I actually like the car. Everybody hates the way it looks it seems? I think it is one of the best looking since 2005. There was always something funky about each version that really turned me off but this one seems to check all the boxes.

Things i don't like, another EJ motor...? WTF... let it go already... That motor series is 26 years old! I love my EJ... in my 14 year old car.

They're touting a bunch about the handling. I'm really liking the steering! 13:1 is nothing to sneeze at. Still one of the best mods I think I've done is the q-rack and I'm baffled as to why it isn't more popular. Everything is better in a quick ratio car.

But the "no body-roll" appears to be from upping the swaybar size from 21mm front/19mm rear to a whopping 24mm front/21mm rear! That's a huge step up and it's fairly obvious why. Look at any "i wanna do my first mod" thread and you'll see swaybars on that list in the replies.

Either way... Like the look, will wait for a properly new car(motor) though.

I'm okay with the front, but everything else is just a Camry in disguise.

I'm surprised they made another ej car, considering the wrx has the new engine. If it were my money for a 2015, I'd go wrx all the way. Still 6 speed, a bit less power but a modern engine.

Seriously, the scoop, fin and wing look so out of place on it. It's like some dude bleaching and spiking his hair and donning spiked bracelets in the office as he desperately tries to cling to his youth. Either ditch the suit and go full punk, or just accept your bland profession and be content with making dollarbucks from the masses.

Clearly they are identical to you... so why overpay.

Stupidest thing I have seen so far.

I recall reading some where that the wrx will have the 6 speed as a option now so no need to do a swap !

Can't find the link, but WRX and STI are only offered as sedans now.
