No Intermittent Wipers for 2013 WRX?

I bought a 2013 WRX at the beginning of the year. I got the Premium version, with heated seats etc., etc. The first time I drove in the rain I was stunned to find out that it did not have intermittent wipers.

I looked around, found a good video on adding intermittent wipers to an older WRX (2007?) and figured it would be pretty much the same drill for my car... swap out the standard module for the intermittent module. I went down to the local Subaru dealer and the guy in the parts department says it's not possible to retrofit intermittent wipers on my car. This seems really odd to me.

Any better info out there? Has anyone done this?

Thanks!

Back to my original question: Is it possible to retrofit intermittent wipers on a 2013 WRX?

And just to be clear, my current wipers have three speeds, fast, normal and and a bit of a delay which counts as only somewhat intermittent. I'm looking for wipers that have variable delay.

There should be a turning part of your lever that'll change that speed. Take a pic of your turn signal lever for me.

Thanks.
