    Finally got a WRX

    I sold my '93 Legacy wagon and finally was able to step up to a WRX. As much as I absolutely love my WRX, I already miss the wagon, that thing was a champ in the snow, got insane gas mileage and never had a single mechanical problem even with well over 200,000 miles. I can't see myself driving any other brand, that car made me a fan for life.
    Here's a couple pictures of my new baby(sorry for the cell phone pics)














    Right now I'm looking into getting some tint, clear bra, mud flaps and maybe an aftermarket stereo if I can find one that lets me retain my bluetooth/console usb and auxillary/steering wheel controls. Nothing too crazy, and definitely nothing that would void my warranty.
    Man it feels good to be a WRX owner

    That's what I've heard, it is definitely at the top of my list. Does it leave an obvious line where the film ends? Or does it blend in fairly well?

    Have you seen the leather covers (or "bras") that cover the front end of a car? A clear bra is a film kind of like window tint that covers the front end of your car but is virtually invisible. Apparently a clear bra provides the same level of protection, but I'm curious as to how "invisible" it really is and if there is any special maintenance regarding washing/waxing.

    hey man, congrats on the ride. not to steal your thread or anything but i just got some quotes for a clear bra for my 11 hatch. keeps coming in around $500+ tax. thats for the whole thing. bumper, fenders, hood, mirrors, any high impact area. is that a good price? seems high to me.

    tax for clear bra install?I'm getting mine done this week for $900,hood,bumpers,fenders,door edges,door handle cups,A-pillar,rockers,mirrors.That was the lowest price I found after asking about 6 installers.It also depends on the installer,see if you can see an example of your installers work.$500 is a really good price.

    Wow. definitely. I'm going to go there this week and talk to them. they did my tint as well and I'm VERY happy with it. He said it was everything, I wanna make sure the other things you mentioned are included. if so, I think you may have persuaded me to do it. Thanks man.

    I would like to see photos of these car bras. I think with regards to clear bras, there is really no special maintenance as cleaning is the same as would be required with leather bras.
