ID:	144889Hey everyone - I'm new to your community from VW, which I enjoyed very much (apart from the constant "MOAR LOW" nonsense).

    Was going to wait for the new GTI but decided I wanted to give AWD a go. Ordered a WRB Premium WRX 6MT with home link (package 1) and the short shifter, which to my delight has arrived a full week early. I'll be picking her up tomorrow.

    Snuck over to the dealership this morning and found her around back. I snapped a pic and did a quick (terrible) photoshop of the 2011 STI wheels I purchased last week which the dealer will be putting on for me tomorrow. I really wanted to go with a black wheel, but this was a great deal and I did another photoshop before purchasing them and really liked the look.

    First mod will be to get a proper audio setup, nothing outrageous but I hate stock systems, and didn't like the HK components. I believe Subaru uses Clarion head units, so I'm thinking about going with the Clarion nx404, hoping the steering wheel controls will match up pretty easy.

    Ok, so here's a total n00b question, is it considered lame to have the STI wheel caps on a car that isn't a STI?

    I don't see that much of an issue. I mean the VW guys can put corvette saw blade wheels on their cars... Like anything else its what you like
