When I was looking at getting a WRX I was really looking for the most affordable way to do so. I had read on the forums that the fog lights are pretty much worthless, so they were out for me. Since I wasn't willing to get a premium or limited model, I just wanted a few things. Really the only options I considered were the spoiler and the short shifter. I could have gone either way with the spoiler, but when I came across a blue sedan w/spoiler on the lot I went for it. I ended up getting the short shifter, all weather mats, wheel locks and spoiler for under the MSRP starting price. In the end it comes down to you. Take a look online for sedans with and without it and make the choice. I like the sedan with and without the spoiler, just no STI spoiler for me. I think its just a bit too much.
