I love the look of the black when its all clean and waxed. Too bad it never lasts too long. The swirls are a piss off though

yeah DGM is hot. I never really liked silver or greys, but that colour has a certain depth about it.

Yep no to black subaru. Comes from years and years of ownership and personal experience.

I spent maybe $1500+ this year on repainting and detailing, due to a combination of neglect and depression (seeing the paint so faded and scratched, why bother?). It now looks brand new, and it is a lot of work to keep it like that.

If I were to do it over again from day one, I would get the car completely rewaxed and sealed brand new from dealership. The paint itself is so thin, but I guess we got what we paid for in other departments!

But but but... the black looks so purrrrrty...

I will admit, the dgm is growing on me. A bit. Given that my last car was a black one, though, I still have feelings for black.

Especially a properly cleaned and maintained black.

Thanks, I appreciate the compliment. Especially since most people just think it's stupid loud, or that I've copied the GReddy/insert other brands here.

I'm a pretty die hard JDM fan, but for a taiwan made exhaust, the welds are awesome, the sound is good, and the price can't be beat!

Subie clear is retardedly soft... This coming from me doing two details in a month, and almost having it burn... I'm no pro detailer, but I've done my fair share, and my friend's done some stuff for ferrari of vancouver.

But yeah, the new black is stupid because it has too much green in it. I would have gone for it otherwise. Plus we're all privvy to that Richmond Subaru incident.

Agency power is really nice too! one of my friend has it mated with the Agency Power DP. He's running a similar tune to mine on his SWP GR as well :P

Followed, then was followed by, a silver FXT, at around 10am eastbound on Hwy 10. Sorry, I'm not conversant on model years, so I couldn't say. However, I will say that I was too busy admiring the vehicle from Surrey all the way into Langley to wave at the fellow (I feel bad about that, but then again, there weren't many opportunities to wave either).

The fellow continued on eastbound, while I took the exit to go to Hwy 1 to check out the new Port Mann Bridge.
