    What would one need to do for -30F temperatures and snow measured in feet not inches? (It was -5F this morning when I drove to work - car did not want to warm up!)

    For some reason, the WRX seems "humid." Every day when I drive it now, all the interior windows have ice on the inside of the window - anyone know how to fix that?

    I noticed that too. The other day I had condensation water spots on the inside. I just cleaned all the windows and used Rain X anti-fog stuff. When I breath on it they still fog, but we'll see how it works.

    I noticed when I have more than one person in the car the windows fog up so easily. It's annoying.

They cover the whole footwell and hold about a quart of melted snow. Highly recommended. Or get the WeatherTech ones. We've used them for years in many previous cars and trucks. however, I've read the WRX WeatherTech mats need trimmed to fit. This has not been needed on any of my other cars.

    Don't know about mudflaps. I'v eread the rears from a Outback fit, nut the fronts need cut to fit? Maybe it wasn't an Outback. Someone else chime in here...
    Thank you for reminding me about getting winter floor mats. I will be going to the snow on a regular basis and need a set of rubber floormats to protect the carpet and the carpeted floor mats. I may go with the WeatherTech ones. $89.95 a pair seems okay. Anyone have any other suggestions?

    Here's the Subaru brand ones from for only $41. They are out of stock, but you can check your local dealer. They can't be morethan ten bucks more locally.

    Here they are from for $40

    Neither say, so make sure that is all four mats.

    Like I said, I think I heard that you need to trim the weather tech mats. Not absolutely sure, though.
