Those wheels look really great on that car. How much were they? Looks great for a base.

I know the feeling, i had a premium available on the lot, same color, ready to go. But the wheels, fogs and side rails sold me, i waited the few weeks to find one.

Ugh, this thread is killing me. Debating whether or not I should get a new Impreza (practical) or a new WRX (fun). Some great pics in this thread are making my decision harder!

I was in the same position at first, but I went with being practical. Gas prices is not getting better and I have kids to think about. It all boils down to money. My only problem now is waiting for my dealer to call saying my car is here lol..

Get both! lol I would be more inclined to stick with the practical side. Gas prices are up and who knows how high they'll go.

The Impreza is still no rocket ship, but it still gets up and goes when you need it to and feels more planted at 80 than just about every other car I've driven.

If that helps you with your decision. Plus the WRX is being redesigned for 2013, do you really want the tail end of a model? Your brand new WRX will look 4 years old by fall.

+1
I wanted a WRX too... but gas prices strayed me away. And even if I wanted to be gangsta and get that premium gas, I rather wait for the next generation.

I was trying to decide between the 2.0i and the WRX, but with my insurance rates, gas prices, and the fact I'll probably want to keep this car when I start having children, the decision became easier. Plus I like the style better on the 2012 2.0i compared to the previous generation.

Not even just a little? That's quite odd, especially since most people can at LEAST appreciate better MPG on an AWD car. Do you care to explain your opinion on a PICTURE thread?

On-Topic: Cars are beautiful! I'm inspired!

For those with after market wheels. Did you guys have to get new Tire Pressure Monitoring system for your new tires and wheels? If so, how much?

Thanks

Yeah, and the only cars I've owned are a '92 Legacy and a '00 Impreza, so I'm sure the new Impreza will compare to those in terms of performance. I guess a part of me thinks that if I don't get a WRX now, I probably never will (at least for the foreseeable future)

I plan on going to a dealer tomorrow to test drive both, and after driving the WRX I'll probably want to buy it

Yup. Sport Limited can get it, but Sport Premium is stuck without Leather or Moonroof (at least from the factory... you can always have it added later aftermarket)

I saw a black 2012 impreza today with what looked like a GR style hatch spoiler. Looked so nice! Factory option?
