    WRX vs WRX Premium? What is the actual difference?

    I am looking into purchasing a 2011 WRX sedan from a dealership. The ad for the car on the dealership's website does not specify that it is a "premium", but as I negotiate with the salesman about the price. He keeps referring to the NADA value for the premium (which is obviously higher than the regular option for a 2011 WRX AWD Sedan..) How do I know, based on features of the vehicle, that this car is actually the WRX Premium model? Would it say this on the title? Here is the link to the dealer page: Used 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX For Sale in Lynchburg, VA |

    Any information is appreciated! Thanks

    Premium has cold weather package (heated mirrors, seats), and roof that lets sun in.

    Sunroof, heated seats, defrosting mirrors, windshield wiper defroster thingy - all of those are on the premium. Also fogs and spoiler are standard on the premium, but can be ordered on the base.

    This. Mine is a base but I added fog lights on the order. Sunroof isn't even configurable. That one is definitely a Premium.

    EDIT: Actually the ad *does* say it's a Premium in the "Comments" section: "AWESOME WRX Premium and sunroof / moonroof"

    Nope. That is what differentiates the Premium from the Limited. The Limited adds everything on the Premium plus HIDs & leather.

    Dang, sounds like endless sources of electrical glitches down the road. Convenient things to have if you plan on trading the car in after a while.

    Are you sure about that? AFAIK the Premium & the Limited come with the All Weather package From 101cars-Hi/Lo Heated Front Seats, Heated Outside Mirrors and Front Windshield Wiper De-icer (on with rear defroster button)
