2019 Impreza - just bought

Someone hit me from behind and totaled my old car (2011 Hyundai Sonata 2.0T), so this is the new ride! I got a **** of a deal! I am still learning the likes and dislikes, and I would love to know what mods to do, or what to add if anything.

What say you? Do you like it?

Hope it is in the right generation and area lol

Thanks!

Mike

Welcome, lucky4life!

You could think about appearance mods and/or performance mods. But don't be like those people that add salt to something w/o first tasting it; get to know your car for a bit and see what you might want to improve; look through the threads here for pics and see what you think about what others have done. I've loved mine just the way it came to me, so I'm leaving it alone. Of course, a bunch more torque and horsepower would be great but that's not happening. My first improvement will probably be window tint.

Welcome! Tint, replace all light with led (read manual for part number then order). That what I did to mine for now.

Welcome!

"Performance" on this engine is kind of limited but you can certainly make it look nicer, handle better and sound better.

You would be surprised at what the side window deflectors will do for the looks of these cars. I got mine put on with my sales deal. Then I put on one of those soft air splitters and the Subaru mud flaps. I also put an SSD engine cover and I am thinking about a muffler for better sound.

There is an engine tune that improves driveability and mid-range power, but it would affect warranty claims for engine issues. I've been running with it for close to 6 months and am very happy with the results.

2.0i Base, MT5. Only the necessities, plus a few extras... like custom center console tray, phone holder, sunglass holder, rear seat AC vent, COBB shift lever & Rallisport engine tune w/o rev hang.
