Not sure where you live, but on the east coast $32k for a loaded Limited is a pretty damn good deal.

You're right - was really hoping it would by some magic or another be a bit warmer. But it's currently only 28 outside.

Wish I had a garage!
Damn you city living

Pinnacle Ceramic 40% tint film for the sides and back.

Still looks a bit hazy from the install, but should clear up over the next couple of days.

Thx man.

Curious - Where do you live / what was your price?

$32k doesn't seem that bad for a loaded limited in the east coast. But you're the second person to say it's a steep price.

Looks great! Can't wait to see more pics when you get them. The one closeup pic you have really shows a nice contrast between the black wheels and the sparkle in the WRB.

Just as a comparison my order was also for a WRX Ltd 6MT, mine is in Ice Silver Met. and here is a quick list of my options:

WRX Sport Pkg
Interior Illumination (Red)
Center Armrest
Auto Dimming Mirror
Kicker Speaker Upgrade (not sure this will be all that great, but thought it might be an ok stop gap until a real upgrade)

My price in the Denver area was $33,809. I don't feel like I got a great price or anything, but it didn't have any dealer markup, which most dealers in the area tack on a 2k markup, and in the end I think the numbers will work out to be where I need them to be.

So all in all I'm pretty happy with it so far. Its not here yet, so I know it can still fall through, but definitely hoping it all works out.

Thx man - really happy with the car so far.

Do you have an eta on your order? The wait was killing me!!

I'm really interested to see what you think of the speaker upgrade. Seriously not a fan of the stock ones - they sound.. Well.. Hollow. At least to my untrained ears.

The red illumination kits guna look really badass against the Ice Silver! Definitely take pics of that for us when she arrives.

I've been told around the 15th of December. Yep, the wait is brutal. I received the weathertech floormats I ordered from Subispeed just yesterday. I can't decide if that helped or made it worse.

Yep, I'll take some pics and post 'em up. Just need to read up on how to do that.

ClearBra (Xpel Ultimate) - full front bumper and mirrors, partial hood and fenders.

The installer did a fantastic job, can't even tell it's there!!
Worlds better than the ClearBra that was installed on my previous car.

Took it back to the dealership to get it done. Hard to believe I know, but they did a great job. They call in a professional detailer who comes in every few weeks to do the Xpel installs.

Yep, looks fantastic! The clearbra is the one thing I'll probably spring for when we're finalizing the deal for my car. After having cars that don't have it, compared to ones that have, it definitely does protect the front of the car from road crud and little rock chips.

Late night install.. In a wet, open and dimly lot parking lot. Oh the joys of city living haha.



Was able to get the HTAuto lip and rear splats on - will get to the sides another day.


Actually..
Did anyone have trouble getting the far right/left side push clip of the lip (closest to the wheel wells) to line up?
There's a piece of plastic from the underbody that's preventing me from getting the lip over enough to push the push clip through the holes. Left them off for now, but would obviously like to secure them ASAP.


Also something interesting happened when jacking the front right side. My rear tire (as well as front) lifted off the ground. Never seen that happen before w/ any of my previous cars...

Are you talking about the rear spats holes? the closest to the wheel wells are the worst and are a bitch to get in but it's doable. And the car is just that stiff that it lifts up both sides

The rear spats went on relatively easy for me.

I'm having trouble with the last hole on the right/left side of the front lip.

I can't get those lip holes to align w/ the body holes. Seems like theirs a piece of plastic from the underbody (on both the right/left side) that's in the way.

The black piece? I think you have to line up 2 holes there
