So according to the salesman I am speaking to the WRX Premium (which is what my 08 is) is the same as the WRX but adds fog lights, heated mirrors and heated wipers (which is exactly what my 08 has over a standard wrx). If you go to subaru.com and build the car it states that a power tilt/sliding-glass moonroof is also standard on a WRX Premium.. He is telling me its an option..

What I am trying to do is get basically the identical car to my 2008 but brand new.. I despise sunroofs especially in subarus and would rather have the heated seats, mirrors and wipers. Anyone have an answer to whether it comes or doesnt come with the moonroof?

The Premium package includes a sunroof on both the WRX and STI. This is based on looking at what the printed sales brochure says and the website too.

Why do you "despise sunroofs?"

The WRX has 3 Packages, the WRX, WRX Premium, and the WRX Limited.. He is leading me to believe the WRX Premium is an optional sunroof, and is standard on the Limited as it is on the Limited STi..

Sunroofs in Subarus lower the roof line to much making head room non exhistant for me.. It may not be an issue in the 08+ cars with much more head room, but my 07 limited drives me nuts with my hair always touching the headliner..

Oh crap yeah I was seeing Premium and thinking Limited. It's standard in the Limited but in the Premium I'm not sure.

I'm 6'4 and have a very long torso and I don't have any issues in my STI with the sunroof. In fact I didn't have any issues wearing a helmet inside it for the track day I did a few weeks ago.

The sunroof was standard with all premiums & limiteds in 2011.Unless they have changed options for 2012,then it should be the same.

Fog lights are standard on the premium? I thought they were options on all 3 trims.

I'm also not a big fan of sunroofs.

Good to know this, I had no troubles in my standard 02-07s but had to reclined the seats a good amount in the 07 STi LEs especially with helmet as I am about the same height as you with it mostly torso.. There is a ton of headroom in my 08 and 11 so maybe I will just get the sunroof even tho I don't really want it..

Why?Hard to explain.I've never had a car with a sunroof.I guess i just do not like the look.

I just got back from a drive in my brother's 911.I actually like his sunroof.It isn't made of glass & the roof looks clean.
