    My new toy! *pic!

    Thanks to everyone who added their advice and thoughts, guiding my decision to buy my first WRX. Picked it up Saturday and couldn't be happier. So far, clear bra is on and rear badges are off...

    Congratulations on the sweet ride! I'm loving my new WRX...looks just like yours, but mine's a sedan.

    I read that some of the late year WRXs had badges that were secured with posts through the trunk. Do the badges on the '09s have these posts, or can they be removed with the old hair dryer and fishing line?

    How much did the clear bra cost? I'm thinking about getting one, too.

    Congrats on the purchase.

    Many people believe that removing the superfluous badging cleans up the appearance. The spaced-out S-U-B-A-R-U on the back of the earlier USDM WRX's just screamed "econobox", IMO.

    I replaced the Pleides badge in front with an I badge, and removed the Subaru letters from the back... to this day I still get people asking me who makes my car.

    Thanks guys (and ladies). Yeah, the badges came off pretty easy, fishing line and adhesive remover. I removed the "subaru" and "impreza", leaving the "WRX". For now...
    And I did it just because I think it looks cleaner, less cluttered, just a personal preference.
