    Zax I have it on my premium with nav and after playing with a few things it's OK but could have been better. Especially for the price of the nav option. The head unit seems to be the problem from what I've read around here.

    Do you have plans to upgrade the HU? Very curious how it will sound with just an upgraded amp.

    I've heard it doesn't work well with the STi but the regular WRX gearbox loves it?



    Just got back from my first highway trip (140 miles) and averaged 36 MPG doing 70-75 MPH.
    wow, great feedback on mpg, thanks man

    Anyone knows if tinted windows can be an option from factory with Subaru?

    I haven't seen it on their site, but a lot of dealers will have a third party they usually deal with do the tinting for you. Just need to talk with sales or service

    I think if you're wondering this then you're most likely going to do it yourself at some point anyways. Audio is such a subjective topic, I loved the oem bose speakers in my g37 ipl whereas most people hate it. Maybe it's because I'm getting old and prefer clear music with a non-window rattling sub. I say go for it, it'll be a fun weekend project anyways.

    I don't believe so. But most dealers work with local shops and can have it done for you.

    At some point down the road it's a possibility but we'll see!

    Tint

    It is my understanding this is another "factory option" and in searching around dealer inventory you will see it listed on some, along with other options like the short throw shifter, side sill plates etc. The one I test drove had 35% tints and it looked great however only the rear doors and window were tinted; they won't (or didn't) do the front door windows. The dealer said the tint was an option installed at the port of entry. They did tell me they could send the car out and have the front door windows tinted to match but I thought it might be best to get one without factory tint option and take it to a reputable place and that way they all would match. This is my understanding anyways... someone correct me if I am wrong ;-)

    No that sounds right. Each dealer does their own thing. They call it rear privacy windows...but I'd rather go darker and march anyway

    Sorry for the confusion, maybe I didn't present my question correctly..

    I meant factory tinted windows(the glass that comes from the manufacturer already tinted within glass like on the Forester: it already has the rear glass and both rear passenger windows tinted from factory, except for the driver and front passenger glass), this is not a laminated aftermarket film that can be applied by a third party or a shop after one already has the car. So if the WRX doesn't come with factory tinted glass, I'm just concerned about what damage could occur to the defroster on the rear window if one later on decides to change the tinted film we applied aftermarket, hence why I'd like it from factory, it's already within the glass.

    What I do know is that my STi is slightly tinted from the factory. It's hardly noticeable, but it's there.
