Hey all, new to the forum here.
Just this past spring I went and bought the car I had been following ever since the concept - a Scion FR-S. I love it, it's a blast to drive, handles like a go-kart and the 6 speed manual feels crisp. However, since I live in the great white north, I will not be driving it through the winter. I am going to be ordering a 2015 WRX (have to settle for CVT since the wife wants to drive it too...) and I was wondering what kind of options people have done in terms of rust proofing.
For me there's a couple options:
1. traditional rubberized undercoating (~$400)
2. krown ($125-150 yearly)
3. corrosion free (same as krown approximately)
Now, I have been told not to waste my time with the old school stuff and use krown, but my concern is the oil dripping, and I would probably just want the underbody sprayed. corrosion free is another option which is a gel that doesn't drip. I wouldn't want to spray anywhere other than the underbody because honestly I feel like modern cars are pretty rust proof from the factory as it is. Because of our salted roads I do want something to protect our new car!
What are everyone's thoughts/reviews?
