- *Carless* Waaahhh
I was gonna say, congrats on buying the first car with the new wife, but it's apparently your dad instead. Congrats to him at least Don't worry, someday you'll get yours.
Regarding handling, stock WRX suspension has always been a little too tall and spongy out of the factory, especially compared to the Sti versions, convince your dad to invest in still eibachs or Sti pink springs if he's into spirited sporty driving and handling. Otherwise, just enjoy it best you can.
Just curious, do subaru still put those awful Potenza RE-92s on the car as their tire of choice, or do they come with decent rubber now? Because in the past the first and best performance/handling mods was to put half decent tires on the car as replacements.
Dunlop SP Sport 01s came with the car. I love Michelin tires so I've made my case for a set of Pilot Super Sports. The Dunlops lack feel but they have alright grip.
If we do suspension it'll probably be after we have the horsepower we want. The stock suspension is pretty acceptable. I'm more about how it feels than how it performs.
