I removed the dealer sticker/emblem. (Contemplating removing the "Symmetrical AWD" emblem.
If it's warm enough tomorrow I'll give her her first wash (full detail next weekend I think).

Picking up my 2017 Impreza Sport 5 door tomorrow!!!

I want to install Cold air intake and Borla exhaust almost immediately.

2017 aftermarket websites have not updated for the 2017 model as of yet..

Does anyone know if the following 2016 Impreza parts will fit the 2017 Impreza???

Exhaust:

I was able to give the Impreza the "Klasse treatment" on Saturday. Love the way this color shines/reflects.

Laid down some plastidip on the chrome & gray bits on the grille.



Next up, make decision on the FogLights. I was leaning towards the one Subaru sells, but now I'm not sure...considering there are DIY options.

Part Number: H451SFL000

That has me thinking that Subaru needs to start offering some black trim package which other car makers already do. So many people by default do this themselves regardless of what vehicle they have. See it on everything from Honda's to Maserati's.

If they're using the same 4inch fog lights, I would go with the ones from the 13' Outback as it has a glass lens and a better composite housing with better ventilation. Aside from that you're also open to full LED options.

Cracked my windscreen today on the freeway..
I haven't even made it to 1 month since I got the car (15 years of driving never even had a chip).

Lucky I took the no excess optional coverage for windscreen/glass damage.

Insurance has advised the glass company only need the car for a few hours to install the glass but then they have to send it to Subaru who will usually keep the car for 3-5 days.. I assume this is to calibrate the eyesight, I hope it's not that long when the time comes..

Will have to wait untill 1st May however because that's when the next available time to get it fixed is..

Hopefully the crack doesn't get too much bigger in the meantime!
