Subaru loves weird acronyms. LEVORG= LEgacy, reVOlution, touRinG. WRX= World Rally eXperimental…etc.

I always assumed WRX was World Rally Cross, but I never actually thought too much about it.

^ That augmented cabin sound sure is loud, its speaker needs a volume control stat.

I thought I read that the new Limited did get knee pads.... Weird if they were dropped.

Yes. That would be the best solution.

They do keep saying that they like the sound of it though, so I'm going to give it a shot before I decide if I want to have it disabled or not.

I liked Matt's review and the car is certainly faster in stock form. Much better review comparing to Dezoris review. He also mentioned somewhere that it still lacks some straight line speed, but it goes in corners as fast as a Boxster

The sounds only starts to come in around 4k. So probably not an issue putting it around town.

That's plastic though. Matt is talking about the padded kneepads the facelift got. I'm sure the aftermarket will provide. They did in 2013.

“Black resin” I guess that ain’t soft interesting items in bold on that sheet includes some of the aero stuff too. I assume others customers saw those spec sheets. My dealer let me see but said I couldn’t take them home so I took pictures.

So that's center console only knee pad, right?

He complained that he got bruises on track, but also he said that was "Premium with the crappy tires".
Perhaps in the new review he's complaining only about the left knee?

At least there is a mounting point for a better one. Like the GR86 optional kneepad accessory that was announced =D
