My only problem with it is that, in my opinion, it looks pretty bland. Not very aggressive. I feel normal people would think it looks like a Corolla or Camry, but that's just me.

yeah, in a way, it does. The STI looks great in silver, or white. I think in red it looks bad, lol. And the blue makes it look more like a toy now, lol.

We have a local dealer who does WRX orders at like $3K under MSRP.. quite amazing/tempting. STI usually had for about 2k. 4-8week wait.. well worth it.

Is anyone else lamenting the loss of ULHs? Are you able to retrofit them onto the FA?

A turbo boxer with ELH sounds even worse than a turbo I4 IMO.

All year round they are about 10-15miles west of Chicago, usually very easy to work with, etc. PM me if you want more info, but Iíve seen guys getting pretty good deals, whether itís a base model or a limited WRX, some pretty deep discounts.


I kinda do miss the sound, yeah.

Yeah unfortunately it won't work with the turbo setup on the FA20. But it still doesn't sound that bad at all with ELH's. Here's my WRX with a Catted Turbo back exhaust.

I'm personally happy for Subaru changing it up and finally putting in a new engine. It's about damn time. Not because the previous engine isn't great, because it definitely is and can handle a lot, just that people like change every now and then.

Normal people matter. Hardly. Drive what you like. You will never ever be able to please all. Just you.

I love my STi and the thread by GunKata here was part of me exploring the purchase when I was tired of my GTi. It is soooooooooooooo much more fun than my GTi was. No way I will go back to VW. I look way forward to the next one - newer/updated WRX/STi

Agreed, I love my WRX as well. Coming from a GTI the WRX 15+ is a lot more fun and not to mention the handling is miles better. If the GTI is the extent of your performance car experience, I encourage anyone who can get access to a 15+ STI or WRX to take one to the twisties and rip on it...

I agree with both of you guys. Just wish it looked sharper. I'm still definitely interested in a base WRX running on E85 w/ FBO.

A WRX with FBO's on E85 makes some good numbers for a stock turbo, seen some hit a hair below 400AWHP on a mustang dyno. The new platform responds very well to E85 with just a DW65c or DW300 pump. Stock injectors are more than adequate for 100% E85
