I picked up a 2013 WRB WRX in September in 2012. I had always wanted a Subaru WRX since I was a teenager and saw my first bugeye in person, a WRB with gold wheels...love. I ordered it in July, without even test driving...but I was confident this is what I wanted. I had them add all weather mats, 120volt plug in the rear of the armrest, auto dim rear view and roof rack / bike rack. In hindsight, I really should have bought the last two outside of the dealership..the rails I have found for 40 dollars and the rack I have found for 200 dollars for two of them...what I paid for a single one...fail.
I finally decided to do a build thread and follow the progression. I love the car and am proud to own it. I plan on tracking it in the very near future a little more, and I love the utility of having room to haul things, along with the roof rack, I can take my mountain bike nearly anywhere I want. I constantly give my two cents on the vehicle when people are looking for a new car, and I alwaaays praise this car.
Well on to the fun stuff.
