    For daily driving it is pointless especially on a stock tranny

    This.

    OP...what year is your WRX? Its also very possible you could have a snorkus delete or something like that, even if it is stock. That would make the stock BPV and blow-off surge more audible. But this is only the case with 02-07 WRXs...

    I guess the way i drive just doesn't leave any reason for it. 95% of my shifts end up with my rpm's dropping to exactly where they should be for the next gear (ex: shifting at 4500 and the rpms drop to 3k in between shifts which is where the next gear wants to be anyways. But whatever works for you go for it. Just not necessary for someone if it isn't already a habit

    I drive docile 99% of the time... I still find myself double-clutching. It's habit. They taught me in my performance driving class when I was 18 to double-clutch the downshifts and heal-toe into turns and I've done it ever since. I don't need to... but just do.

    EDIT:
    BTW in case anyone is interested, this is the way I was taught to double clutch (on the downshift) -->
    1. Push clutch in
    2. Shift into neutral
    3. Let clutch out
    4. Rev throttle to match downshift
    5. Push clutch in
    6. Shift into desired gear
    7. Let clutch out

    It seems complicated but it's become such habit that I can perform the whole procedure as fast as any regular downshift.
