Default Interior carpet, blue or black?

I have seen pictures of the USDM STi that had either blue or black interior carpet. The Subaru website clearly shows black carpet with black STi floor mats. The show cars and some of the pictures shown on this forum show blue carpet. What is the real color?

The USDM STI only comes with a Black and blue interior. And there aren't any floormats specifically for the STI yet. You can probably go with WRX mats though.

So the Subaru website is wrong? It clearly shows black carpet with black emroidered floor mats with STi logo. Only the seats and door panels are blue/black and the seats seem to be the USDM type. What gives?

boxerT,

I noticed the same thing. In all of the photos I have seen from those in Canada, New Jersey, Puerto Rico and Hawaii the carpet is blue and there were no STI specific floormats.

However in the photos and 360 interior view on subaru's website, the carpet is dark grey and it had dark grey floormats with an embroidered STI logo. I wonder if its cuz Subaru of America wimped out on the website design and just copied stuff from other countries subaru website. Perhaps the photos and 360 view we see is not the actual USDM spec.

Additionally, the pics from Puerto Rico show a matching dead pedal.

Weird.

Jacklock,

Perhaps you are correct that the picture was copied from another country, but the seats look like they are the US spec.

Anyone else care to comment?

All I know is that I am organizing a carpet/door panel swap shop day with the first 2004 WRX owner who wants a blue interior.

This issue has been discussed before, the car from Puerto Rico had an aftermarket dead pedal installed. The stock dead pedal is rubber and does not match the other pedals.
