S, SE have the pictured setup. SEL and Titanium have the cupholder setup you have. Those inserts came from Ebay. I'm not sure they will fit the SEL and Ti cupholders, but don't you already have a rubber insert?

Mine is only an SE (with 203A), and I don't think there are any inserts in there. I'll double check.

My SE Sport has the different center console with one small and one larger cupholder and the coin holder and outlet are behind them.

Be thankful you don't have these cup holders as they are pretty much worthless. The rubber inserts helped some. I'd also like a armrest :(

gf picked up an SE (not sport AFAIK,but has the sync and 6 speaker audio package, not sure exactly which package that is) a few weeks ago, new, 50mi, for $15,000. in a manual. she wanted a manual and enjoys it.

im not too impressed with the manual trans in this car personally. the clutch is too light for my tastes, feels like you are barely doing anything and reduces the feel when trying to feather the clutch, which is necessary when setting off in first gear due to the lack of power. but maybe im just used to the heavy clutch in my car (2010WRX). the gearing is also relatively long for a lower powered car. shorter gears would definitely help that i think.

also, the shifter is sloppy as all hell, with very little feedback. but maybe that can be remedied with some stiffer shifter bushings (is this a cable shifter? or mechanical linkage?)

not sure how a motor mount will fix the light and bland clutch pedal feel? thats almost totally dependent on the clutch master/slave cylinders and the pressure plate. im sure it would improve the vague shifter feel a little though, by reducing motor movement. im going to assume you mean a urethane aftermarket MS3 mount? unless the stock MS3 mount is not rubber like most OEM motor mounts are.

also wont fix the long gears. but i digress.

so does this car have a cable shift linkage? or a mechanical linkage?

How does she feel about the clutch? I personally prefer the Ford unit to the Subie. It is nice and light, I can tell exactly where I am and I think the shifter is great and nearly perfect with listed mods.

Cables for the shifter

Stock MS3 Rear Motormount, most have found truly aftermarket ones to be too stiff with high duros...

MS3 vs Stock


Peruse the forum and see what other people are saying and doing...

I send my congrats to your GF... Why isn't she posting?
