Looks great!

I keep seeing people recommend shifter bushings, how much of a difference does it make on a brand new car?

Make shifting shorter and feel sportier.


ALOT. Any manual transmission car has good bushings, but the travel on it is alot getting from 1 to 2nd 3rd to 4th etc.

I've been looking around and I'm trying to figure out if I can put the RallyArmor Mud flaps with the aero kit on my Sport Premium. Or if I have to take them off in order to put the mud flaps on.

Also, if I do need to remove the aero kit, do you guys think that it looks better with the aero kit or the Mud flaps.

Thanks!

At least one person has both flaps & aero splash guards on. There's pix either here or on the 2012 Impreza Thread. Another mentioned on the Aftermarket Thread I believe that he had to take the side molding/strake kit off his sport to mount his Rally Armor flaps. Hope this helps.

I personally like the look of the flaps better than the aero guards; the aero guards seem useless to me.

I got them off of Amazon from this seller:

Pretty much any festoon 31mm bulb will fit. The LEDs from this seller are white with a slight blue tinge. Turning on both maps and the dome makes it look like daylight inside its so bright.

Quick note on install, the LEDs are pretty much drop-in, but do require bending the contacts a bit to make the slightly larger festoon bulb to fit.

About the power, Not much you can do at the moment as third party companies haven't made much, but a local i know said he removed the back part of the grille, which induced more cold air into the engine. His performance and MPG went up.
Yup you guessed right it was the Monument Valley loop. It did get a bit bumpy at times

Would the slight mod of the grille work even if I have the sport mesh grille installed?

Ebay? If so, what was the seller name.

I don't want to get trick into buying cheap crappy ones.
Yup got em off eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/330736509998...#ht_3518wt_922

These are the same ones being sold here for $45 (http://store.ijdmtoy.com/9005-9006-L..._fog_sku41.htm) as far as I can tell. Shipping was much quicker than what they state as well which was a plus.

LEDs Straight drop-in although keep in mind your high beams won't really work due to the drastic reduction in light output (but they do still flash if you need them to get people's attention). I never use my highs anyways so not a problem.

Lol. Almost bottomed out there

Sorry I wouldn't know as I dont know how the mesh grill and the standard grill are constructed in the back. But from the looks, you should be getting the same results with the mesh grille.

Default Upgraded Fogs yes!

I posted earlier with pics of my hid fogs in yellow. They got too hot in the stock housing (causing slight melting, baaaad) so I finally custom fitted some HID bi-xenon projector lens w/angel eyes into the bumper. Took some time to make brackets, position it correctly and wire it so it worked the way I needed it. But I like how it turned out. I can actually USE the fogs now! Theyre at 6000k to match my headlights. Here is a shot of the DRLs w/the angel eyes on. (sry about the bad qual photo. Ill try to get some better ones of the lights when i get some time)

I have them installed and love them. The aero guards did have to be removed and double sided taped back on. Be prepared to have some on hand when you get them. Also, you'll have to cut a small hole to let the inside mounting bracket's bolt hole to be exposed in order to mount the flap. I suggest removing the rear wheels while the car is properly mounted on jack stands. Here is a quick picture. Thanks!

The Newest member of our Family





I was surprized to find out the car has the hill holder clutch thingy...meaning when u stop on a hill, you take your foot off the break and it holds the brake for up to 2 seconds or untill it feels the car starting to move forward. Good for the wife !

After Putting on some new rims, a light came on. "honey grab the book, check out what the squigly dick with balls light is !" " oh thats the tire pressure monitoring system light, what is that?"

For anyone interested, I got it for base price, $17,495. The strake kit, side door ding moldings, exhaust tip cover and floor mats were an extra like 350 bucks. So with inspection and a full tank of gas it was JUST over 18 grand....not bad. DO not pay for ****ing delivery fees and all the bull****.

The car rides absolutely FANTASTIC. Verry smooth acceleration. The 5 speed shifts like a typical subaru transmission (clunky as hell) But is a pleasure to drive. Its surprizingly faster than I had thought it would be. great car, the whole family is psyched !

My only quirk is the base model does NOT have cruise control ! This drives me nuts. Anyone know if there are any kits out there? I would love to just swap in the entire new steering wheel with controls and everything...

Hey I've been getting into modding my 2012 DGM Impreza and I thought I would post some pics. Ive gotten some 20% tints, Strake and Aero Kit, Sharkfin Antenna, K&N Box filter, Sti 19mm RSB. More to come as upgrades become available. Looks great, burns oil, and has a squeaky seat...but at least it looks good

I like the aero splash guards on the white impreza, but my dgm they looked not so good. i removed them and plan on ordering ra flaps. cleaner, simpler, imho looks better. you are technically supposed to not run them together, to answer your question, on ra site.

My friend has the ISM sport and it looks great with the aero splash guards but i think the RA guards look better on my DGM sport.

Yep I was, you're welcome! Yea let me know. I only kept the aero guards on because I think they help complete the consistency with the side skirts. It was a bit of a pain adapting them but in the end I'm happy.
