You're not allowed to sell your car, because I wanted it. This will just anger me and I will probably go into a blind rage and something something murder something something!!!

Build quality on the 06 is better. The manufacturing that was involved making the frameless doors. The A B and C pillars all had to be re-enforced to accomadate for it. Its the little things and attention to detail that counts.

Luv my hatch. A bit more work and money to get the same experience as your 07 but a lot less unwanted attention. Still a lot of fun to drive.

No thoughts of waiting for a 2015? Hell wait for the 2015 and see if the price comes down on the hatch. Might not happen because only so many sti hatches available as there wont be a hatch after 2014.

Definitely hold out until the 2015 debut. Between the 07 and 10 though, I'd steer towards the 10 for personal taste.

Substantiate this beyond frameless doors, reinforcements to accomodate a frameless door does not equate to a better built car.
