    Since you guys are talking about the stereo system, I'm debating on getting the HK system with the Navi and Push Button.

    If I don't go that route, what stereo would you recommend to upgrade the stock unit?

    Oooo...good point. And her radio is probably the worst I've ever heard in a car, period.

    Radio I listened to on my test drive was the stock non hk and it was terrible. Already have plans to put in all my own audio stuff

    Hi

    I am new to this forum. I need some help making a decision on my purchase.
    I have two buying options:
    1) Pre order for $25900 which will take around 6 weeks.
    2) A dealer has a car coming up in 3 weeks. He has quated $26500.
    This car has a STi short throw shifter , center armrest and a few small acessories.

    I wasn't originally planning to add any accessories.
    Are the shirt shifter and armrest worth spending $600 extra? And yeah with a lesser wait time.
    I dnt know much about a short throw shifter.


    Suggestions please.

    Thank you

    That's your call whether 3 weeks wait and a couple accessories are worth 600$. Do you want those accessories and do you need the car this second or can you wait 3 weeks. Also the wait time will probably be longer than 6 weeks. Most are getting their cars between 6 to 8 weeks. I ordered earlier this month and was told it would take until june

    I didn't get the short throw shifter, but my premium came with the extended armrest, at first I thought it was dumb, but now I'm glad it came with it. Also I was in your situation and decided to get the car sooner rather than ordering it and waiting, but that's mainly because I took it for a test drive and didn't want to leave without it

    If you are set on the purchase, put a deposit down on the first with the understanding that you can move it to the second car if you don't like the short shifter.

    I'd agree on that. Doing the HU tweaks and putting it into "through mode" seemed to help all non BT audio though.
