This is my first post.
This past weekend I visited my local Subi dealership. I was interested in a '13 WRX, but there are none to be found. Two dealerships informed me that WRXs are difficult to find and/or they don't stay in inventory very long. First question: Is this a result of supply and demand?
My dealer said the last batch of '13 Subies should arrive this month. They may get three...
I then thought I should just order what I want. So, I told my dealer I will order a '14 for Nov or Dec delivery.
My dealer told me that '14 orders started this past weekend. My Salesman told me it will take about 12 weeks from order to delivery.
My preliminary order will look like this:
'14 Subi WRX; Ice Silver Metallic, 5 Door, Sat Radio, Body Side Moldings, Cargo Net, All Weather Mats, SPT Perf Exh, SPT Turbo Boost Gauge, SPT Turbo Heat Shield, STI Front Lip Spoiler, STI Short Throw Shifter, STI Shifter Bushing
First time Subi owner. I'm buying this car b/c I want a performance vehicle w/AWD for inclement weather.
2nd question:: I'll start forum searching... For a quick answer: Is the SPT Performance Exhaust a worthwhile expense/option? I don't want too loud, but I want a nice sound that also adds some performance benefit.
3rd question:: Is the STI Short Throw Shifter a nice/worthwhile option over what is standard. I don't plan to race, but I want a nice smooth tranny shift. Any other options I don't need, above?
Tks a lot/Cheers,
