    I thought it was pretty noticeable on your STI dude. Not anything dark like aftermarket, but it certainly seemed like even a 50-60% tint. It looks good with it.

    I picked up a DGM WRX today. I've been looking for a while, and it came off the truck yesterday and I had it by 11 AM this morning.

    It's a base, and I'm loving it so far. I traded in a 2011 WRX Hatch, and though I will miss the hatch, everything else about this car is an improvement. The break in period is going to kill me!

    Curious, has anyone used the launch control feature on their WRX? I have the CVT so it's a little different obviously, not having a clutch. I checked the drivers manual and didn't see anything for how to activate it. Is it really just brake down, gas down? Guess I can't do real burn outs?

    Break and gas down is really the only way to launch an auto. It's called brake torque (at least where I work)

    Yea, I read the cvt comes programmed with a launch control. It activates by at full stop. Brake down nd gas down, it holds the rpms at a certain limit and when u release brakes, bam u go!

    You want to do burn outs in an AWD car? The wheels grip pretty well at the stock power level, so some other part of the drive train will have to take the strain and I'm not sure that you really want to be replacing non-consumable parts. Wait until it snows, then turn of TC and have some fun!

    I just picked up my 2015 ISM WRX last weekend and am loving the car. I did notice that my car had a "notchy" feeling when depressing the clutch pedal. It occurs at about 2/3's of the way down and feels like a small "click". It's more noticeable when engaging the clutch during a full stop. Do any of you experience this as well? The car only has about 100 miles on it so I'm wondering if this goes away after the break-in period.
