I baked the headlights and took out the amber clear pieces, search the forum, I found headlight baking DIY on this forum.

GUIZE!!!

Earlier today, Subaru announced the 2015 WRX will be at the LA Auto Show. And it's based on our current body style. So far, only mock images of sedans. But if you dig a bit, there's variations of the wagon too. And the STI sedan is hidden as well.

This is great news as we'll definitely have lots of options for aftermarket support much quicker this way.. And hopefully some dope seats to bolt in. haha

Might need to upgrade my wagon in a couple years if this pans out.. They BETTER make a wagon version again..

I'm thinking, maybe I should get winter tires, but I don't have the room, and now I'm looking at public storage options. Damn you internet, I just had appendix surgery, I can't afford this right now.

But maybe I should get winter tires.

Anyone who is sitting on the fence about winter tires should get them. Scour the Craigslist ads, and you're likely to find a sweet deal (possibly already mounted on wheels, too). So it won't be too expensive. And don't forget--while your winter tires are installed, your summer tires aren't wearing out. So your summers will last longer. And then, when you dump the car, you can sell the winter tires and get much of your money back.

At the end of the day, winter tires aren't as expensive as they initially seem. You get most of the money back in the long run.

Autoblog .com has an article about the new XV crosstrek hybrid . They say it has extra sound proofing in the footwells,under the front seats, pillars and roof. Also it has a thicker floorpan. I hope this makes it to the rest of the Impreza line as the cars are noisy inside.

I believe LeftLaneNews or maybe Caranddriver indicate some of the changes will be applied to 2014 cars. It isn't very clear regarding if that has already happened. 2014 XV 5 speeds come with underhood sound insulation now, it is quite possible other areas of the car are quieted down as well...

Are you sure about this information? I sure hope they have a hatch in the new WRX.

I'm not just sure, I'm HIV Positive.

But seriously, just talked with a Subaru Rep today when showing off the XV Crosstrek Hybrid. He said Japan is getting the 5-Door. The US is getting the 4-door... and that he wouldn't be surprised if the 5-door came back soon, although he couldn't confirm any details on that. Just his own speculation about it's return. But yeah, no 5-Door for US fans for now.

averagewhiteboy, have you cleared out your messages yet??

I will most certainly wait for the hatch version. It's the only way my wife will let me buy a sports car plus I love them.
