hi everyone, im finally the proud owner of a plasma blue pearl limited wrx 4 door. i have been looking at this car and researching it for 5 months, watching videos, etc etc etc. well i finally own one! i wanted a satin white prem but once i saw the dealer had plasma blue i called the same day bought it the next.had to drive a 150 miles to this dealer but well worth it. love the color and glad i got the limited, love the car! the color is close to the color of my titan so loving the way my garage looks now. i traded in my 06 cobalt ss supercharged fully loaded, with zzp stage 3, full exh, intake,etc etc, bought 5 grand in it.it was a great car and was fun and fast but this wrx is just an amazing car. going from a super charger to a turbo is a lil differant at least with the turbo wont have all the heat issues. any ways already got the windows tinted dark all around, and hopefully have laminx blue headlight covers,and laminx tint on the rear lights by a few weeks. i'll post some pics soon just havnt had time to take any.

Looks cool, I have yet to see that color in person yet.

That's a bummer about the swirls in a brand new car. Unfortunately, the average person does not know how to properly wash a vehicle to prevent all those hair line scratches in the clear coat.

yup i wanted satin white but i saw an sti this color and feel in love. then found this car a week later. had to have it. yea i was pretty upset that the dealer put the first scratches in it. then my gf washed it the other day(amazing lol) and she used an old wash mit so she put some fine scratches in it...

The clear coat is very soft on these cars so care needs to be taken when washing or drying the dark colors. I pressure wash my car before washing it to get any loose dirt off. Then wash using the 2 bucket method with a micro fiber wash mitt.
