Default caseyfoster's 2013 SWP WRX Hatch

Ive had a few Subarus in my time, last was a 2011 Charcol Grey WRX sedan, got rid of it not too long ago and this 2013 WRX hatch popped up and I snagged it.

Base model
Dealer installed STi short shifter and STi exhaust surrounds.

Installed:
Tail light overlays as I hate the look of the altezas on a white car.
Front lip (picked it up from a NASIOC vendor here for cheap)
Rally Armor mud flaps (present from my awesome GF)
De-badged

Next:
New headunit and front door speakers and a possible sub/amp since the stock audio sucks
Cat back exhaust just for the sound, probably turbo back plus access port later and tune.
Sway bars

Possible:
Wider wheels
Coilovers
STi topmount

Sorry for the crappy cellphone pictures in the dark.

Night I picked it up



Overlays installed


Mudflaps installed


Lip installed



Roof rack installed

Why did you sell the '11 sedan and then buy a '13 wagon?

Had another car between the two which was a hatch, loved the amount of space it had when I took it on a road trip.

Yeah, I went from a sedan to a wagon and can't imagine going back. It's the same car with more space. Why do they even make the sedan? I'm not that serious by the way so don't get all crazy you sedan folks.

I was at a dealership ready to purchase an '11 sedan, then I popped the trunk and saw how much space there wasn't (including the diff bump). Ended up buying a hatch soon after.

I'd go with audio first. I really wish I could upgrade the head unit in my car for better sound and connectivity, but I paid for the nav package, so I don't want to just throw that away. Plus I just got a Q300 catback and I'm not impressed with the sound.
