I like the cobb too, we will see. Im hoping i can get one. I really liked the mazda but being FWD kinda bothered me again. It was fun to drive and the feel was better than the tc. Plus i just want a 4 door now.

fwd or not the speed3 is still a beast in it's own way. My main issue with the speed3 is the styling.

it is! when i test drove it the first thing the salesman said was "alright this car has a lot of torque so dont give it a lot of gas and turn the wheel" lol yea I didnt like the styling either at first but it has grown on my a lot.

The styling has grown on me a bit too..for me the whole subie thing goes back to when my uncle had a bugeye when I was 16 and the impression that car made on me lol so it was the subie or nothing..although a very close 2nd was the new mustang 5.0..that thing is stupid fun to drive too!


Just found out that stance apparently has a coilover in their GR+ line for my wrx but I can't find any info on it ANYWHERE...I had these coils on my FC and loved them..so if they actually do have a set for my car I see some coilovers in my future..maybe lol :D

Me too, I've always had a thing for WRXs/STis. I've wanted one since I was about 16.

I drove an '11 sedan last week (the stock sedan exhaust is loud for a stock exhaust!), and I'm about to drive a GD STi to see which I like better. Used GD STi will be about the same price as a new WRX.

Yeah the stock exhaust has a pretty good rumble to it.

Engine bay is begging for a stealth black TMIC haha.

Also been going back and forth with a place for a set of wheels. Decided to go a not so aggressive route. Not 100% yet since I have to wait until xmas pans out.

Anyway that's a small update for now .

Going to Arrowhead in a couple weeks. My first time seeing or even being in snow so I am super excited to get some pics of my subie in it's natural habitat lol

haha that's how it goes man. I told myself I wasn't going to touch this car outside of window tint and an exhaust lol whoops...oh well..still debating on lowering it or not. Car may see snow from time to time so idk.

Went to a local shop and saw the wheels I am interested in in person..all I can say is 18's and only 17lbs..;)

So as usual I am indecisive as all hell about wheels..oddly enough I am kind of digging the forgestar f14..used the wheel simulator on their website which is kind of a ghetto photoshop lol anyway what do you guys think?





Not my car in the pic btw..just some side profile shot I found online. That car is on stock height but I am already looking at options as far as lowering goes.

Thoughts?

edit: ughh..having trouble finding these in 18's..oh well..opinions still welcome lol

Wheels have been ordered ;) I will post pics when they come in! I imagine a couple weeks.

Also looking at roof racks..went snowboarding for the first time and fell in love with it..even though I sucked haha. It was also my first time ever seeing, much less being in, real snow!

excited to see the wheels. I need some. If you are looking at getting a rack, I got the oem cross bars with inno medium fairing and thule flat top carriers. the setup looks good and is cheap compared to my full thule setup I had on my xB.

Heres a pic of my setup
