    Hey guys I just picked up my 2011 DGM Wrx this afternoon, I came from an '08 350z and man what a difference! I love this car already! This is my first boosted car so I am a TOTAL NUB lol so forgive me if I ask something stupid. Ill only ask if I cant find out using that handy search button some people overlook.

    Just picked up mine last week in the same color - trust me, you want the dark grey instead of the black. It's a tough color to photograph and convey just how rich and industrial that color is - it's a lot brighter and more metallic than any photo I've seen. Photos just don't do it justice.

    Right there...in the fold right above the WRX plate on the fender...is how the whole car looks in the sun. That's the best photo I've seen yet for DGM. It's amazing.

    Yeah JC you and I are in the same exact boat, dropping our Nissan VQ35 coupes for the Subi. Love it.

    How the paint reflects in the sun is amazing, and they do come with the dampers I was shocked to see it when i popped the hood lol. Yeah I had my share of problems with my old Z, dont get me wrong I loved the looks and engine of the Z but everything else was crap

    Yeah, when I first popped the hood of mine, at the dealership, I was very happy. Coming from my '04, it makes engine work a LOT easier.

    You can come by hood dampers for pretty cheap. I use them on my 03.
