weird. maybe subaru realized the published numbers were wrong and put those stickers on so they won't be liable

haha. pillarless looks nice but it's a bit of a pain. even at stock height i already have to "fall" into the seat to get in. On the accord i grab the door frame above the window to make it easier to get in and i cant do that with this car. also, having to tell your passenger now to push or pull on the glass to open and close the door gets old. otherwise, you end up bending the window tracks and the windows won't seal against the rubber correctly when the door is closed. I had constant wind noise in the outback because of that.

Re: Jon's FRS

i push on the piece of black trim at the top of the door when i'm closing it from outside the car. this way i don't put any finger prints on the paint or glass haha. i've also had to literally roll out of the car a couple times it's definitely interesting getting in and out of, but just wait until you lower it haha.

Re: Jon's FRS

New steering wheel installed. The red part is a lot darker. The flash made it bright.

Xb led fogs are partially in. The whole fog kit will arrive tomorrow
