I test drove an '06 WRX Limited Wagon and took a close look at the front and rear brakes. Both front and rear calipers have a white "Subaru" sticker. The older style had "Subaru" cast into the caliper and then machined smooth so the words are shiny.

Also, it looks like the new grey calipers are the same way as the new red ones. Can you verify this?

I guess Subaru figured out it was cheaper to slap sticker on there instead of milling the calipers!

Yes, the new 4-pots do not have the "Subaru" cast into them. They're flat with the "Subaru" painted on. The old ones had it cast on the fronts w/ white paint over the top, and the old rear 2-pots had the "Nissan" milled off and "Subaru" painted on.
