New kid from NH

Hey everyone, just Turned 18 not too long ago. I had one hell of a week, turned 18, graduated, and paid cash for a brand new 2012 WRX with 7 miles on it



2.5L turbo 5 speed, yayaya all of you already know that. Enough talk, here's some pictures.

My first car was a 97 e36 328i 2.8 6 cyl, was definitely a great car but wasn't what i wanted for winter time, especially in NH. I sold that and ended up with a 98 Cherokee 4wd 4.0L. It was great in the snow and offroad but it was a piece of junk and was awful on gas so i started looking at Subaru's. After about 10 minutes of looking at the first dealership i went to i was doing paperwork for the WRX. This car is perfect, jsut as fast as the e36 and it has AWD.

I don't know much about WRX's...YET so if anyone has any useful tips that would be great!

I brought the check to the dealership and handed it to them

but really, it's a long story that I'm not really supposed to talk about

Hopefully you dont catch mod fever quickly after paying for all the car upfront. But sweet ride!

I really want a BOV and a nice exhaust but I don't want to mess with the warranty. So I'm going to leave it stock til after college.

I'm going to Massbay to become a BMW service tech if anyone wanted to know

Yes, I was reading something that said you need to relocate a sensor if you do get a bov. Correct me if I'm wrong

If you just want it for sound obvouisly, get a exhaust and a intake, its a good sound combination and not mess with our cars that do not like BOV. Also make sure you know how to break the motor in, you can have all the fun with getting on it later, but take it easy on her for now.
