The '06 "teardrop" remotes can be programmed in this way as well (and in fact can be used on '05 Subies as well). At some point the programming technique changed to the "punch the remote number in with the door lock button", but it wasn't '05
The older remotes that are somewhat roundish can be programmed using the 1st method I posted. The tear drop remotes have to be programmed using the second method. I think 2006 and up have the teardrop remotes and 2006 and older have the roundish remotes
