    Just wanted to say Hello!

    I just ordered a 2015 WRX Limited with the auto transmission in Galaxy Blue - only options were the extended armrest and the home-link mirror.

    I recently had an e39 2000 BMW M5 but after almost 280,000 miles, tons of maintenance and a wreck, it was time to order a reliable sports car so, here I am.

    Looking forward to learning more about these great cars - mine should be in around May.

    Welcome! I've always wanted an M5 (or at least a 540), but I certainly couldn't afford one new and, by the time one got to my price range, I figured the added expenses would eat me alive.

    Welcome!

    I Wonder if Subaru will figure out how to keep the homelink mirror from falling off on the '15s!

    There was an automatic option for the first 5 years of WRX's in the US market. Probably longer in other markets. It's certainly not unprecedented, in fact you could argue that not having one was a departure and they are returning to roots haha.
