Next mods: Gauges (which you should already have given the mods on it now)

Current mods: Both those wheels and coilovers are HORRRIBLE for reliability/performance. The offset on the wheels is too low and that negatively affects reliability, road manners, and performance. The coilovers are cheapies that leave a lot to be desired. They don't handle well (compared to other setups), ride well, and have inherent design flaws.

I don't know much about suspension for these yet, but I'll throw this out there.
You don't mind them and don't think they're that bad because you haven't seen anything different/better, so you don't know better. You know what you've got.

Fair enough on the gauges. The first thing I'd replace then would be the wheels. You'll see immediately noticeable gains by running something in a better, Subaru friendly wheel fitment.

The type that tend to cheap out on coilovers like this aren't the type who typically have the opinion worth listening to since those that do know not to cheap out on suspension parts. With BCs your average users doesn't understand the important features of your suspension and gives a positive review that goes something like "yo bro, I got these coilovers for cheap and they are awesome!". You can find hundreds of positive reviews online for $400-500 Raceland coilovers for the same reason and I'm sure it should be obvious why they would be a poor choice.

No offense to those of you who I know run BCs of course.

Megans are worse than BCs. Unfortunately for his platform WRX, there aren't any coilovers on the market in that price range worth getting.

Yeah I'll look into the wheels what size and what offset would you recommend running and about the coils I don't think im going to change them just yet but maybe sometime in the future I could get some better ones

18x8 or 18x8.5 with an offset mid to high +40s.

It looks like you bought this.

2010 Subaru WRX

Be sure to compare your boost gauge to the AP. Prosport gauges aren't highly recognized for their consistency or accuracy. Not all are off, but it's always a good idea to check.

A better offset wheel will actually feel better between the road and your hubs. (Ask me how I know)

As far as another mod worth your time... I'd say a protune.
