Default Finally made the Subie swap

After owning 2-door Chevrolet's my whole life I finally made the jump to a Subaru. I picked up my '13 Satin White Pearl WRX Premium Hatch yesterday and I have to say I don't regret the decision. I sold my modded out Cobalt SS/SC for this car because I was sick of FWD, needed something with more room and the community was not what I wanted to be part of. My Cobalt was slightly faster than this is in a straight line but it also had a good amount of mods done and the wrx is stock so i'm sure it will change. The WRX handles like it's on rails compared to my cobalt and I already have a lot more confidence driving it in different situations. Anyways here's some picture of the car the day I picked it up, nothing special now but I'll get to making it my own.

Congrats on the new car! The statement above surprised me. I know just about nothing about the Cobalt SS but I would have expected Chevy to beef up the suspension for it compared to the base Cobalt. Not the case?

Congrats on the new ride and nice choice! I like the hatch way better than the new sedans.

Thanks everyone loving the car so far but just got a nail in my tire at 175 miles. This is my first car with tpms and it saved me I was able to put more air in and get the car to a shop to patch it.
