2011 WRX

Default My First Subaru

Hey all, about a month ago I traded in my 09 Cobalt SS for 2011 WRX 4 door Red. I will have to say I am impressed with the WRX and looking forward to upgrading. Still trying to do research on stuff so I dont make any mistakes. Right now the car is stock with 27000 with boost gauge and head unit in from previous owner.

Right now I am keeping the car for DD but might turn into a track/auto x car. Parts I have looked into are whitelines front/rear 22mm adjustable sway bar with kartboy front/rear endlinks and whitelines strut bar. I have bounced back and forth from coilovers and spring/strut combo just because although I plan on turning into a track/auto x car it will still be my DD (most likely). I havent been able to do a lot of research on spring/strut combos so I was looking for suggestions and tell me if I am wrong but I have heard BC Racing Coilovers are fairly good.

As for other parts, i am set on the Invidia Q300 burnt tips exhaust with with invidia catless dp, intake (havent done any research on intakes), Cobb tune.

Also for aftermarket wheel, i was looking to go 17x9.5 or 18x9.5 but i have read that 9.5 would rub with factory suspension, so would the spring/strut combo help with that? And correct me if I am wrong but doesnt wider wheels/tires reduce handling for track/auto x courses?

Thanks in advance for help and input!
