PLEASE HELP!

So I am volunteering for a focus group on the Subie Hatchback.

My task is to find out basic Like's and Don't likes about the 2012+ Hatchbacks. Also, things you would want to see in the future added or featured.

You can shoot me one or you can shoot me all its up to you.

Ex:

Changing headlight bulb is easy to access (Like)
New taillight design (Dislike) - Prefer LED 2011-

Any help would be appreciated.


Justin

No problem, and after just going for a drive...don't forget the loud blower for the AC and heat! You can hear that better then you can feel it!

Stock bushings for both sways?

What's the improvement with the Kartboy links? Doing the STI rear next week and wondering if it's worth doing that too. Do you buy them for this chassis or another?

Also, what is the diameter of the OEM front sway? I have the Sport, don't know if they're the same or not up front..

Dislikes:
- Rear hatch doesn't close properly sometimes when you close it by pushing on the Subaru emblem (from ~1foot distance).
- No rear step bumper protector available like on the XV.
- Seat belt chime way too loud on the 2014. It increased significantly from the 2013.
- Lack of side seat bolster. More seat adjustments would be nice.
- Paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel. Would rather have it mounted on the column.
- Cargo cover pull/retract action seems kind of cheap compared to a 2010 Forester.
- Bulbs for fog lights are not very powerful.
- Cabin noise (especially wind noise on highways)

Silly question, but why not just order the step bumper protector for the xv and use it on your impreza? As for the loud chime, it is easily disabled if you're talking about driving without a seatbelt. Would you honestly prefer the paddle shifters on the column?? I mean, I feel like if you were "racing" and needed to shift in a turn, your hands are turned with the wheel so they're right there!

I remember reading that the XV bumper protector is slightly too long in depth. I ordered one from C&C Car Worx instead.

I should clarify the issue I have with the chime is that it's just too loud and I'm not talking about driving without a seat belt, just other scenarios like when the key is in the ignition and the door is open...etc. I'm not interested in disabling it.

Yeah I'd prefer the paddle shifter to be fixed on the column.

Anyone good with Photoshop?

I want to see what an Impreza would look like with the Subaru badge missing from the optional sport mesh grille. Just plain mesh
