Hey guys, some of you may have seen my post in the Car Purchasing forum. I just ordered a base WRX hatch in WR Blue with exhaust finishers and boost gauge. I think I got a pretty good deal (though I certainly could have payed less) of $26,000, $300 over invoice. There is a bit of a shortage of these cars in my area, and the price falls right in between Truecar and Edmunds, so I am satisfied.

I plan on keeping the car fairly stock, at least until the warranty ends. It will be my DD, leaving my 1978 280z for weekends/sunny days. One change that I do plan on making is putting some 16 inch steelies with winter tires on for the winter. I am also considering a Cobb STS with bushings and maybe a catback, but it will be a while until I get the funds for those goodies; probably next summer. There is also a thought of getting a roof bike rack, but I want to see just how much biking I actually do this summer before I plunk down the cash for that.

The one thing that I think I will add as soon as I can are some Rally Armor mud flaps. I am kind of toying with the idea of getting the red ones, but I can't decide if they would look tremendous or horrendous with the blue car (I love the look of the red on white, so I figure it might look cool as well).

Any thoughts or suggestions would be highly appreciated, and I promise to post pics once I get the car!

Here are some pics of my Datsun in case there are any old school Japanese lovers here: 280Z - Imgur

Yeah, I think I will just go with the black flap with blue accent. Red could look cool, but I don't want to buy the flaps and and have it look ridiculous.

One other thing, my mom picked up her car tonight and along with it came a dealer coupon for $200 off of a car brought in by a referral. They applied her coupon to my deal, bringing the price down to $25,800.

i forgot what forum it was but i saw a wrb with red RA flaps. it didnt look horrible but it doesnt look good. just my opinion. go black. or if you like the red get the black with red and then have red accents on your car. rims, grill, horns, etc.
