    New 2011 WRX

    Hello all,
    Just put down a deposit for a new black hatchback wrx that will be in in about 2 weeks. My question to you guys is, is it worth getting the short-throw shifter? What does this do that the regular shifter can't? Is it worth the extra $300+ ?
    Also, I know it says that premium gas is necessary, but is this just a recommendation? Does it absolutely need premium over regular?

    You need to run premium gas. It is not just a recommendation.

    You can get an aftermarket short shifter for a lot less than the dealer option, around 75-100.

    Only premium gas .If you do some research you'll find that the kartboy is the preferred short shifter.You can join the group buy here & get it for 30% off before March 31st.

    and if the extra expense of putting premium gas in the car is going to be a problem maybe its not the car for you.

    Lol yea when I heard it needed premium gas i was like omg it costs so much. Thats why I have a dodge stratus r/t that i put whatever into and drive it to work. I do drive my wrx to work just not as often because of the gas priceses. Made the mistake of putting e85 in just did that for a tank of gas and started putting 93 in it again. Wrx is an awesome car tho invidia exhaust and an AEM intake was well worth my money .

    hey mike, welcome to the club. the shifter is the best upgrade! well, haven't felt the SPT SS but the Kartboy is awesome (bushings are obviously most important). and definitely, as said above, premium only. ive only put 93+ in mine.

    The STS upgrade is a definite good choice. I stuck with the Subaru STS unit because I got the price down by rolling it into purchase and like that it is still fully covered by my warranty - which is not always the case when you go aftermarket.
