I guess I'll just reserve this post for the pic!
Just make damm sure that the build date of your 09 isn't in July through August.

Tons of those motors have failed due to poor manufacturing techniques.

Any thoughts on the rear bumper guard? I am wondering if I should put mine on or not. I am torn. I LOVE the way it looks without it, but also like the looks with it and know it will help. Just don't want to hate it and have it tear up the paint or clear.

Hope this helps your decision!

Traded in my 2009 WRX sedan for a 2011 WRX hatchback about two weeks ago. These are just a couple quick snaps of the ride how it will probably stay until I find a new Subaru I want in a couple of years.

Also, just to note, the IAG overlays are amazing. They truly make the taillights look like they came this way stock, and I am super anal about corny looking stuff on my cars.

Can I ask where you bought your overlays from? Thanks?

Stock exhaust with bolt-on 3.5" stainless rolled edge tips. I plan to keep the stock axleback and I was never a fan of the ugly recessed stock tips.

Not a fan of bolt on tips, but they really do look pretty good here

How much did this cost you? And do the Bilsteins die early when driving off road like the Koni yellows do?

I dont know how long they will survive off road b/c my car is a street car only. The set up wasn't cheap, about $1300 dollars for struts and springs and that was the group buy price. I think the set up is now around $1500 bucks. I know is sounds like a lot, but considering the only other real option was the koni's and they were not specfically designed, tuned and tested for the '08-10' WRX body style like the Bilsteins were. They are definately tuned for really agressive driving, track days and auto-x'ing. Definately worth the price if you ask me, since you cant really get a great coil over the the same price and these are install and forget, so no fiddling around with height adjustments and bound/rebound adjustments. Not sure about the backs but the fronts are rebuildable as well.
