This is my first Subaru and my first AWD experience. However after test driving a WRX in 2003, I knew I wanted one. So with my current lease running out I decided to get one. After a month of waiting, I was just ready for the 09 WRX I ordered to be here.
So far it is fun to drive, but I can't wait for it to break in so I don't have to watch the RPM's as much.
Here is the set up.
09 WRX w/ premium package in Spark Silver
Short Throw shifter
Center Armrest Extension
Auto-dimming mirror with compass & homelink
So far I think the iPod adapter and sub/amp are crap. When left connected in the vehicle the iPod does not continue playing where it left off when you turned off the vehicle. It doesn't play at all. You have to disconnect select what you want it to play and reconnect it. And let me tell you, it is very heard to reach with both hands when in a driving position. Anyone else have this problem?
Maybe the sub/amp combo will get better with age)
My first mod might be an in dash GPS nav unit. I'm looking for something with text to speech (that uses street names), the ability to take mainly voice commands, an outstanding iPod interface, bluetooth capabilities and the ability to interface with the existing steering wheel controls. Does anyone have any recommendations?
