Gotta be the first to get those aftermarket parts out.

Saw on FB that RallySport had purchased a WRX and an STI as well.

Looks like a Limited w/Nav. Any thoughts on it, Brian? I've heard they look a lot better in person. It's the right color.

I might pop by there tonight and see if I can get a look at it myself.

Sam...I'm sold. This thing is bad ass and looks great in person. I didn't know from all the pictures but actually sitting in it, seeing the dash and all the lines PLUS it has power seats!!! Sometimes, it's the little things :)

I can't wait to see it in person.

I ain't a fan of them shiny hvac knobs though. I guess they didn't want people thinking they were sitting in an Impreza Sport. :lol:

Someone already slapped a turbo-back exhaust on from a 11-14 sedan. Bolts right up. :)

Was wondering that too. I heard if u go EL, u lose the Boxer rumble. Which defeats the purpose of the new feature on the 15s, projecting the engine sound into the cockpit.


Sigh, get ready. This new gen of buyers will be worst than the last.

Judging by the over-abundance of Hyundai on a Subaru lot, Grayson.

Yep went there before 10 this morning and they were both gone (had 2 according to sales manager?) they do have a base DGM WRX. Will have a launch edition STi next week. I personally am not sold. It is different but still the same. Lots of parts are going to be interchangeable from the 3g sedan. I'll bet dollars to donuts the current downpipe will fit the STI. It may not but I would be surprised.

It is the same chassis, just stronger. IMO.

I posted a link a couple posts up of a shop bolting up a full exhaust from a sedan GV STi.

Where'd you find that? The BRZ rear valence actually looks pretty good there.

Grayson currently has 2 '15 WRX's. 1 white, 1 silver. Drove by there yesterday and saw them. Didn't stop, but I might check them out after they're closed so I can take some pics and whatnot without being harrassed.

When are you going over there. I'll come over and harass you and try to get you to buy a Hyundai.

Sat in a 2015 WRX limited with CVT - (Folks this is a legacy not a WRX!) Don't like it. Hope it drives...

Well... The 3G/4G is pretty much a Legacy GT. :P

Everyone has their preferences. It's perfectly fine not to like the new body style.

Remember how pissed people were when the 3G initially came out? Only a face a mother could love!

That one above is nicer than my 08 was... I had a base and it had tires and brakes... and that was about it. The car isn't bad, just looks like the previous gen legacy... seems much bigger than even the 3g. I know on spec sheet it isn't much but...
