So I picked up my base 2015 Silver WRX yesterday afternoon. Only options I added were short throw shifter, and homelink mirror w/compass. I also ordered dealer installed fog lights and those will be installed sometime in the next few weeks.
In the past 12 months I have now owned a 13 BRZ Limited, 14 WRX 5 door, and now the 15 WRX. Some random thoughts between the three cars, and specifically the 14 vs the 15.
The 15 is really a good cross between the BRZ and the 14 WRX. Handling is noticeably sharper, suspension is much firmer, car is much more flat and plated (no body roll). Corners are eaten up and spit out with no problem.
15 shifter is better vs the 14, but throws even with the short shifter are longer than the BRZ.
Interior is noticeably imrproved vs the 14 and the steering wheel is amazing
The engine is a winner. More torque down low. Car feels faster due to more torque available through the powerband. 1st gear goes by in a flash. Hard to keep the car under 4K
Exterior wise, I prefer the 14 hatch because I prefer hatches. That said, the 15 is not a bad looking car, it is just more modern and refined overall than the 14.
Had they offered the LED's on the Premium model I would have bought it even though I don't like sunroof's.
What do you think of this price?

The led headlights r sick! Def worth getting the limited if you don't mind the leather. I chose the premium bc I hate Subaru leather. It's too thin and cheap. It ages very poorly from what I've seen. I love the grippy cloth. Feels better to me
