    2011 wrx nub w/question

    Hi folks, just forked out for the 2011 wrx sedan. Got the premium package mostly because it was the first silver sedan wrx I have found on a lot in the last 3 months.

    Very happy with the car, but one lil thing is catching my attention already:

    The "port" installed a short throw shift kit, which I'm not necessarily opposed to but it doesn't feel perfectly smooth throwing it into first gear from a dead stop. It goes in and works fine, but the stick feels like its rubbing something on the way in to first gear. Anyone else with a similar experience? Am i just paranoid?

    Thanks guys!

    Welcome and congrats on the purchase.

    Are you throwing it into first while the car is moving or is this only when you put the car in gear from a stop?

    I'm not throwing it into first while in motion. I'm noticing this at red lights, dead stop.

    The stick just feels like its rubbing past something on its way into first, like theres a few little bumps. All other gears feel butter smooth, and if nobody else has anything like this I'm deffinitely going to have it checked asap.

    Been reading through the countless break-in threads tonight. How 'bout that? A nub that can use the search function!
