I took some more pics I'll post when I'm on my computer and not the app. Wish it would let me post pictures!


I will say, the reason i did white was the interior. It's really nice. I am worried about the seats getting dirty, but I'm hoping to take good care of them. If you have kids I would NOT choose the ivory since its basically white.

Also, no tiny yet. Making an appointment Monday. Did get the roof rails in so I'll post pics of that as well.

I am very glad I did the sport limited. The leather steering wheel and shifter make a big difference to me. Also living in the mountains for college makes fog lights a must.

So far liking the car a lot!!

Let's try this. Boring and stock, but this is the inside for everyone who wants to see it

It's not the picture of my car but it's the very same dash.


The center dash of the Canadian sport package is quite different.


Once you open the door you always see that "Welcome Subaru" center dash. Also the AC & Heater panel seem different as I just have to adjust exactly what temp I want in the car. It does AC or heater automatically.

The display for the command of the AC & heater is just left of the center display dash. It was confusing at first. Maybe I'll make a video of how it work.

You guys don't get a fancy HD radio in the Sport package? I think I like the white gauges on the US version a little more. Is your top dash display a little different? It actually displays graphics?

The fancy HD radio is only available on the limited package in Canada(to upgrade you have to sell the radio(as used) & buy a new one.). There's no actual option for upgrade. The Limited Package is near 30k in Canada. With that money it's better to get another car than the Impreza.

Yep, it show graphic on the top display. When you enter the car it show "welcome Subaru".

So the top display is cool, but illiterate? Shouldn't it say "Welcome TO Subaru", or "Welcome, eh" or Address you by your name? Got a picture of the greeting? I think that's cool.

I find it odd that it happens because I have never noticed that type of noise in any other car I have owned or driven in. from a 2001 Nissan to 3 other 2012 vechicles dont have the power loss and noise when the A/C is on. Maybe initially when turned on, but not on and off every 30 seconds.
Whenever the noise occurs - A/C compressor coming on/off - I feel a loss in power in the accelerator and engine. Gets pretty annoying when that happens every 30 seconds. Sometimes music doesn't even cover the sound.
Went to Subaru and they say its normal...I say its annoying and shouldn't be happening. Does not make my drive enjoyable at all.

Wow. That blue is AMAZING. I was on the fence about that color or the red, but, wow, blue just scored some major points!

Car looks excellent, sir! Good work!

Thanks, I'm super happy with the color. I was on the fence between it and ISM but I have absolutely no regrets.

Which wax do you use? Also did you clay?

I used Meguiar's Gold Class liquid wax. I didn't clay since the car was pretty much brand new and there weren't any particles to remove with it. Those pics were taken about a week after the wash & wax, so it was actually a little bit dirty, but it doesn't show in the pics.

Canon Rebel XTi with 50mm f/1.8 lens at f/2.8. I punched up the contrast a bit in Lightroom and added a bit of vignette, but otherwise untouched.

The added magic of the right lighting at the right time of day, from the looks of it.

Great pix! & great use of a prime lens... works perfect in this setting. Did you do anything to your brakes/calipers? Or do they just pop in this lighting? Looks mighty fine gfx!
