    Subie Noob and New Ride

    Hi All!

    The wife and I just got back from a 400 mile round trip to pickup my new 2011 DGM 4 Door WRX. I got the Limited trim level with no options and managed to pick it up for several hundred under invoice.

    I have been reading through the forums for a while and still have alot to learn, but I am very excited about the new ride.

    Just a few cosmetic mods planned for now like tint and de-badging.

    I would post pics, but it is dark already and I'm sure you have all seen one by now..

    -Robert

    I think the color shows much better when clean. I keep looking out the window at it like some kind of freak.

    It definitely needs to be tinted soon and have some wax applied...

    I was able to debadge it this afternoon, I love the fact that you can pull the letters off by hand since they haven't been on there so long, not even any gooey stuff to pick off. The vinyl dealer lettering came off just as easily.

    I left on the WRX lettering since it is also in the grille, I'm not sure yet if it should stay or go. I have to investigate how difficult it is to pull them off the grille.

    Here are some quick pics with my phone.
