These cars definitely look better with the wrx wheels.
Buffalo here too! My pix were at Forest Lawn.

@SleepNMnky Is it the door edge near the handle on the driver-side front door?

yup... but if you weren't looking for it would you have noticed?

edit: it's more noticeable when coming from behind.

You were right, sleepnmky. It's subtle and only noticeable from the rear angile if you are looking hard for it.

If it were in person I would probably notice it, only because I'm pretty anal about cars and picking out details. It did help the fact that you said the door swung out and hit another door. Would I worry about it? Nahh, it's not bad at all. If it is just a door edge that is bent, you can get dent wizard or any body shop to straighten it out provided you didn't break paint.

Thanks!

Sport comes in the solid colors (not the Deep Cherry or Sky Blue though) and three options of two tones (sage green and silver, sky blue and silver, black and dark gray). I just looked at the ones with black leather interior and picked my favorite outside color from there.

I believe once you go Limited you're stuck with CVT, which is why people get Premium. Leather seats = CVT in Subaru slanguage.

Yes, Limited does tie you to CVT.

I agree. IMO the white looks better with the alloy than the gunmetal. But there's a few with black wheels I've seen in here that are pretty bad ass too.

Sorry, all my pictures were taken with a cell phone :P

How are your HID holding up? Have they been burning out your bulbs? Where did you get your kit from?

You also said LED's? Was it for the Fog lights?

Awesome look on the black grill and fog light rings.


Can you post more pictures. I wanted to do the same thing? How well did pasti-dip last? Did it take weather damage pretty well?

Did it start to fade after a while?
