Default "Easter Eggs" on the '11-'13 WRX?

Any Hidden features you guys/gals have found with you're new WRX? Do the windows go down if you hold unlock on the keyless entry? Does the rear windshield wiper go from intermittent to fast speed automatically if you throw it in reverse? if you turn the key in the door clockwise then counter-clockwise and hold will it put all of the windows up or down? I'm currently waiting for my first subie but am interested in what you all can find!!! I'm sure others will be surprised as well

Funny you should say that. The first 2 are things found on older model Subarus. The windshield wiper changing speed by itself is from an '09 forester. not exactly sure which had the window feature. and many cars makes (yes mostly German makes) have the window down with key in door feature.

The only "easter eggs" I know of are the factory stereo button combos to turn off EQ and Loudness etc.

Actually the rear wiper does go full speed when you're in reverse.

And I don't know about anyone else but my side mirrors will turn a few degrees when I turn my steering wheel all the way. Also the auto dimming mirror maintains power, but will not dim when you're in reverse.

Ha!


My '95 M3 had far for more features likes that compared to my new WRX. It's an entirely different being.


Though, I do wish both front windows had auto down and up..

No. I just like it simple. That is why I got the WRX base. Too many gadgets and it just means more problems whenever it messes up on you later down the road. More money to fix if you can't do it yourself. Speaking of German or European vehicles, I hate resetting the maintenance oil light on them.

It should. When I put my '11 in reverse with the rear wiper on it speeds up to roughly double speed.

I had an Audi A4 wagon in Germany. I loved the windshield sprayer feature where you would spray the window and the wipers would cycle 3 or 4 times. Then they would wait 2-3 seconds and go one last time. This caught any of the remaining drips that flew off the wipers and streaked up the windshield after the initial spraying.

When I had my WRX at the dealer for recall work, they loaned me a 2012 Mercedes GLK350, all four windows had auto up and down.. VERY nice to have, made my subie feel inferior when I got it back

Also loved how the cruise control system works in that car.. too lazy to explain though
