Default what accessories are worth it?

My car came with splash guards, the clear rear bumper thing and the nice front plate bracket (which seeing the alternative I'm really glad I have).

I'm almost def going to get some all-weather mats soon.

What other accessories (aftermarket or subaru) do you guys think are worth it? I am also considering the trunk liner to keep things from sliding around and to make it easy to clean.

You might want to spend the extra money to get Weathertech floor liners instead of all weather mats, nobody ever regrets getting them. If you didn't have the splash guards I'd say get the Rally Armor guards, because it's just the Subaru thing to do.

^^ this. i didnt want to wait for the weathertech and now i regret it. also back seat protectors are good. side cargo nets are good. those are the should have.

things that would just be ok, brighter LED interior lights. if manual, sti shifter bushing. better tires. roof rack.

so you are recommending aftermarket floor mats versus the subaru ones? what makes them worth the extra money? I would assume they fit like an OEM mat or you wouldn't be recommending them.

back seat protectors for when the seats are down? not a bad idea i guess...

the aftermarket weathertech covers more area than the OEM. the OEM does not cover under the gas pedal and the weathertech does.

They don't impede the pedals at all and they do catch all the crap that normally finds it's way in between OEM mats. Take a look at them on the Weathertech website, they're much more form fitting than OEMs.

I need that hood deflector, that's for sure. 3 little chips on the hood already
The one thing I changed on my Subie which I absolutely love is the rear sway bar to 19mm STi. The car handles a bit better and no screeching from the tires when taking corners.

well there is no 2013 listed and when I go to 2012 it says impreza/wrx/sti and then when I select the all-weather mats wrx is the only option. is it the same floormat? since the 2012 impreza and wrx were pretty much completely different I wouldn't have expected the floormats to be the same.

The product I'm recommending is the DigitalFit FloorLiner, not the all-weather floor mats.

Not sure if the '13's have it but the oem armrest extension! I couldn't believe the difference. Also tinting the windows is a nice investment. +1 for the rear sway bar as well.

definitely get the weather tech floor liner(s).

i have:

weather tech floor liners - it's worth it if you can skip the all weather or regular subaru floor mats IMO. the $$$ could be put towards the weather tech's.


GoPro Hero2 w/ mount.

LED's for the interior dome/map lights

rear bumper guard

Cobb Short-throw shifter w/ bushings (on order)

Red overlays for the tail lights (got em on Ebay)

H9 hyper white bulbs to replace the H11 low beams

Tinted windows...

rear cargo net (attaches to back of the eat in my WRX... Impreza's have a dimple you drill to mount, allegedly).


i need to get:

Rally mud flaps - need to decide on what color though

*Under-chin lip - i already scraped my god damn bumper pulling a 3-point turn in a steep driveway.

side cargo nets

cargo area weather tech liner - i may or may not get one ASAP.

The mats are $149 which is an awesome price but shipping via FedEx ground to Sumas, Washington is $52.84. Was there a promotion for free shipping or cheaper shipping when you ordered?

shipping is def their downfall. cheaper for me to just order from the weathertech website.

so these floor liners - are they sort of all-weatherish? I actually don't need the ability to catch tons of crap.

they are.... Um.... Yeah.


I've had mine in Since late August and did NOT believe how much crap i actually track into my car.

They make vacuuming a breeze and you just hose them off. No need for floor mats for the rest of your life.

Okay, seriously, if you live in AZ or So Cal, work in an office, don't have kids, pets and what not... You might be good with just regular floor mats...

I'm in New England... Winter is almost here.

Regarding the Weathertech floor liners, can anyone comment on how they feel to your feet? I mean, I worry that my heels will slip on the plastic. Or are they rough and will grip your feet as well as the cloth floor mats?

Couldn't find a discount code for the WeatherTechs but they are awesome! Pretty much the stuff mentioned are all good accessories for our cars. So far I've done the following the 2 months I've had mine...

WeatherTech Floorliners (front and back)
OEM rear seat protector and cargo mat
Cargo nets and interior led bulb upgrades
Rally Armor UR mudguards
STI 19mm rear sway bar upgrade
Kicker 6 speaker upgrade
Hella Supertones
and a few smaller mods

I plan on doing the tail, turn signal, marker and reverse lamps with LED bulbs (DRL/Hi, LoBeam and Fogs I am leaving alone as they work great). Gonna put Lamin-X clear film on the headlamps and probably yellow overlays for the fogs...whew.
