Default Newbie looking for some help/suggestions

hey folks,
been a long time Sentra owner but since my gf and me are looking for a car together we've thought long and hard and we found a 06 Impreza Sport Wagon, since we love the outdoors, camping/biking i think this could be a step better than my QG as i won't be afraid to drive down a gravel road now and the winters up here suck ass so i'll be more confident on the road
my buddy has a 06 Impreza sedan and i've always loved the AWD and feel of the car, our options for cars with our budget was
cheap - versa (love the car its a perfect small not big but no aftermarket parts yet)
middle - spec v/civic si but i see too many around and they all blend in after awhile...
up - corolla s, kinda pappa like but i know the quality is there

so thought i'd show some pics of the one avail and see if anybody has any suggestions, lemme know
its only got 29000KMS (owner past away recently) drives well (auto - so the gf can drive it too lots of power left, super clean, not much underbody rust or dents or bumps anywhere
here's some pics






i'd like to do some cosmetic mods (leds in/out) HIDs, CAI or SRI but not go to wild as i did on my last car, i'll be doing soem searching on here for cosmetic upgrades/owners manual for oil changes to start but i'm sure just by checking a couple pages i'll be interested in more things as the days go by

here's some pics of my QG.fully bolted Nismo + aftermarket parts, looks like i'm parting it out to sell the car stock as the interest level has been low



thanks for the help folks
marc

sounds like you got a plan.. a HID kit would be nice.. some swaybars.. maybe some tint for that 'cleaner' look if youre into that. throw an intake on if you want.. might get you some slightly better mpg too.. and maybe a wrx or sti muffler for a deeper sound and sportier look.

hey AlxSti,
tint may be questionable as it seems every car here gets trashed or broken into with tint, lame yes
after reading soem intake news it seems if you don't have the WRX or Sti its best to use the stock box, does anybody know the circumference of the inlet and the MAF size, i'm wondering if i can keep my SRI and pop i ton without any difficulties
ya another question is to keep my Megan exhaust and pop it on as well, its the perfect sound on the Sentra, low growl

you want to use the same intake and exhaust from your Sentra? I'd say the intake is a big NO and the exhaust would require custom fabrications to make it fit properly... I wouldnt do either. Intakes in general arent realyl suggested on our cars at all, UNLESS the maf sensor is lef tin the stock location (like the SPT, COBB, or K&N Typhoon).

I'd just remove the snorkle if you wanna keep the stock airbox, but gain some intake sound.

he'd be fine reusing the exhaust... just would require some modification

you won't get much gain from removing the snorkle (search snorkle removal or something along the lines of that) but you will get the intake sound. you can always put a drop in filter in... but they are less restrictive IE let more **** into your engine
