  1. HVAC controls swap from 2008 to the 09+ -- Do they work the same?

    3G WRX Interior
    This is a minor thing that's half cosmetic and half functional. I got the 08 WRX and love it, while also seeing room for improvement. One of those things is that the smooth HVAC knobs on the 08 have no way to grip them well if you have light gloves or dry hands. In the '09, they came out with...

    3G WRX Builds
    Time to start one since Ive been ordering parts for my 08 wrx sedan.... Since 2006 my co-workers and roommates have owned subies so naturally I wanted one. So last year I needed to upgrade my island cruiser (01 jetta) to a subie. I really wanted a hatchback but was pretty much impossible to find...

  7. Suspension Help?!!!

    Subaru WRX Newbie Support
    Need some sound advice from the community on my build: My first mod is some Feal coilovers. I'm going for aggressive handling but not so much every tiny bump throws my back out. This is for an 08 wrx sedan. Do I put struts and sways on? Bushings and anti-lift kits? How much more do I need to...

    Subaru WRX Newbie Support

    Subaru WRX Newbie Support
    Looking for suggestions on what looks and sounds good as far as catbacks on a 08 WRX sedan: Do I go SPT and retain the dual outlets or go single w something like Invidia? Does one have more function then the other?

  11. Catback choices?

    Subaru WRX Newbie Support
    I have an 08 Rex sedan that is stock w only 28k miles. I hate the OEM exhaust, doesn't even sound or feel like a subie. So as far as catbacks, for sound and boost I've read threads for Invidia and Perrin. Honestly I haven't found a pro/con that out weighs either one. Or if anyone can suggest...
