New WRX Owner

Just purchased a 2007 WRX. After doing a lot of research and looking around, I found the one I wanted. Low miles and the color I wanted. She's stock for now. I'm going to be doing a TBE and stage 2 tune in the near future. Any comments or suggestions for me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Nice choice

Sounds like you've done your homework as far as beginning mods too.

Welcome to the club. Post up some pics if you can. Best bet, read this and see what you come up with:Unabomber's Manifesto - NASIOC. Stage 2 is a great start for the car.

first thing to do with the 07s is something about those god awful altezza tails. black em out or swap for 04/05s.

I personally recommend dont touch the engine for a while and start with some swaybars and maybe even endlinks. Some braces and bushings here and there. I have upgraded both my suspension and engine and i find that suspension is much more enjoyable. Even though i have made my car faster than stock it doesnt do any good if it cant corner/handle any better. I say keep ## engine stock as long as possible and beeef up the suspension. At stock power levels u can easily break the car loose so why get more power without control first?

Yup I bought it from Patricks in Mass. They were awesome. Very helpfuly and willing to negotiate. It was a 2.5 hour drive but they made it all worth it. I really like the interior also. The seats are more comfortable than I thought they would be. Thanks for the welcome and the responses.

Yeah those guys were great. It was a great deal and the car has 18k miles. Well worth the drive. They've emailed me and asked how I like the car, went the extra mile. How do you like your car?
