    Opinions on new car

    Hey y'all I'm brand new here, I'm buying a 2005 wrx and I'm completely in love. I'm hopefully going to pick it up sometime this coming week unless something happens. It's your basic blue wrx..plasti dipped purple. I'm absolutely in love with the purple I think it looks good but I've had mixed reactions and I just want to see if people like it or think it looks completely stupid. And any other recommendations for the car. It's no longer on gold rims, now on stock rims painted black. Thanks!

    I like purple on a Lamborghini or paint to match purple 911. I not a matte finish wrap fan.

    But what you love and what I love are different.

    Congrats on new car. Stay true to your own love, don't listen to others reactions.

    It's really an easy question.

    If you would drive it to a funeral, it's OK. If you'd be ashamed to drive it to a funeral, don't drive it anywhere.

    When I see a purple wrx I think that car has never seen dirt or snow.

    This is a daily driver lol it's plasti dip so it's pretty durable. It's been in both mud and snow though I don't plan on taking it off road.

    Well my dream a garage is

    Red lm002
    Purple Diablo vt
    Lime green aventador

    So I love your purple

    My biggest regret is when I ordered my lotus I went with chili red lifestyle paint instead of krypton green

    I love purple as long as it's shiny

    Vinyl wrapped or plasti dipped? Also, gold rims and wrb way nicer combo. Purple is obnoxious in my opinion.

    Enjoy the car. Be sure to take care of it and it will take care of you. Things can go south quickly on these little turbo engines so dont wait to address an issue.

    Not really my thing . . . but then again I like the subtle "under the radar" look on most cars . . . not a huge fan of the STI wing on any STI even though it's part of the "identity" of that car.

    I think when it gets warmer I'll probably peel it off and keep it blue for a little bit, then maybe plasti dip it another color. Or maybe get it wrapped

    Plastidip looks terrible up close. Find a vinyl wrap that is somewhat quality at least.

    Just be aware that the paint underneath might not be so pretty. That could by why it was covered in the first place. I would probably just leave it until you're ready (if ever) to actually change it to another color.
    Own it! Whatever...I think it looks pretty good.
