Those HID's look great! Any chance you could post some pics under the hood of the headlight housings and the HID ballasts (that I suspect are nearby...?)

Like someone else mentioned, if the ballasts are bolted to the back of the housings, us Americans (imagine a cowboy accent) might be able to order the parts for the Canadian model and bolt right up.

The quality is pretty good, the reviews I read were good, and they were cheap

Dark Gray Metallic Impreza Premium w/ CVT, Sport Mesh Grille, Moonroof and All Weather Pkg along with 17" alloy wheel pkg. I really love the car so far. I just wish it had the same power that my old 3.8L Grand Prix did! But oh well, the AWD is great, it's a sporty looking car, just hope the paint holds up - seems a lot of people aren't impressed with Subaru's paint!
The Sport Mesh Grille looks good on the sedan. Better than I thought. I'm part of the 5-door crowd too....

I got the Sport Limited in DGM and the Sport Mesh Grille, although I'm still waiting to take delivery but I'm sure it will look awesome!

Got the tint done, so far i love this car, my first subaru, im really happy with it, ive always wanted to enter the hot hatch game, there are a lot around town...civics, focus'... lmao... ive been getting some heat about this being a "girls" car, granted i live in an area that if you dont have a civic or integra that scrapes the ground and farts than you arent cool... i mean i bring my 69 torino i have to their meets they have, its well restored, they act like its not even there or ill get the dbag ask "hows the mpg on that?" among other dumb questions... like it matters... BUT that just shows you where these people are at (sorry small rant) but i love the looks and feel of these cars, but here are some pictures of my "girly car" tint and no tint, plan on getting a couple things still, mostly waiting for the rally armor UR flaps that are in pre production

And the addiction begins.....

Don't worry man, It is a girly car. It means you have a greater appeal to woman than those Vtec's

Hello all, new kid on the block with my first ever Subaru, and lovin' it so far. Went for the satin white pearl, sport mesh grill. Kinda wish I had ordered it with the under spoilers but oh well. 35% tint on the rear windows and hatch.
Ordered mid-January, delivered March 21. Totally worth the wait! Only bummer is the car arrived 3 days /after/ I got back from a sick snow storm up in Big Bear. Doh!

Is anyone thinking about running Linea Corse LeMans in 18x8.5 +45? I'm wondering if the car is lowered a bit, say half an inch to an inch, will these rub using 225/40/18? Could also do 215's I suppose.

Loving the SWP blackandcode! Can't wait for mine to get here!

Default I'm soo jealous with you guys

I wish the dealers here in Sacramento would hurry up and get some cars in. I wanted to get a manual trans. in white or silver on the premium model. But all I could do is look at you guys pics for now. Anyway anyone here got springs and maybe a custom exhaust yet? I dont even know how a new muffler would be mounted on the hatchback since there is no cut out on the bumper, I guess just hidden like the stock?

Thought I should ask the experts... Anyone know if there are smoked tail lights available for the 2012 Impreza 5 Door? A friend just got her's and that's what she's asking about. I'll need to share everyone's pics on this thread to help her with her styling tastes!

Thanks for the help!

Id say buy a vinyl off eBay for cheap, and make sure she likes it that way, since its more reversible. Vinyls are like $6 shipped off eBay too.

I would have gotten white if I could have gotten it with a black interior...

Just got home from picking mine up! Love it so far(even though I only drove it 8 miles)

They owe me a hood deflector which I ordered with the car in addition to the other accessories. I also ordered the rear bumper applique, cargo seat back protectors, console tray, and shock sensor. Also, the spoiler has damage on it so they ordered a new one.

Here are some pics including a close up of the spoiler and sunroof deflector incase anyone wanted to see.
