Chicken's Crosstrek

I had been wanting a Crosstrek for a few years.. I almost pulled the trigger and got a 2017 in the tan khaki, but decided to wait as the 2018's were going to be the new platform.

After seeing the new specs, I decided to wait. About a month in a half ago, I put an order in!





2018 Premium Crystal White Pearl with 6-speed manual with black interior.

Add-ons straight from the dealer are going to be:
-Sunshade
-Auto-dimming mirror with homelink
-Body side molding
-Rear bumper cover
-All weather floor mats
-STi roof spoiler
-crossbars
-rear seat back protector

The main reason I wanted the side molding was 1) it will help with door dings in parking lots B) I plan on getting the whole front clip and the first half of the doors clear bra'd. I think the molding will be a nice "line" to bring the clear bra up to and somewhat hide the edge along most of the doors.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuesday I took a couple side profile shots for a before/after once a few things have been taken care of





This is what the STi rear spoiler looks like up close





So far ive really enjoyed the car. A couple things that I probably would not have gotten if I saw them first
-all weather floor mats
-subaru sunshade

I really like all weather mats, but these are kinda lack luster. Ill probably end up getting something aftermarket like weathertech or husky. Something that has more coverage and go up the side of the footwells a bit.

The sunshade is build nice, and seems like it will block heat out, but its a PITA to fold. Its more of an accordion style that has to be folded up a certain way to sit flat together. It does not cover the entire windshield because I think they cut them all to fit with eyesite just in case the car had it. Might get an aftermarket one as well. The ones (forgetting the brand name right now) i got for my civic and STi are amazing. Cut to fit perfecting and make a HUGE difference on heat in the car.

Wheels and tires showed up yesterday

Method 502 VT-spec (15x7+15)
BFGoodrich ALL-TERRAIN T/A KO2 235/75/15




Unfortunately did not get to test fit them, although I dont think they will fit as is anyways. BUT I do have an order in with Anderson Design Fabrication for one of their lift kits. I also couldnt test fit because the car got dropped off at Detail Maniac to get the entire front clip, and part of the doors clear bra'd

Not so much, as it is still going to be my daily driver. 1.5" ADF lift kit. The wheels are also larger than stock and should lift it a little over another half inch.

Stock vs whats going on.

I dig it. I'm still sourcing the bits in need to give the WRX and 1" in front and 1 3/4" in back using JDM STi Forester bits and a small spacer in the rear. Then I'm looking at new wheels with205/65/15 or stick with my volks and get 215/65/16s... we'll see
