Ah yeah - I wasn't sure how to fit that in the profile field. I actually already have the car (bought it off the lot) and yes, the steering wheel and shift knob are leather.

I just picked up the rear cargo tray today. It's a little more "plasticy" than I expected but seems like it will do the job of protecting my trunk from spills and the like.

sliding arm rest, the stock position just sucks, mud guards protect the paint around the wheels.

just a note: the 2013 sport limited has the sliding arm rest (at least mine does). the splash guards were already installed. They seem like they will help somewhat.

So does the 2012 Sport Limited. I think it is part of the LTD Package.

Ehh cool....... Not really. Just came that way. I bought myself a set of rally armor mud flaps. Just finding the time to install them is difficult.

All Impreza's have the sliding armrest on the center console except for the base 2.0i.

Damn you guys for convincing me to spend more money on my car and get a license plate bracket. I can't decide which one to get, do you have a picture of the Legacy plate bracket installed (with license plate and all on your car)? The picture isn't very good. I'm hoping they will have a sale soon, did you guys buy the brackets from that site specifically?

unless there is an aftermarket equivalent I feel it's worth it. it looks nice. it also has some handy dandy plastic screw head covers so they don't get corroded.
I'm going to go with http://www.floormatsnmore.com/subaru...uding-wrx.html shipping is only $8.50, the Amazon seller charges $25 to ship.

You won't regret the WeatherTech floorliners as they are worth every penny...

you know my car has the splash guards right? I'm just not a huge fan of the actual mudflap (rally armor or otherwise) look.

I wouldn't buy it there now

I can get you a pic sometime, but probably not until tonight

Ya, that is what i saw. There were splashes literally right behind the guard so i have no idea what the function is other than looks

I agree it won't block everything but just the fact that it sticks out a little further has to provide some reduction in stuff from the tires from kicking up and hitting the car. Functionally I'm sure the rally armor is quite effective - aesthetically I'm not so sure but beauty is in the eye of the beholder eh?

Thanks, that would be awesome. It doesn't seem like the best use of money at this point if ever. I might just end up getting a license plate relocation kit, in the near future.

Yup, I've been eying them since when they came out.

nice looking front bracket there. I'd be happy with either type I suppose.

I got my weathertech floormats the other day and put them in. they fit very well and seem like they'll provide really good coverage/protection in some areas that the subaru floormats wouldn't.

I have the splash gaurds installed and they do absolutely nothing. I want to get rally armor flaps. Do I have to remove the splash gaurds or can I use both?

I too have the Aero Splash Guard, but also strake kit. I Too would like to know if I can put Rally Armor without removing anything.

I didn't have OEM guards but I don't think they would be compatible with the Rally Armor ones. If you want to be certain you could just e-mail them.

I'm pretty sure I've seen pics of Imprezas with both installed.
