Short shift as an option for manual transmission on new cars
I have been debating about getting another car on top of my Mirage for over 2 years now, my current long and wide work boot doesn't even fit my Mirage's 3 pedals that well. Mirage made me bigger because it made me lazy lol. And the pedals are so close together, I sometimes feel like I will mix up my foot pedals.
I was building a 2021 Subaru Impreza 5 door convenience (base model basically) online, and I put my usual pick of day 1 options: blue touch up paint, factory rubber floor mats, ... and I saw they have a $497 option for an STi short shift. Is short shift from the factory a good option? Maybe it's dealer installed, not sure the deal at all about short shifters.
Will this make my Impreza 70% faster without the WRX price tag?
With my big personal calamity of no legroom and possible problems with big feet, am hoping to get a true $19,999 type of deal on a new Subaru. If I work up the nerve to actually buy another car and keep my Mirage as a summer ice cream roundabout. Probably not cheap however.
