We have the same brakes as all 08+Wrx minus the front rotor size difference (assuming you have discs all around). The fronts on the Wrx/2.5i are 2pot and rears are single pot setup. 06/07 Wrx have the 4/2pot setup, thus the physical and visual difference.
Just to be clear, the 4/2 pot brakes off the '06 and '07 WRX are not a significant upgrade from the current 2/1 pot brakes. The pads are the same size and produce the same friction/braking power. The only difference is the visual aspect and slightly better pedal feel. Not to mention that with the bigger 4 pot calipers, it limits your choices for wheels.
