    I think it's normal for our cars but if it bothers you that much take it to your dealership

    ive heard a lot of people complain about this in their wrx's. i think its the ancient transmission that subaru saw fit to stick us with. ive heard it has its origins somewhere in the late 1980's(unfortunately serious). but i could be wrong. although i havent had any problems in my ~7k miles it seems pretty common for people to think the tranny is notchy.

    ive heard some say it feels like their moving the shifter around in a bowl of marbles. is that what yours feels like?

    I'll take it in and see what they have to say..shifting around a bowl of marbles is a great way to describe it

    sometimes I feel that the gears are hard to find but it has to do with the OEM setup if I'm not mistaken.
    my 13' WRX didn't come with the STI short shifter and I also saw on a review about this matter of the OEM Gearing design from 3rd to fourth. check out this video they talk about it at around the 1:35 marker

    hope this helps
