Well, I wouldn't get a Base. I'm too much of a snob for that. haha

I'd want a hatch, Limited. Not sure what color, would prefer white or black, but not that ivory interior. Although... I might enjoy the constant paranoia of ivory leather. Anyone on here have the ivory leather? I haven't been following.

Default Flickering

HID and LED kit:


Did the HID's effect the DRL at all? My friend has a Lancer and when he put in his HID's his car started to flicker because of the DRL's.

Was this the same after installing the HID's?

UPDATE:

Okay, so I'm on my second day with this vehicle and I have to say I'm really enjoying it, despite the Base trim status. I really miss my USB plug-in, though, so I'm thinking at LEAST a Premium would be more suitable.

If I had an autostart I wouldn't care about All-Weather parts after my experience with my WRX. I do miss steering wheel controls. I keep rubbing my thumbs on the blank spots on either side of the center of the steering wheel. haha

My mom really liked it and commented on possibly getting one to replace the 2004 GMC Envoy that's steadily accruing miles. She LOVES the "burgundy" hazard button and open-feeling of the interior, especially behind the side mirrors.



The ivory-colored interior is DEFINITELY a no-go for Alaska. Completely inappropriate.

The acceleration of the CVT is different than what I'm used to, but the car does feel sporty and I actually enjoy the sound of the CVT "spooling", for lack of a better descriptive phrase.

I'm sure there are things I would tire of eventually, but the 2012 is a VERY practical car with great appeal. If I mature enough within the next month or so I might hold out for a 2013. Hopefully there are some slight changes that address some people's concerns.

I would love a black or white exterior with black leather interior. I'm starting to get tired of DGM and having people think it's black anyways.

Since having this car would be a compromise in itself, I'd go with CVT all the way. The appeal of this vehicle, for me, is gas mileage, so the CVT is where it's at.

Haha, yes. I was wondering when you'd ask. The other day my WRX was backed into by a tech at the Subie dealership. Nothing major, just scratches on the rear bumper. I have this Impreza until it's done.

Because he wired them wrong, I already gave you a diagram in the other thread.

the DRLs in the new Impreza are in the high beams, this will not have any effect on the low-beams.

So my fiance said she wants wrx but doesn't understand why they don't come auto. So I finally convinced her on one of these. Anyone have any pics of the sedan with some rims? Some sporty pictures if possible. It would be a great selling point from me to her. hahaha.

I'll take a look when I go out to my car in a few minutes but I'm pretty sure it's just because the picture was taken a little off center. I hope not. Now you have me worried.

Haha, ya, that's my little guy.

Did you remove the fog light housing and over lap it over the lens or did you just place them over the lens without having to remove the foglight housing? When I place it over the lense it doesn't seem like its a perfect circle. Any advice with installing them would be great.

Bout to put some Lamin-x on. They are not pre-cut. Any advice with installation?

I measured the circumference of the foglight to 3 inches and 2mil.

Did you remove the housing and put on the film or did you just do it and without having to remove the housing.
