I wanted one of these bad boys since i was around 10 so I finally went and grabbed one just happened to be new. So where do I start now...is there Bras for these or just go with the clear ones, also how do you get the XM radio to work is there something you need to buy and install or can you just start it up online?

Very nice! Looks great. Welcome to the forum. Do you have the xm server already installed with the antenna? If you do you have to get the number/letters combo from station 1 or 0 and create an account on the xm/sirious site, pick a plan, put in your info and that number off the radio or paper that came with it, send the signal the radio wait a bit 15-20 minutes and enjoy commercial free radio.would get clear bra installed if you're looking to do something like that.

Congrats! Have fun with it!

Nice Rex man! I'd also go for the clear bra over fabric. I've never seen a fabric one, but I'm sure they're made too.

Thanks man! Also when i hit the sat button to try to get to 0 it doesn't do anything just continues to play whatever I have on still. I'll look into the clear bra!

So then maybe you don't have the xm receiver/antenna installed? I think it would say on you window sticker when you bought the car if you have it. Even if you don't get xm with the car the button is still there but does nothing when you hit it. I didn't get xm when I bought my car, i bought the Subaru kit and installed it myself. My button did nothing until I bought the receiver and antenna then it went to channel 1 which is the advertisement station. It's all plug and play and very easy to install if you have basic mechanical ability. I bought the kit from heuberger subaru it was cheaper than my local dealership.

Thank you good sir!

arewmors 10-17-2013 10:47 AM

Certainly. Let me know how it all goes.

Also any easy/beginner mod's that wont void my awsome warranty haha

window tint, shift knob, de-badge the trunk because it's so cluttered with all that chrome badging, rally armor mud flaps, rims. Those things shouldn't void any warranty. That's all I cant think of at the moment.

I also installed the factory trunk sub which is plug and play and very easy install and fits nicely in the side of the trunk and has pretty good sound. I did that when i installed my xm receiver/antenna. Also did the under the dash aka footwell illumination lights under the dash when i did the xm and sub, again those are plug and play as well if you get the subie ones. But if you did these yourself and you run into an issue down the road they would probably give you hard time about warranting it. I installed them myself, I'm fully capable of doing it, the dealer charges too much to do when I can do it and know it's done right and I am happy with it.

I remember when I bought my car, I was fully against any mods because I didn't want to void my warranty after a year I got over that feeling and went stage 2 over the summer FOL!

EDIT: I don't know how you feel about the chrome/silver fender badges but you can plasidip them or I bought the new badges from the 2013 tangerine special edition and replaced them. They are just stuck on with 3m tape.

here is my build thread if it helps with any ideas or thoughts. it's nothing crazy.

Sounds good. Best of luck. Need any more help or have questions let us know on here. Get yourself an avatar picture up as well! :D

Are these the mud flaps? I can't find any specifically for the 14 just these and they all look alike.

same with the ones directly from rally armor.

the RIOT act 10-18-2013 05:27 PM

Nope. You want something labeled 08+ man. Here's the cheapest prices I could find on eBay. Rally Armor flaps are double the cost...not really worth the double pricetag IMO.

Rokblox makes em...

[B]Rally Armor also has a new "basic" mud flap that is a 1/3rd the price of their URE items.[/B] I'll get the basic item for my '04 WRX now, but I've used their URE flaps on my STi and they are great. Pricey, but great.

By the way, nice purchase, nice color and welcome to the forums.

I recommend getting involved in driving your fine machine, before modding it much. You now have unlimited access to Autocross, Navigation Rallys, Performance Driver Training and Lapping Days in which to enjoy your fine auto the way it was meant to.
