4onthefloor's New Whip

Post by 4onthefloor » Tue Aug 09, 2016 8:30 pm

So after 5 1/2 years of owning my 07 I decided it was time for an upgrade. After 4 months of waiting I finally picked up the new whip this morning:

2017 WRX Sport.

It'll stay mostly stock for now, other than a few cosmetic changes. I'll update this thread just like I did my old car as I make progress on it.
Two pedals, two feet, too easy.

They have different trim levels in Canada. It goes Base, Sport, Sport-tech. So it's sort of the same as the premium trim but with slightly different options.

Subaru definitely stepped up their game with the 2015+ interiors. Most people wouldn't think much of it, but coming from a GD gen Impreza the interior is waaaay better. The gauges and flat bottom steering wheel are pure sex.

And yes, definitely having fun. Trying to get through the break-in period so I'm taking random drives with no purpose to rack up the miles and break in the engine. Loving the car so far.

Don't forget to rev the hell out of it once the engines warmed up 8)

Is that more or less than 10,000 leagues?
