All in all, I think I would have rather seen Subaru go more of a WRX TR or EVO RS approach, reducing the cost instead of raising it.

The suspension is the one thing I would most likely tinker with, so if they just threw on the WRX struts with valving to match the springs, that would be fine.

Think of it this way, if they put on Ohlins, then they would be "stock". There would still be those that would feel compelled to swap out "stock" for something "better". The market would become flooded with Ohlin take-offs, and down go RaceComp's sales.

For the cost premium of the leather covering over what is likely to be the same basic seat, I'd much rather see Cloth covered Recaro seats (like in the EVO) for my money. Also, I'm not sure who started it , but isn't there a long thread about the seats being the cause of the bouncies?

The sunroof I could go either way on. If something like this were to be my only car, then it would be a definite plus. However, since I'm fortunate to have an open air roadster, I'd rather not have to pay the cost.

The combo of WRX sized hood scoop, Euro rear deck spoiler, and new front end treatment are all pluses in my book.
