How much would you be looking to get for the roof racks and/or sub? I will send you a PM also.

Been looking at these and Subaru seems to have made it impossible to get what I want...

I like the strake kit on the Sport models, would look great with the front lip and rear spoiler on the hatch.

Apparently it's IMPOSSIBLE to get the Sport with a Manual and a Moonroof. Why are these two options mutually exclusive? Any ideas?

My '06 2.5i appealed to me because I have all the visual stylings of the WRX (minus the hood scoop) but I get better mileage and I don't have to run premium. I test drove the 2.0i and the CVT just drove me nuts...I have an auto now but I like at least feeling the gears. The CVT felt sluggish compared to the auto trans in my 2.5i

Seriously not fair that Canadians get all the great options...I hear you guys can get Pearl White with a black interior too....that's it I'm moving north!

I'm from Wisconsin, I have no problem reading/understanding Canadian.

What gear ya in der? You're really giv'n'r!

3rd gear eh?

I need the hatchback so I can put a couple two-four's of brew in the back and still have room for the dog, dontcha know!

(apologies to Canadians in advance for any stereotyped impersonations that took place in this response, they were all purely for entertainment I assure you,)

I think the cost is like 5-6k more than ours, for a moonroof that just isn't worth it for me. I do wish I had leather however

Still totally, completely, and wholly factory stock. But sitting on top of Mt. Washington.

(I had a clearer shot with my dSLR, but the iPhone shot, below, hid the dirt better)

Awesome shot! My '12 Sport is completely stock too and I have no shame posting photos of it so no worries haha. This is Mt. Washington, NH right?

Thanks, I love the way they turned out.

For some reason, the sedan spoke to me more than the hatch when I was at the dealership

Thanks! Yes, Mt. Washington, NH. It was my first time to the White Mountains- that whole area is beautiful.

Yep, the Enkei Raijins only come in 18". They come in silver, gunmetal and black. These are the gunmetals. I'm not that familiar with tire size to be honest, so I just requested these wheels with these tires and this is what they suggested at the local tire/wheel store where I bought them and had them installed. They are Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 in 225-40-18. If I go to Tirerack and input the Impreza with the Raijins, the tire size they recommend is the same so not sure if others would fit. In the Impreza tires and wheels thread though, another user mentioned that they had these wheels with 235-45 and they didn't experience any rubbing so that may work for you.

Thanks for the compliments. Next step is to get some tinting and then I'm pretty much done, don't want to spend too much.

Interesting the tire shop recommended these tires since they do look a little stretched. What is the width of the wheel? The stock wrx wheels are 17x8 with 225 tires but they do not look stretched. Are your wheels 18x9?

Remember that some tires are thicker than others example a fallen Ziex 215 is similar width to a 205 so that tire may looked more stretched because of the brand

I think the wheels are 18x8 but I'm not entirely positive. I will check.

Confirmed with the tire/wheels guy, the wheels are 18x8. The tires aren't stretched:

"The Michelin AS/3 has the rim protector that flanges outwards, giving the mild illusion that there is a stretch... but definitely not a stretched tire

18x8 with 225-40-18 is a pretty square setup"

Well there you go. I agree 225 wouldn't normally look stretched on an 8" wheel. Never heard of rim protectors before, good to know.

Even if it was stretched, its not a huge deal, it just adds more stress to the rubber but you cant get into much trouble with 148hp.
