i was having a hard time deciding whether i should buy a 335i or STI few months ago. Now i finally made up my mind and ordered the car about a month and a half ago.
Originally i ordered the traditional world rally blue but that wont be available till march and this white one was in stock out of nowhere so i just took it instead.

I already bought my suspension, exhaust, fuel pump, intake, few cosmetic stuff and winter rims. I am also planning to go for open source tuning in this spring

so far i am LOVING IT!!!! Just took few quick pics in the cold before i went to put on winter tires

Aren't those dark wheels the ones that come on the Special Edition? Between the two car companies, I think you made the right choice. :smile:

That looks very pretty. The sedan is sooooo much better looking than the hunchback.

I love the white besides too many people have the blue anyway.

i havent seen 1 WRB sedan yet but i see so many white on the streets...

i guess i have to make this car more unique in the spring...
I am still debating whether i should buy rota boost, g force or enkei nt03m due to tight budget.
Either way they will be gold. I am kinda leaning on the enkei just because it's a nicer brand, 9.5" and +27 :D

That's weird yours is the first white I've seen, I have seen 2 wrb recently. Anyways I can't wait to see what you do with it

Hey, at least it's still in the family. And I rather like the look of the sedan. He made a pretty good choice I think...

Beautiful car, I hate hatchbacks. They are pointless besides weighing less.

Nice man, congrats!

I just picked up a WR Blue WRX Sedan yesterday. I was debating between that and the White. They both look sick imo.

subaru_terrence
01-31-2011, 12:41 PM
honesty i would still prefer the WRB. However, i heard the WRB got lighter this year

regardless of the colour, the car is still very fun to drive. I cant wait to install my parts!

Nice car! Not a fan of the sedan. I feel there is something that is almost menacing about the STI Hatch that I like. That and it is almost a wagon.

Why do you want that? Rear foglights are kinda pointless and just in the way.
And don't you loose a reverselamp with that?

subaru_terrence
03-06-2011, 08:17 PM
Huh!? Do you know what you are talking about?

The rear foglight is a separate red housing at the very bottom of the bumper... It might be useless but it's mainly for cosmetic.

Regarding to the reverse light, no I won't lose that

Legacy89
03-07-2011, 09:35 AM
Thought it was like other new cars, one fog and one reverselamp.
I don't know when you can use it or if you have to use it often in the US but here its mostly women that don't know what the indicator is for and just leave them on at all times.
