    Looking to order an 09 WRX
    Could use a little advice as to which items everyone likes and dislikes as a factory add on?

    Take care

    Hmm well they are working on the 2010's right now so what is on the dealer lots is what is out there. I did get a DGM 09 prem. Was looking for white or DGM. NO whites left tho.

    Anyways here goes. Mine had STI short throw shifter. Like it never tried the stock but was told this was alot better. It also has the rear bumper cover. O i have a hatch so supposed to keep you from scratching the paint.

    I did tint the car as dark as legal. 3 thumbs up if i had that many.. helped the looks a huge amount.

    Sport mesh grill. Better than stock but lost the WRX badge. Still like it better tho.

    STI front lip spoiler. Like it.

    I did have all weather mats. Never go back to carpet ones here. Way easier to clean. Sounds weird sand is a pain where I go. Throw em on the ground hose em off.

    Im going to tint the tail lights next. Should help not to crazy about the all clear ones. Here is a few pics .

    I went with the premium for the sunroof, a must for me. Short shifter as well.

    If you're into music at all, and aren't going to be adding a sound system, consider the Subaru subwoofer add on. It's not fantastic, but it helps out quite a bit.

    I was going to get the Navigation, but couldn't justify the $2500 they were asking for it. I dropped in a Kenwood DNX-5120 for $700 installed myself, and am very happy with it.

    Other than the head unit, I have stock speakers and stock subwoofer (under drivers seat). I'm perfectly content with the sound like that.

    The fog lights add a great look as well, but I think it's a $500 option and I wasn't about to pay that living in Southern California. The navi (from sub or aftermarket) is almost a must - blue tooth phone integration for me is more functional than either the GPS, iPod, SD card or the DVD player (again california, hands free laws). Tint option would be great, but you can get a better price outside of dealership (unless you say to the salesman at final price.......well....i dunno......throw in tint and it's a deal)
