Hello All,

After waiting 11 weeks for the car, I can say it definitely was worth the wait. I am a first time Subaru owner, as well as AWD owner.

Attached is a pic of my car. IT has an SPT short throw and exhaust. So far, I got body side moldings, 35% tint all around and XPEL clear. I also applied Opti-Coat myself which I am very pleased with the results.

I plan on getting an Grimspeed license relocator, mud flaps and shifter bushings which I wish I ordered with the car. I would also like to go Stage 2.

Glad to be a part of Clubwrx, thanks!

She's a looker! How to you like those tails? I have a 5-door on order and can't make up my mind regarding overlays or stock.

Welcome! Nice car!
Welcome & congratulations.

I believe we haven't seen many OBP STI hatchbacks.
Um I think it's DGM... Or were you aware of that and just stating the obvious?

Welcome! How was the opticoat application process?
I was a bit intimidated at first, but it was allot easier than expected. I had a new car to work with, which also made it easier. I polished the car and got it the way I wanted it. Next, I did a complete dilluted alcohol rinse and wipe of the entire care and then applied the Opti-coat.

I think the key is getting the applicator nice and soaked, once that happened it when on like butter, just make sure you cover it evenly using a microfiber towel in between applications.

The water beads are incredible when it rains.

Thanks guys,

It's Dark Gray, but definitely starts looking black when the sun goes down, especially with the tinted windows.

The clear bra also blends in real nice with DGM.

DGM is sex....only people who don't think so are ones who bought lesser colors.

I've been toying with the idea of doing this, doesn't sound too too bad.
