I do want to say this: maybe the CVT isn't such a bad thing. If it generates more sales then perhaps it will encourage development of a hatchback somewhere down the line. more money for subaru will likely lead to better products for us. So long as the manual is always available then I'm for it.
We'll scratch me getting mine on the 31. The dealer just emailed me saying they will be getting their shipment this Friday. The 7th of April

The million dollar question then for those who generate the sales(me, potentially) of the new 15 CVT will be the following, question being if the performance envelope of the 0-60 time, with all other things (suspension, steering) being equal, basically "isit a push" between the MT and the auto-CVT as far as 0-60(5.3 versus 5.9 so far but little sample size). Noone really cares, atleast not for the foreseeable future since Soob just cut the hatch OUT for MY '15, if a hatch comes out of increased sales since soobie put all their resource JUICE into the 15 WRX/STI SOLELY due to not having to spend resource time doing "homework on a hatch" If you do not support the current soobie's decision not to offer hatch then you also do not support the new '15 wrx and sti.
on a side note, congrats to Dayton for reaching the Final Four!

From what I've seen about the no hatch decision, it was a good thing. The changes to the chassis and the everything they did in suspension really seems to have paid off. Every review so far can be summarized as "it looks quirky, but everything going else rules". That's a win, right? So years later they can focus on on the hatch. Maybe? I'm just speculating with absolutely zero basis in facy. So take my comments as such.
I replaced all the interior and exterior lights to LED.
License plate. Before and after.
GoPro pic of the interior. Took some videos (walk around outside and playing with the navi/lights/buttons inside) but not sure if it is worth posting as everything already has been covered.
