    It had the Navi/Stereo Upgrade/Keyless Entry package along with the short shifter.

    I want one but can't justify that $2500 package for the navi/stereo/keyless. I'd rather use my phone's GPS and upgrade the stereo down the road. Push button start was pretty cool tho.

    It was dark so I couldn't see the WRB that well
    I bet people will find a way to mod in the push button starts later.

    For those of you who are wondering what the FA20 sounds like in the new 2015 WRX. Here is a video of a guy over on NASIOC who dropped his new WRX off at Nameless Performance and had them make a cat back. Personally, I think it sounds pretty good.

    ^ It's amazing how fast this thread moves sometimes. That video has been posted 3 times now lol. I posted another video a few pages back of the 2015 with a straight pipe as well.

    I think it sounds really good, just wish the guy knew how to shift.

    Personally, I don't like push to start. I like to feel the key

    After having keyless go in my Focus ST I'm kinda feeling the same way. I probably would have gotten it had it been a stand alone option, but I didn't want the nav or HK. Glad it wasn't, something just feels so right about using a real key again.

    If you don't feel too comfortable, wait a year or two for any initial niggles to be worked out.
    As a side note, I once got called into HR after a meeting and was told I used "racist language". I was completely confused until it dawned on me; I had used the word "niggling". I asked the HR rep if she even know what it meant. She didn't and asked that I refrain from using it in the future.

    I truly laughed out loud on that one.

Another factor to consider is how people drive them - try putting a turbo on the RSX so you have a similar performance level, then hammer it around and see how long it lasts... I would bet that you'd see more trouble than doing the same in a WRX of any year
    Coming from a Turbo 2013 Civic owner switching to the WRX, the Honda/Acura engines can hold so much abuse that you would be surprised. I'm sure you've seen the amount of Turbo/Supercharged Civics/RSXs there are, it's not an uncommon thing. People have had those turbo'd for years and years without many issues at all besides clutch slipping/dying (clearly going to happen with the stock clutch and that much power.) Not knocking the WRX at all, I'm sure I will love it. Just saying not to underestimate Honda engines, they can take an amazing amount of abuse. :P

    Because it feels like you are starting the car and not just telling a computer to do it.

    I said I'd bet, but did not specify if I would win or lose it though! If you have experience then I am happy to take your word for it
