    Before doing the short shifter consider the bushings first. These bushings make the shifter feel more precise, in a way the short shifter never could.

    Yes! Ditto. I will be getting these as well. You can't beat the value!

    Well, I have the sales guy working up a quote for me on this:

    Black, Subaru WRX Limited
    + Navigation
    + 10" Kicker Sub + amp
    + Front Lip Spoiler (to prevent cracks and scrapes)
    + Center Armrest Extension
    + Dimming Rearview (without compass and without homelink)
    + All Weather Mats
    + Cargo Tray
    + Sunshade

    If the "price is right" -- after checking with a few other sources -- I'll be placing the order later this week! Do you guys have any idea of what sticker vs actual purchase price is on these? I have done a little research that is saying about 10-15% off, but I'd love to know what your experiences have been in the past.

    I'm in SoCal and just about every dealership I contacted was willing to show me the invoice cost on everything - including the car. Then, after a test drive, I asked that dealership to go under invoice on the car while keeping my accessories at their invoice cost, and the guy made good on that: $200 under invoice.

    I HATE haggling, but I didn't even have to do any. I simply stated that every dealer I talked to wanted to gimme the car at invoice and I asked him to beat that.

    Yeah I love my auto dimming mirror, and I would go for something other than the Subaru sub and lip

    Please research the fitment and install on any other front lip before purchasing. I spent too much for the OEM lip for a 2 reasons - perfect fitment and no drilling.

    +1 on ditching that little sub, especially considering that you will be doing some serious stereo upgrading later.

    GOT IT!
    Instead of waiting 10 weeks, I decided to take one that came in for someone else who backed out! See the details here!

    If you have any questions about why I went with what I did, ask me!

    Thank you for all of your help!!
