    buying the wrx questions

    what are some factory accessories to look for such as short shifters and different shift nobs.

    also the catback offered by the dealer... what do yall think about it good factory upgrade or waste of money does it sound good and are there any gains over stock exhaust.

    Personally I wouldnt buy any upgrades, but thats upto you. If anything the short throw shifter might be nice. And as for subarus exhaust I wouldnt get it, not sure what you might get from it but I dont know anyone thats running one. Check this out for your exhaust choice Exhaust Video/Sound Clips. you can either get a full TBE or you can buy a downpipe then a catback. And you should get EM like Cobb accessport go check out there website for dynocharts and other info. Are you getting a 06 rex or older? If 06 you wont need an up-pipe at all, if 02-05 you will need one makes a big difference.

    Buy an aftermarket exhaust if you want to save some money and get more aggressive sound.

    The only option worth it, in my opinion, is the Autodimming mirror with Homelink. I love the fact that I can hit a button on my mirror and my garage door opens - the wonders of modern technology!

    Every other option can be had better and cheaper on the aftermarket.
