    Engine noise...

    I know that the WRX typically has a loud engine. There's so much noise that as a newbie to Subaru's, I don't know what's normal and what's not.

    Can someone tell me if this is normal on a 12 WRX with almost 9000miles... Outside the car, the engine sounds normal. Inside the cabin, when in neutral on a complete stop, you can hear the engine. When you press the clutch down, still on neutral and on a complete stop, the engine noise quiets down just a little bit. I was worried it would be one of those infamous throw out bearing but it isn't a loud rattle. Just a faint engine noise change.

    Anyways, is it normal?

    Thanks in advance!

    videos will help as your description sounds "normal". So you won't get much feedback if at all with what you're describing. just putting my 2 cents

    It is not abnormal for engine noise to change tone or volume slightly when the clutch is disengaged.

    here is the sound... put your volume on high to hear it. the sound gets slightly louder when the clutch is disengaged and the sounds gets lower when engaged. It's obviously louder in the car vs. what's recorded.
