I just bought a new 2011 WRX 5-door Dark Gray.
I absolutely love it so far, and i've only had it for 2 days!
The only thing i'm not 100% loving is the shifting. After reading up on the posts it seems the Short Shifter you can buy from Subaru doesn't seem all the good, or different from the stock set up. I wanted to get a different one...but I have a few questions first...
What are people opinion on the Kartboy Short Shifter?
In addition, what is the difference, or rather what would I need to buy; the one with or without bushings?

- What do the bushings actually do? (newbie question i'm sure...)
- I know the short shift, makes a shorter shift, and less play in the gears, but is the extra 50 some odd bucks worth also getting bushings...?
Does this void the warranty? Im assuming it doesn't since Subaru offers a similar part start from the factory, but i'm just not sure, and it is pretty important that I keep the warranty...
Im excited to join the Subie community and thanks for any input!
