    I'm a new guy!

    What up everyone! Just picked up my new 2014 WRX Limited sedan and this car is even better than hoped for. Drove around in an 06 for a while n figured I wanted one for my own. I'm not gonna do too much to it for now since its under warranty but once that 3 years/36k miles ends, oh there will be plans. Only thing I'm going to do to it is install Rally Armor mud flaps and change the interior and license plate lights to led's just for a cleaner look. Pics will be available posted tomorrow since its dark right now. Glad there is actually a pretty active community for this.

    nice pick up! In my opinion grabbing a 14 while you could is a smart move. A lot of great info on this site.

    Welcome! Concur with Rally Armor UR flaps. They really work.

    One other item to consider is the application of Clear Bra (Paint Protection Film) on chip prone areas. Subaru has really crappy paint that will easily chip. Subaru already applied Paint Protection Film on the rear fenders. I had my shop apply the film on the hood up to the intercooler scoop, front fenders and side mirrors (side mirrors were free). Didn't do the bumper since it's made of plastic (and it also happens to be the most expensive part to film).

    And yeah, post pics!

    When its dark again ill take pictures of the lights. I think the LED's just make the car look a lot sharper.

    Definitely something I am interested in getting done. The roads where I live are crap and it snows a bunch so there's always a need for protecting the paint. Thanks for the heads up!

    It took me a few weeks to decide on this one or the 15 but I couldn't get over the look of the front of the car. Just doesn't look beefy enough IMO. That and the fact that it looks like a scrunched up EVO turned me away lol. Also, the ability to start grabbing parts for the car that have been tested n known to be of value to the car was also a big selling point. I didn't want to buy things for the car that no one has tested or wait till they have been to pick them up.

    I like the look with the flaps and spoiler.
