Default First time pics of my humble 16 Limited WRX, look inside!!!

Traded in the 14 BRZ SWP premium for 16 SWP WRX Limited on 07/07/15. Originally I have no plan to mod the REX but coudn't resist the mod bugs this past winter and 6 months later here we are. Pics below are of the BRZ return to stock with the soon to be my WRX at the dealer. Alot to cover and squeeze in one post but below are random pics of the mods I have done within the last two months.

Waiting for wheels and tires to come to finish off the exterior, WRX sideview mirrors turn signals mod, some interior enhancement and custom badges. Car has all LED upgrade lighting throughout interior and exterior no more of that ugly stock yellowish halogen lights that came from Subaru and as far as go fast bits, the car will stay stock for now except for Turbo XS hybrid BOV This will be the last set of pictures:

Where did you get the floor mats and dials(or whatever you call them)? Looking nice!

Stahhhp. I'm getting jealous it looks so good, especially with the red accents everywhere.

Looking good. Out of curiosity, how much "worse" is the handling of the WRX vs. the BRZ? I guess a better way to word it is, how much better handling did the BRZ have?

BRZ is a driver's car stock for stock BRZ hand down even with the coilovers on the WRX, the BRZ still handles better and felt more agile, nimble and of course lighter. The only thing lacking is power.

Very few and I mean very few people on this site can even push the bra to its limit to even mention the need for more power. In a straight line maybe yeah but thats not what the bra was meant for. I would chose a bra of a 15+ wrx all day. Just my opinion.
