    No ruffled feathers here - I am looking at my 2015 sedan for the second morning and I like everything about the way this car looks!

    That's what they call "adaptive preference". You don't really like it your just trying to convince yourself you do.

    Seriously though, your new WRX in the Galaxy Blue is quite beautiful.

    I'll try to get some front LED images later. For those who are thinking about the cloth seats they are very comfortable and look really nice.

    Raven post some pictures, also what did you get? Base 6Spd?
    Some pics of the base interior would be nice.
    That's exactly what I'm looking at.

    Had a nice 1/2 day on the slopes ... 3/4 of the drive on wet roads was amazing ... last few miles of slush to snow on summer tires made it a bit sportier ... still a great day to ski/drive.Click image for larger version.

I'm still just happy to be getting this sucker soon.

    I was given a price of $39,296 for the launch edition with the package below. Should I be trying to haggle with the dealer to get that down? Seems crazy to try and lowball the guy considering there's only 1000 of them out there.

    Popular Package 1.
    Keyless Entry & Start
    Heated Mirrors, windshield wipers, and seats,
    Auto Dimming Mirror Compass and Homelink
    Leather center armrest
    Cargo Tray,
    Bumper Protection Film,
    Wheel Locks,
    Security system,
    All weather Mats,
    Short throw leather shifter.

    Another bonus is non-leather cloth material seats come default and de-FACT-to on Base Wrxs which is what I and my group buy connects are interested in. I'm not sure if it is the chair or the actual material but the LEATHER seats on the <=14s led directly to back problems. The leather in the <14 was unimpressive so have to sit in the '15s leather in order to confirm prior to purcha$e!. bye bye 2 group buy then.

    I already posted exterior pics, will try to capture some interior tonight. Canadian mid-level, so basically a Premium but we get the LED lights (and pay more than you for the pleasure).

    How were the summers on the slush and snow? I put winters on before moving the car from the dealership, but then the weather has been good since LMAO! The good thing is that the car feels nice on the winters (Xi3), and not wanting to wear them out straight away is helping me keep things calm during the break-in

    Is that more than msrp? I wouldn't let them sell you on the "only 1000" idea, in the end it's a car with gold wheels. And while a lot of people do love the car, the number of people who can afford the car and who are willing to buy one with gold wheels is not that high. Paying 2k more than invoice is too much in my opinion, work that number down.

    I agree with this. Don't overpay for the launch. especially if this will be your daily driver. The launch editions are cool as a collectible, but high mileage collectibles are worth a lot less. So if it's gonna be your daily driver, just get a limited STi at invoicish.

WRX owners grab up the BBS wheels that fit 5x100 hubs. But that's about to change...

    2005-2007 STi BBS wheels are also much heavier...
    Where can one find the 17x8 STi BBS (5x114.3) for $400-$500?

    Not too well ... a corner slush surprise had me sliding a bit more than I wanted, but came around in time ... after that I slowed a bit til I got to the parking lot ... then I had a little fun til others started showing up ... I plan to get some winter ones before next winter.
