Default Introduction And my '15 Impreza Sport

Hey guys, just wanted to take a second to introduce myself. I just traded in my '11 Legacy Premium on Saturday for the '15 Impreza Sport Premium. I only drove it one day then had to drop it off to have Commodore applied. May have been a waste of money but you live and learn. The demo impressed me, so maybe I'm a sucker. LoL Hopefully it will be completed and I can pick her up on Wednesday. Right now they gave me a '15 Forrester to drive. Here's a picture I took at the dealer of my car. I didn't have a chance to take any beauty shots yet.

Is that just film applied to your fogs ? I've been trying to figure out what I'm going to do with mine. In my Legacy I ran Nokya Hyper Yellows. I'm not too happy these use a 24watt bulb.

Yup, lamin-x yellow vinyl. I wanted to have a little extra protection and the yellow adds a nice contrast to the front end.

@Trick

15 bumper looks great with a mesh grille and that chrome blacked out. Definitely getting a 2015 bumper if I ever destroy mine.

Nice work making that front end look clean Trick. I've thought about grabbing the mesh grille but I can't justify dropping 200 bones on it. x_x

The Lamin-X is definitely in the near future.

Also OP, what is Commodore?

@Trick, what did you use to coat the chrome bits black? Plastidip? Looks great. The chrome pieces on my 6 week old car are already pitting...

Thanks guys. I just used plastidip, did 4 coats iI think. The chrome pieces are screwed into the surrounds from the back, just pop them off and go to town. Depending on how well this holds up I might have the pieces wrapped in vinyl.

The grill chrome also is removable if you wanted to take it out and paint it.

It is the OEM sport mesh grill with the emblem removed.

How did you remove that? Does it just snap off?

You have to remove the back plastic part, like 10 screws, then two screws behind the emblem and you're done.

Just a few pictures. Nothing exciting. First thing I'm going to do is window tinting.

I guess this forum doesn't like Carousel.

Lets try DropBox.

Looking good. I recognize that bridge. I'm also considering getting a white Impreza Sport and live in the DC area. Mind me asking what dealer you bought yours from? Was it a good experience?

My Valley Subaru in Staunton. I've been going to them for about three years now and they've always been great to me.

Got my order from SubiSpeed just a few minutes ago and I am extremely mad. Both items appear to be previously installed. The LED bulbs for my DRL Boomarang harness were taken out of their package and placed in the wiring harness prior to shipping and are covered in grease marks. The HP+ LED Low beam ballasts have scrape marks all over them also. I E-mailed them and am waiting for a response.

I'm not surprised, honestly. I've heard horror stories of SubiSpeed's quality.

I would take some pictures and get in contact with them asap.

Their response to my E-mail...

Quote:
These are not used parts and we do not sell previously installed items. The bulbs for the DRL harness are installed by us just for convenience sake. That is how they are all packaged and this is manually done in-house. The sockets for these bulbs are white and sometimes do get dirty/dingy. Nothing we can do about that.

For the HP+ bulbs, these do sometimes get scratches from manufacturing.

Send us some photos if you'd like, but again, we do not send out used parts. Exactly why we have the policy written up the way that we do.

If you feel like sending them back to us for a refund, you can certainly do that as well.

Regards,
-Yo
Am I being too picky ?
