    Picking up my '08 WRX Friday!!

    I'm new to WRX's. I'm picking up my WRB Premium sedan with Navigation on Friday. I want to pick it up earlier, but I work 2 jobs and just don't have time. I'm also getting the under seat subwoofer installed in the mean time. I currently have an '03 Neon R/T, a '99 Eclipse GS-Turbo and a '98 Ranger... Trying to sell the Eclipse now, was planning to wait to buy the WRX until it was sold, but can't wait any longer... You can see a pic of the car in my avatar!!!

    Yeah, I've been driving it a lot... I had to clean it up a bit before I took pics. Also had to get rid of the dealer installed swirl marks!!!!
    First I clayed it with Green sonus clay. Polished it with my Hitachi Rotary using Menzerna Super Intense Polish on a white Edge 2k pad. Followed that with JW Prime acrylic on a blue pad with my Porter Cable Random Orbit polisher, next hit it with JW Acrylic Jett Trigger, next day wiped it down with FK 425 and put on a coat of Collinite 845. It's a great wax for winter protection, I'll go more for beauty in the spring!!! Here's some pics!!

    I really like the new style (do I hear boos and hisses in the background??)

    I'm actually kinda shocked at how hot it looks in detailed WRB. Nice job.
