^Thanks for the info, I got my bumper repair kit in the mail yesterday. I think I'm just going to take off the front bumper to fix it, thinking about it now it'd be nearly impossible to do a good job patching it since its on the bottom and behind the bumper.

Might be worth looking into. I've always loved the WRX's seats. Maybe since the new 4th Gen WRX looks to be based on an Impreza those ones would fit better. Oh well, my buddy with the WRX seats won't charge me unless I can get 'em to fit.

If they DO fit, I'll let you all know what we did to make it work. If not, I guess I'm in my stock seats until I think of something else.

^I would also worry about the airbag sensor in the passenger seat as well, I'm not sure if the WRX seats have this in them and if they plug directly into our cars

Excellent point. Regardless, I like tinkering with my car in uncharted waters. We'll see how this goes!

I hope they do. My seat back has been replaced already because of the squeaky spring issue & now the seat base has something going on. It feels like I'm sitting on a lighter or battery or Chapstick like shape/size. But it's under the fabric in the cushion. Someone mentioned the heating elements had come loose/unraveled/gathered in their seat. Maybe that's what it is. But it's getting to be a PITA to have the seat looked at so often in a fairly new car. I'm assuming it will only get worse.

These seats are definitely a PITA. literally.

Legal Issues < Nicer seats

Seeing how much Subaru loves to keep identical parts across vehicles in their line up, it would sure be nice if those SRS sensors were a straight plug and play deal.

Reverend, i'd love to see pictures if you're going to do a test fit.

As usual, NASIOC will be first on my list of posting my findings. I should have my exhaust all buttoned up, too.

This car has just been fun to work on. I love tinkering around with it!

Hey everyone. Its been a while! I'm all done with the move and to answer speculation, Subaru is still popular in Arizona. In fact, I just finished training today in my sales course at Camelback Subaru in Phoenix! If anyone you know in the area is looking to join in on the Subaru addiction send them my way for the nasioc discount and fifty bucks in your pocket!
Get this, our parts department also is a dealer for rally armor, kartboy, cusco, cobb, eibach, and more. How cool is that!?

Anyways, tint will be on real soon and I will post pics! Its good to be back, hope I didn't miss too much.

That's pretty sweet to hear scout now you can change from pa to az. I myself am also prepping to move though I am heading further north into the snow belt.

That sounds awesome, Scout! AZ is FULL of beautiful photo op spots. I expect a good set of pics from ya!

I'm gonna be trying some stuff out with those '10 WRX seats I got the other night. Front Drivers and Front Passenger are my focus... but he also gave me the back seats. I have to check connections, but there's a lot here that looks like it lines up. While I still doubt it'll still work, I'd be a fool not to check. I might be able to do a full seat swap by the end of this... which is cool to me.

Regardless of whether stuff works, I'm excited to tinker with it!

I have a rallitek license plate delete coming in. Where should I get the hardware to install it to the car, or does it already come included? Do I need standoffs to protect the paint?

Anyone know if there is a way to install a quick disconnect steering wheel on a 12' wrx without having check engine codes?

I know steering wheel removal write ups are on here a ways back. I remember seeing it when looking into the stalk style fog light switch. It was a link to a write up on a wrx. Hope that helps...?
