Just a note to anyone dropping everything right now to come look. we won't have one available to show until its been through the shop. that means you'll have to wait until one is outside before you can check it over.

i'll post up some pics once i get home and resize them.

and the wrx hatch looks a lot better in person, though i'm still not a fan of the rear taillights. the rest of it looks nice. i especially like the new radio and the aux in and 12 v located inside the console!

The WRX front end looks great unlike the Outback. Ugh.

No chrome/grill or silver plastic lip FTW!
