    New WRX owner

    Pulled the trigger on a 2014 DGM Limited hatch this past weekend (2/15).

    STS, with a few other small options such as all-weather mats, cargo tray, alloy locks and so forth.

    Two-hour, white-knuckle drive home through crappy Cleveland weather on I-71. Would have brought a set of snows with me, but, up until I was sitting in the dealership, I was seriously considering moving my deposit over to an order for a 2015. In the end, the hatch won out.

    I may just let the car sit for awhile and deal with a snow tire/wheel package next year.

    The only upgrades I want to do right now are to snag one of those Forester or Impreza radios and relocate the front plate. I could've bought one of those radios for $220 just last week, but, as I said, I wasn't sure if I was getting the '14. Oh well.

    In the spring, I'll enlist the help of a friend to install some better STS bushings. Then, after tossing it around a bit, I'll determine if want a rear sway bar. Who knows? I might not even feel a need for it by then.

    I only have one question right now. Is it a good idea to get a rear bumper cover? I neglected to get one added, but wonder if that was a mistake.

    Thanks!

    Congrats !!! And welcome. Don't know when you'll see the next hatch from Subaru...I assume you wanted utility so you did well. You won't be disappointed, once you get the winters, these are tanks in snow. We've been walloped in the Northeast and this bugger just goes in snow.

    For a few more bucks you can get a nice double din. Buy the forester front bezel and it snaps right in. Should fit most 7" double dins perfect.
