Default 2020 STI, old member, new car

I've been on NASIOC since 2006, I think. I just bought my first new Subaru. I had two used 2005 STIs over 10 years ago. I bought a new 2020 STI last week. So far so good.

That silver color is sharp. Partially biased though

My only thoughts on mods right now are:

1. Winter tires and wheels that are higher profile and fit the brakes. I had blizzaks on Rotas on my first STI. Loved the daily driving and traction at the expense of turn in and precision.

2. Is there an easy way to remove the wing that's reversible if I sell it one day? On the 2005 STIs I did a trunk swap with a WRX. Too many holes for the old wing. I haven't researched the new style. I didn't want a limited due to the sunroof.

3. I removed my 12" alpine sub, amp, custom box from my 2015 Mustang GT before I traded it in. Is it fairly easy to tie an amp and sub in the rear trunk? The mustang was not easy due to factory bass roll off to the rear deck speakers.

4. I have no plans for Cobbs or power mods at the moment. I like the factory torque curve and relatively predictable power over the rpm band. The second 2005 STI I had came with a manual boost controller, and the torque hit would blow the rear tires off, making it very difficul to drive. I went back to a stock boost controller and accessport stage 2 tune with downpipe. Going from 435HP to 310ish is a big loss during highway driving, but for my daily commute on usually wet, twisty mountain roads, the STI does much better.

I've got a lot to research.

I put 18x8 sparco pro corsa wheels and michelin pilot sport a/s 3+ tires on it. Much better in the rain and cold than the stock advans.
