Amen to that! Now Subaru just has to start bringing over all the other goodies available from other markets. Oh, and offer the 2.5 as an option for upper trim levels. Then Subaru may finally be able to compete with the rest of the competition.

Oh, and I plan on owning this car for a long time so I definitely don't mind putting some money into making sure it looks good and runs good for years to come. Any other advice/opinions appreciated, thanks!
I can just speak on the mesh grill and that price is about average although you can get it for a little cheaper but not much from a dealer on eBay. It is not a hard project to install yourself. You just need a stubby phillips screw driver. Use the new grill to guide you as to mounting tab locations on the bottom. Takes about a half hour to do. You do not need to remove the front fascia as the directions say just flex it a bit to get at the screws.

Dirt Bringer, could you post a link to the Perrin bar you got? I'm interested. I was figuring on getting the Cusco set, but this might be a better option..

Yes, the 08+ WRX ones fit from what we have gathered. Getting some BC's on my Sport ASAP. Then it's getting rid of my 17x7.5's and going 18's..

Also, I would imagine so, but would a trailer hitch setup for a Crosstrek fit ours?

Here are a couple pics,

Or find somebody who has already swapped their grill and will sell their OEM grill cheaply. I'm sure that I'm not the only person with one collecting dust on a shelf. Make me a reasonable offer and it's yours.

Sure man, I got the whiteline set and returned it. The perrin has brackets at the ends integrated in so it doesn't slide around. You will be wanting this one:

http://www.perrinperformance.com/sub...r-psp-sus-2xx1

You can get this for about $180 shipped off Amazon just fyi. Really makes the car handle great. Factor sporty hatch.

It's still on the stockers for now. If I were to upgrade endlinks it would probably be to a kartboy set.

Kartboy endlinks FTW. I have 'em on my car. Solid. VERY solid.

Just realized today that I've had 3 different setups for my wheels since I got my car. 4 if you count the set that never made it onto my car! lol

15 x 6 inch steel wheels with hubcaps running on 195/65 R15 89H Yokohama Avis
16 x 6 inch alloy wheels (1998 Subaru Impreza RS "Goldies") - never made it onto the car
16 x 6 inch alloy wheels (2005 Subaru Impreza WRX) on 205/55 R16 Kelley Explorer IIs
17 x 8 inch alloy wheels (2011 Subaru Impreza WRX) on 225/45 R17 Goodyear Eagle GTs

I also realized I've had nothing but Subaru wheels on my car. Never used an aftermarket brand.

Those WHEELS

How are those Eagle GT's on this car? Had them on my Si and loved them. Was considering getting those new Eagle Sports.. Look like a new version of the GT..

Yeah, how are those Eagle GT's? I also had them on my last car (Civic) and thought maybe I got a bad set. They were noisy as hell but very good otherwise.

Yeah, they weren't quiet. But they actually kicked ass in PA snow.. I had a set of them on 16's (maybe a 205/50-ish size) and some 225/40's on my 18" Volks.. The 16's were a little softer and comfortable, the 18's were flat and handled great..

This might have been covered in a previous post but here is my question anyway...has anyone received a check emissions systems(check engine light), check vehicle stability control systems, and flashing cruise control light on the dash?

This is really strange because this exact thing happened to me a few days ago. I was driving and all 3 of those came on at the same time - drove it straight to the closest dealership and the service advisor scanned it and cleared the codes, thinking it was just some mix-up. As I pulled out the drive-way of the dealership all of them came back on so I went back and he said they couldn't take my car in to get it checked out until this Friday. Hopefully it's nothing serious (he didn't really give me any concrete answers on what it could be and said it should be fine to drive - not sure how much I believe that). I'll keep you posted on what they say when I drop it off Friday morning.

Found the other person that had this happen in January 2012. The gas cap was mentioned but didn't seem to be the problem. Unfortunately, nothing else from him after these two post.

I had something similar last year and there was a TSB for it. Something to do with wrong gear timing in the CVT I believe.

Don't know that answer but I had Uhaul put one for our cars on and it's a great fit.

$150 for hitch $48 for install, $5 lifetime warranty against rust or damage. $100 for wire and install, I did that myself. So around $200 installed plus $40 if you do wire yourself
