    New here

    Just picked up an 09 DGM wagon. Im not really into tuning or racing for that matter but this forum has a lot of useful things to read up on. I am from sacramento but spend most of my days working in the bay area.

    Anyone know a good tint shop in sacramento?

    also

    anyone paint or do the vinyl overlays for their car?

    I am interested in possibly doing one of the above later but have a feeling I would probably f-up so if theres anyone here that has done one or the other maybe you could help me out down the line.

    Thanks-

    yeah.. you say you aren't into making it faster until it doesn't feel fast anymore, then you're all the sudden gonna be on the prowl to spend money. sometimes i go and drive my girlfriend's saturn for half a day, makes my car feel like it has afterburners.

    Welcome!!

    Hopefully you buy a KIA for a DD so your car feels fast, and your WRX doesn't become a money pit. You'll resist for a while, but you'll eventually break!

    haha... thanks for the welcome

    I wasted a lot of money when I had an eclipse.. then i spent a gang of money turning it back to normal... that was about 10 years ago and i dont think i can go down that road again.

    i got the wrx because i wanted something fun to drive but was still somewhat practical and being close to tahoe i thought it would be prudent to get something with awd... being almost 30 i think i can safely say i am out of the "mod" game... but i still like to live vicariously though others on this forum and seeing all the things being done to their cars.

    as for me.. i just keep telling myself "i drive a wagon.. i drive a wagon"

    Welcome. Even if you are not into 'tuning' anymore, there is a lot of simple mods you can do to make the car funner and more original ;D ;D Have fun.
