    I hope you already got winter tires for it if you're going to drive it up there...

    Looks good man! They had an '11 limited in that color on the floor of the dealership when I went to pick up my '11 WRX. And +1 to snow tires. It turns it into a snowmobile!

    Snow tires make the car drive like crap - but its worth is to be able to drive the car at all in the winter. I am changing mine back to the summers as soon as possible.

    Rattles... hmm.... let me list what I have had (they get worse when the car is cold):
    1.) Door panels (front): Fix is to remove panel, and either secure or remove the white box that seems to have no purpose (other than to rattle) inside the door.
    2.) Rear deck panel seat belt latches: Fix is to shove some type of cloth under the lid of the latch and close it in place.
    3.) Rear seat to rear deck: I have the limited too, so its leather back there. When its cold, the leather is hard like plastic and hits the plastic deck. I solved this by putting weather stripping on the rear deck where contact is made with the seat.
    4.) Rear deck break light: Mine was not secured at all - it would move 1/2 inch easy. I strips of velcro on it to hold it in place.
    5.) Rear deck: I am still working on this.. I am thinking of shoving painters rags in the holes of the sheet metal from inside the trunk until the deck doesn't move at all.
    6.) Dash: The vent in the upper left (just left of your gauges) seems to be a little loose, I think this is where a small but annoying noise is coming from.
    7.) Rear side airbag retainers: No idea how to fix without compromising the function.

    Thats all I can think of, but I seem to get new ones every time the temp goes below 0!

    I've only been driving for just under 700 miles... No rattles yet for me. We haven't had below 0 temps tho, only low 20''s. Hopefully it stays this way :P
