    You are right about the trunk,it seems light and cheap when you close it.

    Yeah,you can always fib and say it's aluminum like the hood.No noise from back there,the car is quiet,you hear tires more than anything else.

    I wish it at least had a hydraulic hinge to keep it from banging shut. I'm sure there will be some cheap aftermarket fix soon enough.

    I agree with this. STi parts are no problem. Putting STi badges on the car is different from installing STI parts.

    With all the people who likely will be upgrading their wheels to aftermarket, I'm hoping to eventually pick up the black STi BBS-style wheels at a reasonable price. There are currently 5 total Subaru OEM wheel styles for the 2015 model right?

    Correct but as side note if you have a STI you may want to check and see if the 17" will clear the calipers (if you wanted to use them as a winter set) Also the previous year STI BBS 05-14 wheels should fit the 2015 wrx since they have the same bolt pattern

    The snowflake style is actually more of a gunmetal with a bit of a cobalt blue hue to it...really kind of an awesome wheel color. But its not black.

    I just flogged my 15 Rex a bit on a dirt road for the first time.. I am fully imprezzed.. What an experience! Hugs turns like long lost mommy. Little body roll. Minimal turbo lag. This car just loves kicking up dust! Hmm.. Guess my first mod will have to be mud flaps.. So many dirt roads where I live.. Inticing!

    Light trunk means lighter overall weight so I don't mind it.

    As far as keyless entry goes, there's a good reason why it's a good idea not to put them on the back door. Imagine walking up to your car and putting your hand on the door handle. As soon as you do, a gunman walks up and shoves a gun to your head and easily allows his buddy into the back seat of your car as he pushes you out of the way and now has full control of your car.

    I'm glad my wife's car no longer has the keyless entry on the passenger door. Really glad she carries a gun as well
