I would be more interested in a car meet where I could see other peoples cars and what they have done to them, discuss Subaru stuff. Maybe do a drive but nothing too crazy. It would just be kind of fun to meet other WRX owners in the area.

I'm in Coralville. Maybe we can do a mini IC/Coralville/NL meet one of these weekends.

I would definitely be down for that. I rarely see WRX's around but when I do I get really excited. I am from Seattle and there it is a daily occurrence.

WR Blue Pearl

Default Quad Cities Newbie

Hi all. I got a '15 WRX Premium in WR Blue Pearl last August but I just started checking out the forums. I'm in the Quad Cities and was wondering if there was still a facebook group or meet ups happening in the area.

I have a cobb cat-back on the way, but would be open to suggestions on other first modifications to look into.

By North of Des Moines, do you mean Ankeny?

By any chance are your mud flaps red in color?

If this sounds like you, perhaps ease off the driving by of places where you see other Subarus and ease off the revving. You'll make more friends by not doing that.

There's a Facebook page for the Iowa Subaru Club, Central Chapter you can join to talk Subarus with locals and stay up to date on meets and events. The monthly meet is the first Wednesday of each month so we have one coming up this week and it is going to be at NYC Pizza Cafe in West Des Moines on Mills Civic.

Mud flaps are white, and rarely does my car ever see 4k rpm. I try to be nice to it. And If I have time I'll have to swing out there and see what's going on

Hello my fellow Iowa-folk! I'm looking for some help here! I'm thinking its time to replace my head gasket. sadface. Not excited about this since I've never pulled an engine, don't have an engine stand/lift, don't want to try doing it with the engine still in the car, and really really really really really don't want to drop a metric butt-ton (i've hear everything from 1200-2000) taking it to a stealership, also I don't know of any private mechanics that I would feel comfortable with doing subaru's utterly bizarre head bolt torqueing procedure (also I assume that they'll gouge for labor as well). So if any of you know (or are) a person who likes to help newbies out with advanced maintenance (for a fee of course) PM me por favor. btw I live in Ames, I can drive to DSM or somewhere else close.

I live in Ankeny and would like to meet up with some locals here in the Des Moines area. I just got my '16 WRX last December. Haven't done much and this is my first Subaru also. Lets make it happen.

Sadly this thread looks dead. I'm an Ankeny local and just here to see if there are any active subie enthusiasts in the area.
