Right now I'm focused on getting a retrofit for HIDs and figuring something out with the stereo. The sound SUCKS but everyone says it's the radio not having enough power. Swapping for aftermarket makes it all better.
you should read this article if you think you will "trash" your warranty just because you put aftermarket parts on your vehicle.
it's your vehicle, if you WANT to change something, then change it, they cant void JUST BECAUSE you changed out their parts for yours. They have to prove that your after market parts are the root cause of the failure if a failure occurs.
sorry if this comes off a lil rash, it just urks me when people say they dont want to void their warranty...
otherwise, sweet car, i wish i had one...or could afford it for that matter.

Thats a sweet ride brotha.. I think those wrx's already have close to 300hp stock..
265 on wrx, 305 on sti. I'm slowly delving into the knowledge of how to get more power out of the engine. I could unlock a few ponies with the accessport cobb tuning makes. @ $600 the price really isn't that bad that allows you to reflash the factory ECU, and turn it back to stock if you wanted to.
I hear ya, but it's not like people buy WRX's to drive their grandmother to bingo. They will attempt to deny your warranty if they find any proof of abuse.
Actually, Subaru of America has honored warranties for failed ring lands on heavily modded STIs so they are more understanding of tuner culture than other brands are. Still, it would likely have to be a common failure point on the car for them to overlook the mods.
