Hi all,

About to make my first big purchase and I figured I'd join the forums and get your thoughts on some things. I have finally decided that the WRX is what I want, had an appointment with a dealer yesterday and showed up to find out the guy I was supposed to be meeting was out sick and the car that was supposed to arrive on Thursday ended up not coming. Over and over again I was told that ordering one was my best bet so I ultimately have decided to order one with everything I want.

I'm having issues choosing a color though! I've heard a lot of mixed feelings about Subaru paint being not as appealing as others, I'm curious what you think about the red as I have never seen one in person so it's hard to get an idea of how it actually looks. I am strongly opposed to white and silver, as every other car on the road is one or the other.

I'd suggest asking them to check around some other dealers to see if they have something that would fit your needs. The dealer I bought mine from was awesome with this and I ended up really being happy with my purchase.

I haven't seen a red but it looks really, really bright. I passed on red being afraid of police issues. I know you said no white or silver but I really like both of them. I attached a picture of mine.

I guess if I didn't want red, white or silver I'd take a good look at blue.

I'm loving my DGM STI. It's not quite black and it's not those lighter silver or white colors either.

I had a really hard time picking out a color too, here were my thoughts on each color-

Black- really wanted it at first but I know it's high maintenance, especially with Subaru paint
Blue- had it on my '02 WRX, and it's beautiful on the new ones, but I wanted something different and less flashy
White- looks really sharp but not as aggressive as the dark colors on the WRX in my opinion, and like you said there are white cars everywhere at the moment
Red- haven't seen it in person once yet, but wanted to go less flashy with mine- if you're a fan of red though it might be a good option
Silver- Blah

I ended up getting DGM and have been happy with it- it's darker than most manufacturer's shades of dark grey, but easier to maintain than black for sure. I think it's a good option if you like the aggressive look but also want to keep it under the radar a bit. Bright colored WRX's can get a lot of attention for the wrong reasons. Good luck with the decision, I'm sure you will love whatever you get!

Wifey and I initially wanted the Dark Grey Metallic. It looks so nice with the stock wheels. I ultimately chose plasma blue metallic as it has the most depth and the color I see least on the road.
