Just got done with the first full detail on my new Impreza. The dealership I picked it up from did a terrible job on the delivery detail.

Here's a few more pics. This one shows the two tone better:











This just shows how crazy the weather is here; Sunday last week was in the 70s, then Monday (when I went to pick up the car) it started raining, Tuesday we got 2-4 inches of snow, Wednesday it started warming back up, and today it is back in the 70s and not a cloud in the sky.

Thanks! These pics were taken at the famous Red Rocks Amphitheater and park, which is just down the road from where I live. The view over the roof rack is of the amphitheater itself.
Also, I'm loving this car! Well worth the wait on the order.

I have had my Impreza Sport Premium for about 2 weeks now. I wanted to dress it up a bit so i had the dealer order me Front under spoiler, Rear Aero splash kit and Front Mesh Grille. They had quoted me install prices before they ordered and it went like this. Front spoiler installed $325.45, Rear Aero splash guard $225.68 and front mesh grille $292.72 which totaled out to $843.85..He also had told me they were giving me 15% off the list price and the number i just listed reflect 15% off plus install prices WELLL i arrived and he handed me the order sheet which had alllllll the net prices on it ( what the dealer pays) Which i dont think he knew was on there.

Well this is what the net prices look like:
E2410fj000wu- Front under spoiler List-$333.00 Net- $250.00
J1010fj950wu- Aero Splash kit List $199.00 Net- $129.35
J1010fj000wu- Front Mesh Grille List-299.49 Net-194.67


Ok when i saw this i said ill take these home and install them myself and that i wanted to pay the Net prices. Parts guy said no at first but i had another appt setup for window tinting at the dealer that they forgot to make so after further pestering they gave it to me all for net prices and saved 269.83

Well its been a busy after noon in the Garage and here are some before and after pics I also left off the sideskirt Aero guards because i thought they made the side to busy

BEFORE:






AFTER:







It was a Pretty easy install. the only pita was the front mesh grill. the whole front bumper needed to come off. It made me kinda nervous at first with pulling the bumper off a brand new car. The instructions missed a few self tapping things Subaru uses but they can all be seen if you know what to look for.

Sick shots up @ Red Rocks. I love that place. Love the OBP/DGM dual tone too. It's the only dual tone I like on these new '12s.

Agree, the black two tone looks the best, but I can see how some people like the other colors for the two tone, they're just not for me.

I wanted to get a shot of it in the tunnel near the entrance, or at least next to it, but there were some choppers and some biker babes having a photo shoot there.

Yup, that's the one (never seen the concert, but it's a pretty famous venue) I live less than 10 miles from it, but strangely enough, I've never seen a concert there at all.

That's a good idea, maybe a project for later. I think my badge would look good with the blue turned to black, i'd probably leave the stars silver though.

Yes it would definitely look good on the dark gray. I did it because it was the only silver on my car, all the other plastic in front is black. I do think the stock grill looks good on the ice silver and white cars though.

You should try, saw Chicago there last year and the way the theater is built makes it sound amazing! or try Movie on the Rocks this summer.

Thanks for the pix, i really want the obp/dgm 5sp combo but not sure if i can do without a sunroof like on the loaded Premium...

With plans to install a rear camera, i wanted to investigate a little.

This is the grommet for the camera and there's clips for the cable, but it's not prewired like the 2011 Forester with the same headunit as the Sport Limited.

Car looks awesome! You got all the exterior options. I got everything except the strakes and the sport grill.
