I have in fact never heard of the term "port installed options". I bought my first Subaru this summer and I am a noob, as we all were at some point in time and appreciate the info from kbb. With that being said, I saw the post stating that these parts are installed at the "port" in the U.S and i made a stab that neither of these parts are literally installed at the port, border or functional equivalent of the border of the United States despite the term "port installed" because they are not. Whatever.... Moving on now...

not all ports can be accessed though, so then what do you do?

Yes they are. I don't know how many times I must say this but I work at the dealer. When a car comes through and already has certain options installed ie:boost gauge, short shifter, sub, remote start they are port installed. I'm guessing you must be right because you own a wrx so you know everything. Me on the other hand am employed to work directly with the product and have installed accessories and know how everything works.

Help me to understand, so Subaru and I assume other manufacturers have a garage stocked with parts and techs on staff at or near the ports where the cars come in doing accessory installs?

Well judging by how nice and clean the wiring was done on the trailer lights on my hitch they seem to know what they're doing. I expected the dealer to install the hitch and figured I'd be doing the wiring myself but when I looked it was already done and done well.

I never once stated that I know everything about these cars. In fact, I actually stated that these cars are new to me. You work at a dealership? Awesome. You will know more about these cars and parts than I ever will. I work at one of these ports and I found the term "port installed" interesting because from an inspectors stand point I can tell you nothing actually gets installed at the port of entry. I would like some clarification as to what they refer to as a port though just out of curiosity. No need for any attitudes on here. I am not trying to be a know it all. We are all on this same forum for the same reason. That reason being that the Impreza platform is a great car.

I have stacked short shifters and am happy with it. OEM short shift linkage with kartboy lever and bushings. Real tight notchy shifts.

Which port do you work at? As a matter of fact I can tell you're a homo. Dude you in the detroit area. Subaru ships to the east coast and west coast. They aren't going to ship to detroit. Neither would any other foreign car manufacturer.

This is from an article I will post:

"Unlike Honda, Subaru does much of its customization of cars right at the port. This work, which includes installing navigation systems, roof racks and spoilers, requires new employees. Subaru and Auto Warehousing partnered with RichmondWORKS to fill these positions with Richmond residents."

http://richmondconfidential.org/2011...ichmond-debut/

That should put to rest this ridiculous argument from those who have no clue what they are talking about.

Real tough guy here on the Internet resorting to name calling. No **** subaru doesn't import through Detroit. They use the sea ports for that. We see mostly Chrysler products coming through from Oshawa, ON.

Ps. Good article. Very informative. I talked to a buddy of mine at the Charleston, SC port and he has never heard of this either. As far as the attitude goes... shove it.

Sorry it's difficult dealing with idiots on here such as yourself. People who speak without knowing actual fact. They just try to strand together what they believe is fact just like you did. Ok you worked at a port in detroit that imports chryslers from canada. It's not Subaru. The fact that you laughed that little guys at port installed options was hysterical to you. Again I know and I proved you wrong. Even pulled up a nice article that even shows you what they look like with the body of water behind it. lol. So next time you open your mouth thinking you know something think twice.

You are an idiot for trying to be a tough guy on the Internet. We all learn a thing or two from time to time.

I've been wrong plenty. But for the sake of being on forums and attempting to state facts I don't generally say anything unless I'm damn near sure I'm correct. It's just the way I roll. I don't like spouting off false information on forums because then morons will take what I just wasn't correct about as fact. I see it all to much on this forum and it's very annoying.
