Drove it... waited for it to rain to get a free car wash
Found out the squeaking I'm hearing in the front are the front control arm bushings. Local garage, loosened bolts, greased them, tightened back down... still squeaky Have to bring it back to have them try something else.
put it for sale.

It looks so much better with both seats in the same position. My GF screws mine up everytime.
My 2012 2.5 now has 93 miles.
I'm a little concerned with the noises this engine and trans makes. First off the 2.5 has an odd sounding 1000-1900 rpm almost air-cooled engine sound. Something I noticed today was in first gear accelerating theres a hard to describe metallic whine. Sound familiar to anybody?
I hope its normal so I can stop worrying about. The engine is still breaking in. I've only had the car for 2 days. At idle, the valvetrain sounds a little noisy too.
Dry it better.
Clay bar, polish, wax, then rewash and see if it's still there.
i put some gas in the 2.5t and boosted around with a new STi sedan. although we never raced it was a fun ride to the gym! <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/83480734@N03/7646642086/" title="IMG_1636 by rjkirtley, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8163/7646642086_240bff684b.jpg" width="500" height="374" alt="IMG_1636"></a>
Im anti-black wheels.
Finally wet sanded my entire hood. Used 3m trizact 3000 grit paper and a da sander. Then polished out with megs 105 and 205 and honestly I'm pretty damn impressed.going to get busy on the rest of the big flat surfaces this week.its awesome having nearly zero flaws and almost no factory orange peel on the car.
