Default Squattro's 2015 GBP WRX Thread

I don't plan on doing too much (I say this now) but I want to keep a record of everything! I was torn between ISM, DGM and GBP. And as I have owned past cars both in silver and dark grey I decided that it was time for a new color change. Couldn't be happier with the GBP color!

Ordered 9/2. Delivered 10/25. Picked up 11/5. 6spd Premium in GBP, no other options. I really just wanted the fogs, sunroof and heated cloth seats.

My salesman emailed me when it arrived. Oddly, I was on vacation and had to wait till I got back. Funny that I received the email and notification as soon as I landed at my destination!

Dealer pics:




Picking it up on 11/5:




A few days after picking it up when it was a clear and sunny day.




Exterior:
PIAA Plasma ION Yellow H16 Fogs
OLM 6k HIDs low beams
OLM LED front turn signals
Diode Dynamics Cool White LED reverse lights
Diode Dynamics Tail as Turn signals harness*
*My plan for the harness is to make the turn signals just a reflective housing with red overlays. No current function on them.
Prolightz LED license plate bulbs (these run close to a 5k look)
Custom C-light LED strip (WIP, as I am still gathering materials and testing different LED lights and setups)
Totsubo License plate mounts
Hella Supertone horns with Subimods V2 custom harness and bracket.
Rally Armor flaps
JDM OEM Front grill
JDM rear fog light with OE fog switch


Interior:
Diode Dynamics LED trunk light strip (closer to 6k look)
TapTurn flasher relay
Prolightz LED interior bulbs (dome, map, visors) (these run close to a 5k look)
JDM +08 STI Dual Black center console box
JPM Coachworks Alcantara shifter boot
JPM Coachworks Alcantara ebrake boot



Engine:
NA at the moment


Body:
Bluebat red rear turn signal overlay

Got my Diode Dynamics 'Tail as Turn' harness in today, way ahead of schedule!. Such an easy and cool new mod to do! I decided not to run the original turn signal as a running light, didn't look right with the LED bulb I had in there.

Disconnected that part and just have the turn signal moot right now. And put on Bluebat rear red overlays.

I'll post pics and video tomorrow.

Red tail light over lays. Right now, the original turn signal is a reflective tail light. No bulb/function.

Did you have any issues with the brake as turn signal install (assuming you got the Diode Dynamics harness). I installed mine last night and the turn signals blink rate was like there was a bulb out. I hadn't installed the LED bulbs yet and the hazards blinked at the usual rate. Just curious if you had the same issue?

If I'm not mistaken, you need an LED flasher module to run with the harness since you're using your tail lights as turn signals and they are LED.

Looks great! I don't think you will be able to keep it stock for to much longer.

Ha, thanks Carlton.

I saw the good deal on Rally Armor flaps from AutoAnything and placed an order last week for black with silver logo. Should be getting them tomorrow.

GBP is growing on me, I'd like to see it in person as well.

Also, nice custom plate

Installed the Hella horn kit and Subimods V2 harness and horn bracket that I ordered months ago!

Pretty simple install and the harness is down right awesome and constructed tough! No exposed metal anywhere, everything sealed tight.

Taking the bumper off was easy, just remember to unplug the turn signal and fog light connections and the bumper comes right off. I'd say the hardest part was taking off the damn bolt off the factory Hella horns bracket, I had to put it in a vice!

Bumper off:


Horns on:


There are thousands of places you can mount the relay and tuck the wires, here's where I did mine:
I believe these are the radiator support bolts/bracket(?). Wires going up are to the horn, wire going to the left goes to the factory OEM horn connection.


This is where the horn harness connects to the factory connection. I just tucked everything back in that frame hole:


This is where the harness runs to the battery for power. Secured it so it doesn't move around:


Looking down the radiator. Two wires going up are the horn connections.

Do you have a shop you do your work at? I see you had a lift for the hella install.

How good of a deal did you get on the mud flaps? I see they offer them for $172.99/shipped on the AutoAnything website. Better than that?

I have a lift in my garage

The mud flaps I got from AutoAnything last month when they had their 30% off $99+ sale, so I got a good deal on them. I would say wait till they go on sale if you are not in a hurry.

Damn! I'm jelly you have a lift in your garage!!

Yeah I'm not in a hurry. It's hard to justify around $172 (or so) shipped for them.

The best $3k I've ever spent. Yup, I was in the same state of mind for these flaps, pushing $200 for plastic

Nice color man!
This is actually my 2nd post, seeing as how I just put down a deposit for my in transit GBP Limited a few days ago!
Super glad I went with the Galaxy Blue Pearl...especially from how your pics are turning out.

Have you had any second thoughts on the Hellahorn color? Just curious.

Looks good! Looking forward to see future updates from you.

I hope someone post if that 30% off deal ever happens again. I will take advantage of that in a heart beat.

Thanks, I really do enjoy this color! I might paint them something else if the red ever starts to fade or get worn out, but I like the red color in the grill. I do plan on getting the JDM grill sometime soon, so I think they'll stand out even more.

If you sign up on AutoAnything.com, you'll get their offer emails all the time. Just have to be on the look out!

Hey! The car looks amazing. I just placed my order for a GB WRX!

That color looks great. Subbed for sure. Keep the mods coming.


Hopefully mine is a quick ship like yours was.

The new grill has grown on me. I do like it but I'm cheap and don't want to spend $200 on it (and also take the bumper off)

It complements the car a lot more and matches the grill patterns on the lower grill and fog light area housings.

I believe SMY Performance has the best pricing I've seen so far.
