    New to ClubWRX.net! Manual trans swap q's and exterior trim wtb

    Hey everybody!
    Just dropping in to greet everyone and see if there's any other Wisconsinites in the club! I own a 2002 WRX sedan and have not yet decided where I want to go with the car, possibly a manual transmission swap so if anyone has any advice and price estimates that would be great.
    Glad to be a part of the club!
    p.s. if anyone has any exterior trim for sale for the column between the front doors and rear doors I am interested in buying it, and also I would like to buy any interior trim if possible, thanks!

    Expensive and generally not worth it if the car is auto.

    Then stick with the auto.. or pay more than the cost of the car to swap it to a manual.
