    I think its kind of a shame they made the headlights all chrome on the base/premium models. Hard to see the subaru 'C' shape accent (or as the designer called it on the concept wrx, "hawk-eye" design) with it all being chrome. I mean, I realize they have to make the limited look better, but still.

    I would agree with Gizmo, it does appear to be touching, could be the angle? To each his own, but IMHO, I prefer the dual look of the 15's over the single. Sounds good though man!
    Drive like hell, you will get there faster!

    Warranty friendly mods for now-

    Its amazing at what the mpg numbers are for guys with the CVT! Had I not fell back in love with the idea of driving a manual again, I actually might have considered a cvt just for the impressive fuel economy numbers for an awd sports sedan.

    ^ Notice the remaining miles on the top screen. This must be immediately following a fillup. There seems to be some strange logic in the MPG readout that claims exceptionally high MPG readings immediately after filling the tank. In my 2015 STi, I get about 24 mpg on the highway (conventional calculation), but the readout tends to claim 30+ MPG immediately after filling the tank. This picture was taken for a 25 mile drive after the fillup:



    Indeed the CVT WRX is getting good economy, but I wouldn't trust the readout.

    That doesn't make me feel quite as bad then. I'd be thrilled to average 25-26 with the base wrx manual. We'll see if that's doable though when I get it. Looking like another week or less at this point.

    Depending on the number of highway miles I'd say that's very reasonable.

    Looks like most are averaging about 22 MPG city driving and up to 28 MPG highway, but apparently at 55 mph, 30+ MPG is achievable. Again, these are all based on conventional calculation and not that silly readout.

    Yeah - medical sales rep w/ 3 states...unfortunately have the front end road-rash that goes along with it - touching it up as best I can w/ a toothpick but, it is what it is.

    I never get tired of this car - read a review before I got it - someone said it was a Supercar...and I agree.
