Lapis was my first choice. It looks phenomenal in the sun and when it's clean. reminds me a lot of Interlagos blue on m3's. Very deep blue with purple undertones. It's really, really nice. White was my second choice.

We shall see. I have a few wheels planned for this car, so it should really transform the car.

I debated briefly waiting for the 18 STI, but there wasn't anything that they announced that really jumped out at me. I dislike the updated front bumper (I like fog lights), the 19's wheels are too much for this car (more expensive tires and rougher ride), and the bright brake calipers are too flashy for me. I do like the interior updates though, but it wasn't enough for me to wait for it. I figured I would hop in a 17 for now and by the time the new motor is in the STI and I wait a year after it's in production, it should put me right at the 4 year mark. Good timing to upgrade
