a 2001 WRX that is RHD. I love it, and really hope I can bring it back to the states with me. My 2 biggest flaws though, learning to drive the car to it's potential, and I know nothing on how the car works. Willing to learn, but if I pop the hood all I see is metal that could potentially be hot. So if i post a stupid question, I apologize in advance. Looking forward to fun drives and fun times.

2001...Nice. Well the best way to learn to drive a car is find an empty lot and toss it around, slowly at first then learn how the car handles. As you get use to it you will start to get a "feel" for it and will be able to deal with different driving situations. Modifying them on the other hand, well that takes some time and learning your way around a car in general.
This should get you started to learn how and engine works...

Welcome! Is this your first RHD car? If so, how awkward is it to shift with your left hand?
