    Hey from Pittsburgh!

    I just took delivery of my WRX last night, and OMG, I love it! I've never had such a nice car before, and it puts a big stupid grin on my face every time the turbo spools up through a corner!

    2008 WRX Hatch, OBP, stock. "Premium" package, plus auto-dim mirror.

    I'm pretty much going to leave it stock (reliable), but I will add the roof rack carriers for toting my bicycles around.

    I'm a little older (read: more boring) than the typical WRX owner, it seems. :-) Heck, I've had a Hayabusa for seven years, and my major mods amount to a set of hard luggage and the accessory center stand. :-)

    I am interested in something like an HID conversion, to make it easier to see deer in or near the roadway so I can nail the brakes a little earlier. I'm not really into sinking kilobucks into making the car any hotter for the street--it's already more than fast enough to get into trouble in a hurry while carrying speed into a corner. Plus, if you make the engine stronger, driveline parts tend to break.

    As for the bike rack, Subaru claims the accessory crossbar supports can be installed or removed in minutes, without tools. Removing something like a Thule carrier (the design they bought from Sportworks, which is the only one worth having) will probably add a few more minutes. I bicycle several thousand miles per year, so that accessory, at least, is a must for me.
