    I'm new here; planning to buy a 2010 STi

    Hello, I've read quite a few of the posts and this place is great. I'm finally going to buy a car that's fun to drive. This is after owning a 2002 & then 2005 Legacy outback 5 doors w 4cylinder anemic power.
    Can one of these babies be ordered WITHOUT the stuff that says "I'm fast, agile & expensive!!"
    Quiet exhaust
    Minimal stripes
    Minimal badges
    Highest possible ground clearance for potholes and bumps (spoilers and such).
    Is the hood "scoop" functional?
    So... I don't really care what it looks like. I don't need to grab any extra attention unless I toot the horn, flash my lights or hit something.
    That said, what sorts of extras are best ordered with the car vs after market?
    What extras-options are just crap that adds unneeded complexity?
    Thanks in advance

    Well I bought a 2009 STi and you can remove most of the badges and honestly I have driven down logging roads in my STi and not had an issue with ground clearence. Yes the hood scoop is functional it directs air over the intercooler. Also, I would get at least the Short throw shifter option.
