Honestly, how could you even look at a USDM and say it's better than the 22b.

Easy. The fantastic 22b is a picture in a magazine, or on my CRT. The USDM '04 STi is just outside my kitchen window and the key is in my pants pocket...

'06 = aluminum front lower control arms which results in more direct steering feel and lighter weight. '07's went back to steel. Also, the '06 has the 4-pot front brake calipers - '07 went back to 2-pot up front.

I voted Bugeye of course, and 04 STi, but I feel bad cuz it's been 5 years, and its that time, and Subaru (in my case) has impeccable timing, I want an 09, too bad I can't have both... so sad, I've always wanted to strip the 03 down and do it all custom, or keep it as a beater since it's been so reliable, maybe keep it for when I have a kid...<sniff>

Could this poll get updated or do we need a new one? Think favorite years for WRX and STi will remain the same though.

04-05 sti IMO were the best years as a race car, but I think 11-12 sti are the most reliable

22b look super slick and are one of my favorite but for USDM sti it's the 04-05 body style I like since I think it has some of the best body lines hence why I bought a used 05 in 06 rather then a new 06. If I went wrx in 06 then I would have gone with the 06 over the 05 wrx Because of the 2.5 liter motor.

But let's face it the 08 and up STI have a better stock handling platform then the 07 and below.
