Yes, no more 4EAT, only CVT, which should be a huge improvement.

SOA Blog has stated that the Forester XT manual wasn't selling enough. This was confirmed by other members that are Subaru sales reps that claimed the Forester XT manuals wouldn't leave the lots for months at a time. It's unfortunate for us enthusiasts that so many people don't care about such things. A 6-speed manual Forester XT would be the hotness for sure.

I'm really curious to see how many people will buy a Forester XT FA20DIT engine and drop it in the BRZ/FR-S? I know I want to try! The low-mounting of the turbo makes it kind of iffy for me, though... the cars are already so low to the ground.
