Hello everybody. I just recently dumped my piece of crap Dodge Nitro, affectionately (Just kidding! We hated that clam.) referred to in our household as the "Notro" or "Nacho", for a 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX. My buddy owns a dealership up here in NH, so I went to him and got set up for a good price. After driving it for almost 600 miles, it is both awesome and frustrating by turn.
Stuff I like about it: Damn near everything.
Stuff that kinda pisses me off: The fact that my interior lights don't turn on when I open the door.
Ugly stock rims that look like they came off a Toyota Corolla.
Stuff that REALLY pisses me off: That stock stereo is pure crap. Crap. Unmitigated. It needs to go.
That stupid agreement that you have to "OK" before the NAV unit will let you do anything. It's irritating.
I'm really miffed that the NAV equipped WRX doesn't have Bluetooth connectivity. In 2008? C'mon.
Other than those issues, I really like it. And they aren't issues, just personal preferences. I really love this car, and after driving it, my Wife wants to replace her Jeep with a Subaru of some kind. If you guys have any solutions for the Stereo or NAV agreement, or how to make my interior lights come on when I open the door, I'd love some solutions. The Bluetooth thing is a $200 dealer option. Eff that noise.
ETA) Almost forgot a pic! Inexcusable!
