Hey all, I recently traded in my 2011 n/a impreza hatch for a '15 wrx . We went with the limited cvt and just added the all weather mats, trunk liner, and homelink mirror :-).
We went with the cvt since it will be a family car. I know some people think its all manual or nothin, but really the cvt is performing really well. Plus for a DD, its kind of nice to not have to worry about the clutch, especially in this crappy Seattle traffic.
First thing I noticed, was the handling. It is fantastic, the car really does sit flat in corners. Currently I am still in the break in period, but I will update this as more mods and changes happen.
We have had the car for about 2 weeks now, and I just am starting the mods. Would have done them sooner, but I ended up having my appendix removed, AND my car arrived a week early, it was pure torture. Luckily the wife offered to let me get all hopped up on pain meds and go pick it up on the weekend .


List of Completed Mods:

Tint: 5% rear/15%front

Debadge trunk, so just WRX remains

Swap out wheels to 11-13 sti bbs. Wrapped in Continental DW 245/40/18 for summer wheels.
Will use stockers as winter wheels wrapped in Michelin X-ice 3s.

Yellow lamin-x fog light film protectant

Swapped out fog light bulbs to these:
Amazon.com: Nokya Hi-power H8, H9, H11 LED Fog Light Bulb - Hyper Lime Yellow: AutomotiveAmazon.com: Nokya Hi-power H8, H9, H11 LED Fog Light Bulb - Hyper Lime Yellow: Automotive

Swapped out ugly amber turn signal bulb for a chrome one that flashes amber:

Interior LEDs: This has the map, dome, trunk, and license plate lights.
Zone Tech White LED Lights Interior Package for Subaru WRX STi (6 Pieces):Amazon:AutomotiveZone Tech White LED Lights Interior Package for Subaru WRX STi (6 Pieces):Amazon:Automotive

2 of these for the vanity lights.

BBS Centercaps: http://www.wheel-caps.com/servlet/th...-BBS%2C/Detail

Front plate spacers using nylon washers

Rokblokz Mud Flaps

And of course, the AWD Flat Bed only Towing Sticker. Really every Subaru should come stick with this, but for now, they dont. (pics below)


Future mods:



Trunk swap with STI

STI Exhaust

Hella Horns

Swap out High Beams with:

I actually got 2 of them from a member here on Nasioc a few years ago. I like it yellow since that really helps it stand out.
After a little research I found that it is best to put it right above your vin, since tow truck drivers typically write down your vin for their records.
Did a quick search, and here are a couple similiar stickers, which really every subaru should come stock with.

alternatively I bet if you get the image, someone on here could make a bunch of them.

Looks good!

Not sure if I'd go silver wheels or gold wheels. Regardless I like the way yours looks!

Thanks :-)
I was debating between gold and gunmetal, went gold since my winter wheels are close to a gunmetal.
Never considered silver though..

Finally gave her a bath after all this rain.
Here she is with tint, centercaps (finally), and nylon spacers for the front plate.

Thank you :-) I get compliments all the time from strangers on how pretty it is or how good it looks. Seen some 15s on here and it seems some people are just butchering them
Hella horns will be this winter once they have a bracket and harness developed.

Finally got some time yesterday to install my Rockblokz mudflaps
Although while removing my rear wheels, I found a screw in one of my tires
Luckily Discount was able to patch it
I ended up getting the shorter mudflaps, I believe they are 1.5" shorter, and my car is at stock height, with 245/40/18 tires.

Also ordered some led fog light replacements thanks to a $100 amazon gift card so those will be here soon

Here are some quick cell phone shots for now until I get the time to do some better ones.

Ground Level View







Rear mudflap near ground level view




I also pulled my flaps as far out and as far down as I could, the rears are both about 5.5"s ground clearance, and the fronts are both about 4.9''s ground clearance.

Front:
