Default Offically gone to the "dark" side of the spectrum...

Traded in my Satin White 2013 Limited WRX Hatchback for a Crystal Black 2017 STI Limited. Although I'll miss the hatchback ALOT, I'm excited to finally have gotten my STI. Also, with the color white from white to black, I've officially gone over to the "dark" side . Now just have to figure out how to deal with the swirl marks

I think you'll find the VA chassis very appealing with the rigidity and steering rack. Our '15 STi was a blast to drive.

Congrats! The darkside is so much better. There's more power on the darkside. It's savage. Raw.

As for swirl marks, avoid those self-service carwashes with dirt-infested brushes. Now that you have an STI with a big honkin' wing on the back, you'll likely have to avoid most if not all carwashes with rotating apparati, as it'll impact the wing negatively.

Two bucket washing, look it up. Clean mits. Clean towels. Learn how to wash, dry, wax, and polish in the right hand motions. You'll be good to go. Black looks AWESOME clean!

Update: I see you're in CA. So, not much rain. You won't have to do much in terms of washing, but spraying off loose dirt and paint protection.
