Default I'm new! Impreza 2.0i base 5spd

Hey guys, new to this forum as I just recently picked up a 15 impreza base model. I've been looking through and have seen some awesome simple mods I will consider doing myself.
Although I know it's early but I'm just wondering if anyone out there with a 15 impreza 2.0i has found any intake systems or other bolt on performance mods. As I haven't been able to find a match yet! Though I'm sure after some time with it being a new model they're will be.
Thanks for any input!

Sorry to report there really aren't any engine performance mods for the 2.0i imprezas worth spending money on... you can however find some suspension bits and make it fun car to drive. Money spent into performance will yield VERY minimal (if any) gain so keep that in mind going into it. It is an economy engine after all. There is a guy on here doing tunes on the new CVT cars throttlehappy I think is his name, so you could read into that a bit more.

Finding a nice set of tires, alignment, some basic suspension mods and you're off to a good start!

Start with a 19mm rear sway bar (from the previous-gen STI), and maybe a short shift kit. Those are two mods that you will appreciate every day.

he does tunes for all of them, even the 5speeds. best money i spent on this car other than larger rear sway bar and snow tires.

i have done a lot that i cant even remember. but here is the most important stuff

rally armor
cobb short shifter + lathewerks stainless knob with my own custom leather cover + wheel skins leather cover= best improvements for the things most touched every day ( i see sgold already mentioned this)
STI rear sway bar
Throttle happy tune
snow tires on a different set of wheels.
headlight armor
yellow overlays for the outback fogs
H9 low beams + HIR1 highbeams (9011 i htink?)

pretty much anything +12 and newer will work. some parts from previous gen wrx and or FXT also fit like shifters.

Kartboy. He makes awesome stuff. I've had short shifters from him in 3 cars, makes a big difference. Www.kartboy.com

That should be the one for you, you can shoot a message to the Kartboy vendor account to double check though.

I'm picking up this same car in a week but the 5dr and appreciate the info here. There are some Subaru parts I would like to add at some point soon like fog lights, hood deflector and such. Is there a OEM supplier that you would recommend? Thanks.
