Its true the color has alot to do with how your car gets noticed. Black flys under the radar so well, if it was'nt for the DGM I would have that exact same car. Looks great, keep it clean and let the project begin

Yep, plus it's easier to identify you if you piss someone off. This is going to be my first car that will have no custom plate. Or is it because I just can't think of something clever for it?
I also traded my 2006 350z that I had for about 5yrs for a 2011 WRX sedan and believe it or not I've received more comments/attention from people with the WRX. I think its because there are so many 350z here in the LA area. I've only had the WRX for a month and I just recently arrived at the 1000 mile break in period, thank goodness. Here's my 2c comparison:
The z had a more linear power delivery and always had enough power/torque no matter what gear I was in. There rarely was any need to downshift to pass on the freeway. However the ride quality and noise really sucked, especially on long drives. It was a little too tail happy for me in the corners and didn't give me much confidence to really push the car, partially because I'm probably not that great of a driver The car also felt heavy and sluggish in the corners.
The WRX is so much more comfortable, convenient, and quite inside than the z. Handling is amazing and inspires confidence in the corners. I miss the low end torque, but that's nothing a downshift can't fix. I also like that there aren't too many driving around here. I'm really happy with my purchase!
Unlock some torque (+/- 70ft/lb) by going stage 1. It will make the power delivery a bit more linear. You'll love it.
