    New owner of a '13 WRX Hatch!

    Hello everybody!

    Name's Henry, from SoCal. I've been a member and lurking for awhile now but I figured I should introduce myself.

    Owned my new baby since the end of May. MPG sucks but every mile is sooo worth the gas, not complaining!

    My gf's matrix and mine, at my first fill-up.

    Alright overlayed my center console and radio bezel (silver part) with carbon fiber.

    Red tail light overlays and third brake light overlay on order (over 2 weeks now) from premium auto styling. Very disappointed in them.

    Magnaflow exhaust will be ordered soon!

    That's all for now.. Hope to meet some of you guys at Subie Solstice!

    update w/ pics!
    (6/12) Installed tail light and 3rd brake light overlays.

    Yo, Henry!

    I have to see your carbon overlay, tempted too - did it on the old car

    We go way back... more on that later but congrats on moving into the Subaru!

    Also interested to hear what you think of the Magnaflow.

    MPG is not the best, but everytime I drop the hammer and watch the boost gauge spin to the right......I forget all about it.

    Congrats, and sharp car!!

    Thank you! Do it! It's a bit of a pain when you have scraps instead of a big piece. I'm a tech at a benz dealer and we got our new roadside vehicle partially wrapped with CF and the wrap guys gave me some leftover little pieces. All worked out though!

    Thanks! I'm not planning to do any tuning for a couple of years until my free service plan is over but I would like to make the car louder. Magnaflow, for the price, I can't complain even if there's drone. I'm a bit on a budget and I've always been a fan of magnaflow and it looks damn awesome too.

    I agree about dropping the hammer. Thanks! My input about magnaflow is above!

    the magnaflow sounds good, but I feel like it smooths out too much of the boxer rumble. Almost just makes the car sound like any other nice sounding 4 cylinder, instead of that distinct WRX sound.

    Just my .02.
