    I hate the "which car is better" dispute. It's all down to personal preference, you buy the car you like more. The reviews get pretty silly when you're comparing tenths of a second in 0-60 times.

    Exactly my point, and this extends to pretty much every car still under 50k in my book... there's just not much of a point in those kind of specifics.

I mean, not even a second slower, .8 slower than the manual, seriously? A tragedy...

    I'm just glad my wife agreed to getting an Auto-WRX as opposed to a No-WRX, and I couldn't be happier. Also why are people using a WRX as a drag racer anyways? It's a WRX, AWD gripping machine, they do two things really well, corners, and year round driveability. Manual or Auto, people need to love it for what it is in it's class and stop expecting it to perform more like a GTR.
    Yea, I was surprised when I seen it. All other reviews I've heard, from reviewers and current owners, have been good.

    This waiting is driving me absolutely nuts. I ordered a limited WRB with NAV/push button and a few other extras on May 8th. The order sheet says eta is last week in Sept. A few days after ordering my dealer (happens to be my father-in-law) said that was changed to August. I'm hoping for a late July delivery. VON is 55706.

    Received my Limited WRX (CVT) two days ago. So far the car has been great. However, I can already tell I will likely be replacing the Nav system once carplay units are available.

    They already are. Pioneer has them.

    I want to see what Alpine comes out with. I'm also hoping some models will eventually support carplay over wifi or work without having to connect your phone.

    How many people got the clear rear bumper applique with their cars? I'm wondering if I should have it installed.

    My car will have the NAV but I want to try to wait at least a year to see what the market comes out with. It's going to be hard to wait though.

    Has anybody tried to hardwire a radar detector yet on the 15s? I have a Escort 9500i and I am trying to get this harness to hardwire it in the dome lights area where the homelink mirror connects:

    Invisicord Products

    Not sure if I need the fuse or no fuse at all and if the install instructions are the same as '11 WRXs.

    I also ordered a WRB WRX Limited with Navi/HK/Push Button (no other options) on May 24th.

    I find it hard to believe that it will be over 4 months for you to get you WRX. September 8th will make it 4 months and you said last week in September... That's almost 5 months. No way!

    For people interested in an interior LED kit $50:

    2015 WRX & STI LED kit

    As soon as you enter a US state for shipping and Get Quote, price drops to $40.

    But then shipping goes up to $15, so total price is still $55.
