    2015 WRX premium

    My Hyundai Tiburon was totaled when I was stopped at a red light. The insurance company strung me along so it took two months to receive the check. I was conned by two dealerships of cars on the way who either lied and ordered a car, or sold the car to people who financed. Since insurance only covered the rental for a month I was car pooling and borrowing cars, so I couldn't wait 6-8 weeks. The second dealer tried to make it right but for a silver premium for the price of the limited. The dealer my brother found his auto premium wrx had a limited sitting there after hearing my story they gave a great offer.

    Its a limited manual with nav and Harmon kardon sound system, and center arm rest. The interior is a big step up from the last gen. The same could be said about the suspension. The low end spool keeps the break in a little fun. My brother tested and bought an CVT while I was looking for a manual. Comparing the two I will say if you don't like messing with the electrical go with the ungraded sound system. The navigation is better than most factory nav but ok compared to aftermarket. It does play video but requires a USB stick. The Bluetooth system is far better than Chevy(my rental) and very clear.

    I will say it feels like I could launch from 2nd and cut down the 0-60 numbers. The CVT is just as much fun as the manual.

    Thank you I plan to add mud flaps, clear bra, and tints. I think I might put the license plate in the intended spot since the predrilled holes are getting to me.

    You could wait until they have a plate delete for your car too

    I was going to do that but as I said the holes are getting to me. At 350 miles the exhaust is louder and the boxer rumble can be heard in the cabin now. The new engine sounds almost like a diesel in low rpm. You can hear the turbo start to spool in around 2500 rpm. The navigation is very delayed not sure if I'm supposed to update it immediately.

    Sorry to revive this but how do you like the stereo? I haven't read many impressions of the upgraded setup. The stock one is terrible bit is the Harmon worth the big bucks?

    If you are looking to modify the stereo. Then don't bother.

    If you want a decent stereo with no mods then yes it is worth it.
