    New Member/WRX Owner

    Hey guys new member here for Socal area. Been wanting a WRX for the longest time and finally saved enough pennies to get one ^_^

    Just bought myself a '14 WRX Limited Sedan. Dark Grey Metallic, All-weather package, Navigation, STi Short Throw Shifter, STi Shift Knob, SPT Bushings and Carbon Fiber Trunk Trim. Such a great car. I love everything about it. Pictures really do not do these vehicles justice. You MUST see them in person. From the pictures, when i was shopping around i wasn't too thrilled about the paint color, but it was my favorite out the selections. But, when i got up close and saw it, i was blown away. I could go on about all the things I love about this car, but I'm -extremely- pleased with my purchase. I have just a few things i dont like. The blind spot on the drivers side when looking back to switch lanes, the stock fog lights seem pretty useless lol, sometimes my iPod doesn't sync up when i plug it into the usb aux jack, at certain bass frequencies there's a rattle in the passenger side door (have already talked to the dealership about this) and -- it's just too damn sexy i can't stop looking at it when i walk away. To me, these negatives are very miniscule. Such a great car :-)

    I ha e yhe same problem. I haven't opened It up yet to really see where it's rattling but I believe it's somewhere between the window switches and door handle. Throw some non woven tape or foam of some sort in between between and you'll be good.

    You bought a subaru though. Previously said, wait till its cold. You won't even hear your music or exhaust. Your a pillar by the VIN plate will rattle once it gets close to 50 degrees and colder, c pillars will start, deck lid, getting even colder and throw some mileage on and your power steering will start to whine until the fluid warms up...

    The list goes on

    Thanks for the warm welcome all.

    I'm from San Diego (North Park) area.

    I had the rattling looked at, at the Dealership. The guy put some felt tape around the power window switch inside of the door panel and it cured the problem.
