Wow that's awesome! I'd love to upgrade to those one day. How do the side bolsters compare to the stock ones? It might deviate from your tan to black conversion but you should get an armrest extender. It feels so much better than the stock tiny one as well.

Night and day difference. The WRX seats are more stiff, hugs your entire back. They are also mesh/cloth so they breath very well in hot weather. I couldn't stand how hot the stock seats would get.

How would the armrest extension deviate from my conversion? Lol, they come in black! I have actually considered getting one but its kind of a "meh" sort of thing.

I have more on the top of my list then that but don't worry, I'm sure it's coming.

More to come later in the week..

Oh and did I mention the modding of the 04 Wrx will be underway come spring too?

Hmm, you just made me want a set even more lol. Well you already have the small one so it would be taking money away from other things like you stated haha.
What are you planning todo with the 04wrx?

If you can find a set, or even just the drivers seat you will be happy. What color is your interior?

First thing with the WRX is the hertz component speakers and alpine amp I have waiting to go in. New wheels/suspension and probably a tune. Right now it sits bone stock. It is my girls daily driver so it all depends what she wants.

I also got the extended bolts because I have the first gen fat oem cross bars. The bolt hanging on the end is the standard size.

Hey, need some information. Will a 2010 WRX STI hood fit on a 2008 Impreza 2.5i?

Fancyfootwork, I assume seats out of a 2010 WRX will bolt up in our car as well without problems, correct?

Thanks guys, looking to buy these parts ASAP, just need confirmation from you guy's, the seasoned veterans!

Why? I don't think it has any benefit.

Because Subaru paint goes right to the bare metal, pretty soft paint it seems. The car I purchased is covered in rust spots from rock chips on the front hood. Was able to source a '10 WRX part car with 18k on it.... i'm sure the hood is in much better condition than mine. I'm not looking for a "benefit" or performance out of a hood. This car is nothing more then my DD.

If I ever had a car for the ladies, it would be the Audi/Merc that are stored for the winter.

Will have pictures of my 2.5i by next week to contribute to this thread, thanks again to those who have been answering all my Subaru noob questions.

So I remember hearing a few of you complain about a squeaking clutch pedal on here. I have been having that sound occur for a few month's now and I just discovered this thread:http://www.wrxforums.com/forums/37-c...b-linkage.html
I have an appointment tomorrow at a local stealership, I hope everything goes smoothly
