great site here, glad I found it.
Have been a Honda guy all my life.... finally got sick of no-AWD so got a 2013 WRX sedan a few weeks ago. It's getting hard to find many left at the dealerships around here.
Absolutely love it. Still trying to figure out the MPG thing... as the trip computer shows 23-24mpg but am only getting 320 miles off a full 16.9 gallon tank.... which would be more like 18mpg. No really important and have only put 1,300 miles on it but curious what's up with that.
low profile tires and tight suspension is great, aside from horrible thunk if I hit a pothole
Was looking at starting with a K&N Typhoon Short Ram Intake..... wonder how loud it'll be :eek:
Just wait until you've had the car for several years and it's paid off and the engine and transmission are begging to be upgraded... you'll be in a whoooooole different mindset.
But for now, welcome and enjoy your warranty
Congrats on the purchase. Nice color choice too.
Big don'ts that people new to subies (especially the newer ones) dont follow:
-No air or fuel related bolt ons/ mods without a tune.
-91+ octane everytime, no exceptions (chevron and shell tend to have the best quality of fuel)
-No BOV without a speed density or blow through set up.
-Regular oil changes with synthetic
Cobb AP's are your best friend with these cars. Ability to read codes, view all your sensors built into the car from the factory, put a safer more sporty tune on your car (stage one), ability to instantly tune for a intake if you get one. Plus downpipe and or turbo back exhaust (stage 2) if the mod bug hits you. You have vallet mode so if you let someone borrow it they aren't mashing on it. You also get a economy mode tune.
