[QUOTE=Froride1][QUOTE=Louros]The lack of red cars on this site is appaling lol... heres mine
I agree, I bought an '04 because it was red. I thought I would see more but I have never seen another one on the road. I see every other color. Oh well, that makes mine that much cooler. Pics are of it stock and with new wheels.
I like the side skirts painted!!!! How much did it cost to do that?
I got this one because it *WAS* red. too many blue, silver and black WRX's running around lol. I like the look of the black wheels on the car above- it was a thought for this one also, not too sure what wheels though. I used to have a set of 17" ADR Kasais in "black chrome", I inquired about them but apparently (according to ADR) it was a limited production color, so I am sol with that option lol..
edit- I only included the console pic because I have seen various questions here and there about what the 05 console looked like.
What do you use for wax? My SRR swirls so easy no matter what I use- orbital, microfiber, etc. It shines great with Zaino, Meguires Tech Wax, and Eagle one wet detailer, but looks like *** under street lights and such. The car has never seen a towel, brush, etc. aside from microfiber and it still has fine swirls and scratches in it!!!!
Lol, I traded in an 03 Mustang GT convert when I got the WRX- it was a year and a half old with 11k miles on it and had no chips in the front end or hood anywhere. The WRX is a couple of months old, has 1200 miles on it and has about a dozen chips on the front end, hood and fenders!!! Really thin paint on this thing!!!
My sister bought me some turtle wax for Christmas. Sorry, I don't have a recommendation in that area of car care. Yeah waxing your car is such a laborious task. And then your paint has the swirls and scratches etc. I always find some small left over wax spots I miss. Ugh.
About 2 weeks ago my friend let me use his place to wash our cars (I'm at an apartment) and he used this great stuff to clean the rims. I had this spray my sister bought for me in a kit. It worked OK. But, I HIGHLY recommend Turtle wax chrome cleaner for your rims. It worked almost like magic when getting the shmutz and brake dust off and the rims looked almost like new.
