Hello folks,

This is a great forum. No haters of the 08 like the "other" forum. I took delivery of a 5 dr 08 WRX premium on 4-28-08 after several months of research. It is great! Even keeping it under 4k rpm due to the break-in period, and it's STILL has pickup. I can't wait till 1000 miles (I'm at 500 now). I'll post some pictures when I can. Thanks for the free info!

I plan to keep it relatively stock, but will definitely go with the short throw shifter, tint the windows, and possibly look at an STI spoiler.

Keep up the good work here.

Congrats! Welcome to the club...This is a great site. Don't be afraid to ask questions, many of us are willing to help! 500 miles from now you will be even happier. This car pulls HARD, and is alot of fun to drive. :)

Congrats on the purchase, I agree with you there on the 08 but not on the "Everybody should drive a WRX" bit as we still need dickheads to drive Skylines and EVO's ;D ;D

I know you want to stay mostly stock, but I'd recommend grabbing some STi springs before the price shoots up:

they improve the ride a lot (pretty much eliminate body roll) and are still comfortable enough for every day driving. these are the springs the car should have come with.
Hey Saturn, I thought your avi looked familiar lol. I just ordered these springs today for my 08, I can't wait to get them.

OP..Welcome to the club.

Good luck keeping it stock. It's very tempting to mod this car, and it's only going to get worse! It's a great car out of the box though so I'm sure either way you'll be happy.

Welcome!

Thanks for all the welcomes. Yes, you are right, I'm already tempted to do something about the body roll, so I think you guys are correct about not making it a year, but we'll see. Thanks for the suggestion Saturn.

I also think it is kind of liberating to know that I'm not driving a Camry-like, see-one-every-block kind of car. It's nice being unique, and faster than 97% of the cars on the road. Even without really unleashing the turbo, I'm already ahead of the pack right off the start line (red light). Only 300 miles to go until 1000!
