Default Ermahgerd - '14 Venetian Red Pearl 2.0i 5MT

Here's my Impreza, I picked it up last Friday afternoon. She's a 2014 Venetian Red Pearl 2.0i Touring with the 5-speed manual trans.



I don't have any other pictures right now because I've been pretty busy with work, but I'll be sure to get some more. I've got plans for her when the weather warms up, starting with:
  • WeatherTech All-Weather Floor Mats [Done Feb. 2014]
  • LED Dome/Map/Trunk Lights [Done Feb. 2014]
  • Enkei M52 wheels in Hyper Black [Done]
  • Perrin Slash-Cut Exhaust Tip [Done]
  • Clear vinyl film in the door sills to protect from scuffs. Might also do behind the door handles, and the front of the hood.
  • Outback fog lights [Done]
  • Tint [Done]
  • Smoked License Plate Covers [Done]
  • LED License Plate Lights [Done]
  • Rally Armor Mud Flaps
  • iJDMToy 18W LED Fog Lights
  • Red Dimmable LED Footwell Lights
  • VDC Kill Switch
  • OEM Kicker Tweeter Upgrade
  • Black Out OEM Grille / Sport Mesh Grille
  • 2015 WRX Trunk Spoiler
  • Vinyl Wrap Rear Valance
  • "i" logo emblem overlays
  • Partial debadge, and remove dealer sticker
  • H9 Headlight bulb conversion
  • Shift Knob
  • Projector HID Retrofit
  • 19m RSB
  • Double-Din Head Unit

Any suggestions on stuff to add to the list? I know a drop would be nice, but with our roads and winter conditions I feel like I'd rather have a bit more ride height, especially with the potholes we tend to see.




Here's a picture of my old car for posterity: 2004 Pontiac Vibe 5spd

Thanks! I love it so far. The clutch took a bit of getting used to, but I'm getting pretty good with it now. I've got big plans for it as soon as the weather warms up! The heated seats are amazing though with this Canadian winter.

Update:

I bought the front Weathertech mats, and I love them. Plan on getting the rear mat eventually, but I'm in no rush, because I very rarely have anyone in my backseat.



Also ordered these:


Enkei M52 - Hyper Black, 16" wheels

I had a set of the 52's on wrx for a while and I loved them. I got them in the flat black though. There in the basement now and will be going on my 98 rs when summer hits. Can't wait. What kind of tires are you getting with them?

The fact that you've kept the 52's for another project makes me think I'll be even happier with them long-term. Can't wait for all of this snow to melt so I can put mine on, too. Right now I'm just going to use the Avid S30's that came with the car, but when those are worn out I'll see if I can't find some Pirelli Cinturato P7's or something similar to replace them with.

Stock alloys will probably be getting Nokians for the winter.

Thanks!

Update: I've got a bunch of stuff pending, just waiting for the snow to melt so I can get the car detailed before I do anything.
-My wheels will go on probably in early April if it can stop snowing, they're pretty generous with salt on the roads here.
-Smoked license plate covers are waiting to go on.
-Splurged and ordered the 4" Perrin Slash-Cut exhaust tip online. Will do gloss black vinyl on the rear valance at that point, too.
-Windows will be getting tint as soon as it warms up a bit
-Outback fogs are here. I'll probably put them in when I put my wheels on, and get it all done at once.
-Once the car is clean, I'll throw some vinyl in the door sills to protect from scuffing.

I've ordered my Rally Armor mud flaps, albeit a bit late.. I found a paint chip on my rear passenger door today. I'll have to get some touch up paint and get a good coat of wax on. Perrin tip came in the mail.

Installed:

Got her cleaned and detailed yesterday, excuse the cell phone pictures. Proper pics will follow after I get my wheels on this weekend. Hopefully my RallyArmors will be in by then too. Also switched the dealer plate frames for something a bit more subtle.

Wheels and Outback fogs are installed:

Enkei M52, 16" Hyper Black with the original all-seasons. Wheels were a bit wider, so the tires are slightly stretched. I'll go with 215's next time.




With Specter's 2.5i.


Only need tint and I'll be ready for summer!




Little glare never killed anyone:


Last but not least, my "I wish I had a turbo" keychain:


And here's my other new ride, my Giant Roam 2:


Cheers

Upgraded Kicker Tweeters. I got them on ebay for about $120. The install took about 15 minutes, and the difference is night and day. Highs are super crisp now, I had to turn down the treble. Best bang for the buck upgrade in my opinion.




The old vs the new:
