    New Guy About To Get 2012 SWP Hatch

    Hey all, I've been roaming around this forum for a while now in anticipation of getting a new WRX. Dealer says it should be available for pickup tomorrow (or today actually) at 3PM. Really excited. Just wanted to say hi.

    Welcome and Grats. It was hard choosing a color, but I am glad I went with SWP you will be too!

    Here's the update! I picked up the car last night from the dealer. Took about an hour or so, relatively painless experience. I'm loving the car! It came with 6 miles on it and it's got about 120 on it right now. I've been trying to take it easy on the car, but it's tough to restrain myself.

    Next steps for me are tinting the windows, getting winter wheels, and perhaps CAI/tune. I'm looking to get 20% all around of the cheapest ceramic tint I can find, Blizzaks of the same size as the stock wheels, and a CAI/tune that will not void the warranty (I heard some companies do it with some sort of agreement with Subaru...). Ideally, I would like to use the stock wheels as winter wheels and put Blizzaks on them and have a summer set with different wheels (gold OZ's?) and the stock summer tires. Any suggestions/feedback on anything I've said? or recommendations for places to go? I live in Berkeley.

    I have to ask the question that is on everybody's mind looking at those pics.Did those seats come factory installed or is that a custom job?

    BTW,any tune will lead to potential warranty claim denials.

    Custom job from ClassicSoftTrim, but done through the dealer (better price). As a side note, how do I send the text I write in the Quick Reply box?

    Oh. Got it. The text box was too big by default and covered the "Post Quick Reply" button...
