Oh my. That looks really good.. What size tires you running? Stock 215's? They're only 17x7, right?

I fully agree. I'm pretty stoked with how it turned out. I put some new Pirelli tires on them. 205/50 r17 rated at 70k miles instead of the tires it came with which lots of people say they replace before 30k. Ya, they are 17x7.

Word. Wasn't sure if you retained the 215 size they came with. I really like this look..

I had a little different experience, BUT, got a partial refund. Wasn't too happy of their smart-a$$ email replies either. I MIGHT try them again though, simply because so many others have used them and had good luck. Mine may have just been a fluke.

Thanks flyboy. Here are a few more pics. After work I headed straight home and washed it all up. Hopefully the nice Tucson weather sticks around for more than a week.

There are only 2007, 2008, and 2009 for options when I go to the order page. I assume 2009+ is all the same, then?

How do you deal with the noise from the removable roof rack? Why not just take it, car looks better. I only take mine out when needed

I ordered mine as the 2009 SWP and it was the exact shade. As long as you double check your door paint code is the same as the one they have you should be fine. Let me know if you have anymore questions. Also I have pics posted up somewhere of my hatch with the shark fin installed, I'll find and repost them.

I use it for my roof box for snowboarding. I leave it on all winter because of that. In all honesty though, I don't notice the noise much. Tucson is set up weird and I only get on the highway once every few weeks. The rest is all city driving unfortunately.

I appreciate it Wes! It definitely looks different from when I first got it, largely in part to this forum.

I have a cvt and when I pulling into my drive way, there was a horrible smell. It smelled like a burning clutch. It was a 1mile commute to school in 25mph zones.

Anyone know wats up?

Checked under car, no sign of plastic bags or anything that would cause this smell..

It really smelled like a burning clutch, and I have an auto 2.0i....

O weird.. Maybe my AT oil temp light will go on soon, but still, it was just a 5-10min drive, in a 25mph zone..

Is this your first new car? Brand new cars often emit strange smells. I usually just refer to it as "new car burn-off". My car has had some odors coming from it as well that made me nervous, but every dealership mechanic I know says that people come in and complain about it constantly on new vehicles, and there's never a problem.

I don't think that should happen...I just got my 2013 Impreza not too long ago and I've never had that problem.

Thanks

Cool Why hello!

I've been looking through this thread for a couple days now - sure is a great resource! It's given me a bunch of great ideas. Here's a couple pics of mine so far:







I plan to tint the windows soon, and likely add the rear spoiler.
