This is a discussion on My new 2012 WRX Hatch DGM within the New Member Hangout forums, part of the Community - Meet other Enthusiasts category; What`s up all, just traded my 07 WRX sedan for a 2012 WRX Hatch....WOW, what a difference! Feels like I ...
Congrats! Make sure you break her in
2012 WRB WRX Sedan ...
...On order since 5/14/2012
...Picked up on 6/29/2012
Congrats on the purchase
If you need any parts or advice, let me know.
Thanks, I`m at 943 miles, nothing over 4000 rpms yet....How about when to do the first oil change, I have free oil changes for 3 yrs/36,000, I think Subaru does the first oil change at 3-3500 miles, will have to check the manual for that....I think I`m going to change it at 1000 for peace on mind.
Many people suggest doing it at 1k
Welcome & Congrats!!
What made you go from the '07 to the '12? Just curious since I have a '07 WRX.
Differences? Care to share your opinions/experiences.
welcome and grats!
I did my first oil change right about 3000. My dealership seems to be recommending 7500 intervals...no way am I waiting that long.

"Isn't it amazing how smart you feel when you just aren't being stupid?"
07 WRX vs 12 WRX.....Well, where to begin, the first thing I noticed was how much room there is inside and the rear passengers can actually stretch their legs, there wasn`t much room in the 07. The handling is way better, less body roll and I love the wide stance....what`s crazy is I bought the 12 WRX for almost same price as the 07 WRX , both bought new, the 07 had a factory 3" CBE and CAI, the 2012 came with a short throw shifter......I`m still in the break in period but from what I can tell the 2012 is alot faster!!! yippie!!!! so far I love my hatch, the only thing is the factory speakers are rattling the doors, other than that it`s really fun to drive and looks so damn good....
Thanks for the info.
You are comparing stock vs stock right? I am not stock now.. Far from it.
What did you pay (if you don't mind me asking)? I paid $25,500 OTD for my '07 WRB WRX Limited back in May '07 (brand new)
nice car, we're in the same boat DGM hatch WRX haha. I've been having some trouble putting the car in reverse from time to time though. here's mine
Nice rides. I plan to put a deposit down on the DGM, 5 Door 2012 today or tomorrow. In the hatch, I think the DGM might be the best looking color.
yeah, stock vs stock....25,000 for the 07, 26,000 for the 12....the dealer gave me 13,000 for the 07 with 80,000 miles, they now have it listed for 17,500, these subies hold there value...
