    From the Perrin blog:
    "With my major issue with the WRX out of the way, we can hit on some of the positives. The engine is very very smooth. Its very quiet, in fact its so quiet that Subaru removed one of the resonator son the exhaust to help make it louder. The sound from the exhaust is still pretty mellow compared to the STI which is actually a good thing."

    I think it's interesting that they removed the resonator on the WRX model. I wonder what the difference in sound is between the oem midpipe and an aftermarket resonated 3" diameter midpipe.

    exactly. It's funny bc people are asking $25-$27k for 2013/2014 wrxs lol. My 15 should be worth 29k at least with $1500 in extra tires and accessories. Losing $3k at this price for 2800 miles lol

    The reason the '13s and 14's are going for so much is because hatch + rumble. That's really it. The hatch especially. People can command a premium for those since there's no hatch now. Mine is probably work like $50grand right now. Low end estimate.

    If only Subaru would bring the Levorg over here...

    Same 2.0L DIT engine as the '15 WRX (but 296hp), AWD, and in a wagon package. They also debuted a new 1.6L turbo, which is equivalent in power to the 2.5L NA engines found in the Forester and Legacy. CVT is only transmission option, though. :/

    Here are some pics my Japanese friend in Yokkaichi sent me from the local Subaru dealer. He's a big Subaru fan (or "Soobah" as they pronounce it in Japan), and always sends me pics of the new JDM models. He drives a JDM Fozzie XT.





    I'd be ok with this being the WRX hatch, although it does look remarkably similar to a Volvo wagon...

    Let us know how that works out please! How much play do you have now? Mine is tight side to side, with a small bit of play up and down. I am assuming it's this part is to tighten this up?

    Did you buy all this from a local shop and they installed it? or you bought it all online and did it yourself? That black roof look sick! I want one on my Launch Edition!

    Wow, the front end of that LeVorg looks pretty bad ass.. Japan and Europe always end up with the best looking cars. Here in The US, we always end up with the crappy looking models..

    I personally wish Subaru would implement the AFL (axle forward layout) debuted in the Exiga concept.

    I actually prefer our front end...I'm glad we don't have all that chrome trim on the front
