    I went and take a look at 2015 sti today. It was price to sell for $39.742 with leather, sunroof, and HK audio. It was a nice car but I don't know if it's worth 40k but I do like the hood scoop ( it is definetly wider ).

    Got to check out a 2015 STI Limited today. I know people have been saying this, but it's absolutely true....it looks AMAZING in person. After seeing it in person, I realized there isn't ONE SINGLE phone to show this cars true lines. It look MUCH more aggressive than any photo I've seen. I'm not getting white, but it does look really nice...

    Pictures aren't the best, but none really are.

    Here's a shot taken in line with the pedal itself:

    Now I remember, in my 08 I only had the infant seat and it was central (fits more easily). I am only about 5'6, and with the passenger seat set back only a notch or two from the driver the child seat just fits. I wouldn't want to sit much further forward if I were the passenger for any kind of distance. These pictures are taken with the seats loosely placed in the car so they might be a touch more snug if fitted correctly.

    With a Peg Perego infant seat I had to move the passenger seat forward by 3 or 4 clicks to get it in. It's a tight squeeze for sure, and would concern me if we didn't have the Forester as well (gonna need this in a week or so!). I couldn't get the same angle as the first image because my wife came home and parked too close to me

    If we didn't have a larger vehicle we would struggle for sure with two kids. I don't think the WRX would even be an option if we were much taller (my wife is similar to me). I am surprised, because I really thought there would be more room

    Let me know if you need any specific images.

    I took delivery of a GBP base WRX today, it came off the truck, salesman called me, I went over to check and it was being hand washed and detailed. Did the paper work and was driving 2 hours later.First impressions....the car WANTS to GO,it corners like a slot car and rides firmly,but better than my BRZ,not punishingly,just firmly. No front nosedive when stopping. Traded a 10 Impreza Outback and this is more roomy feeling,the width across the front seats is better, the visibility out is wonderful, the dash and side body line are lower giving great command of where you are and whats out there, lots more glass and much more back seat area. I was a hatchback lover, but the trunk is half again bigger than the space behind the seats in the Outback. So much so that I have to find a way to stow my crap that I carry, there are no tie downs and nothing to restrain movement of things. Sound freaks, you have lots of room for Subs and still have a cargo area.I cant imagine ever folding down the seats. The car is longer that the Outback and wider in the garage, just need to adjust my parking routine a little.Overall, its pretty awesome, got admiring looks from several drivers, but I have an audio problem which I started another thread about. Again,its a love affair beginning,and it looks much more upscale to the passengers, and this is the base WRX, not any limited model.Go Subie Go. I think back now and wish that Subaru had 100 percent control of the BRZ when it was designed, they obviously have learned from that experience and the 15 WRX, for the same money as a BRZ is one heck of a package.

    Thank you very much sir! Wow that is tight, it reminds me of how tight it was in the focus. Whats interesting is that when i put the car seat in the 14 hatch i had an easy 2 - 3 inches, but in the focus it was as tight as could be. Both my wife and i are 5'7" so i think it will be tight.

    We also have another Subaru and i think you are right, without the outback it wouldn't be doable. But i think i am still going to give it a shot. I sit pretty close to the steering wheel, so maybe it will still work with my daughter behind me. Thanks again for the pictures, i ouw you one!

    Are you asking if there's like a number for it out of 1000 somewhere inside? That would be awesome. My buddy had a limited edition Miata and it had a little plate inside engraved with something stating its one of a set number. You're lucky to be getting yours this month. Mines not due until Cinco De Mayo.

    Forza!? If you grab Gran Turismo it has a handful of WRXs. I love driving it from the inside view and looking out through the replica interior/dashboard. It's especially fun to rally. Unfortunately they haven't added the 2015 yet but I'm certain it's coming.

    My new WRX

    Will be picking up this base WRX next week - had ordered a Galaxy Blue but when I saw it in person, just didn't like it as much as this Ice Silver. Also fwiw, I sat in the Limited - not enough headroom for me at almost 6'5" and the leather bolsters dug into my sides.

    With the base model and no sunroof and the cloth bolsters - no problem - test drove this car yesterday and fell in LOVE!!!

    What didn't you like about the GBP? I'm on the fence between that and DGM. I've seen some pictures of the GBP that look awesome, and some I don't like as much. It seems to really change with the lighting.
