265 hp compared to 210? more torque, more boost, let's just say more better. lol

Difference between 08 and 09 WRX is the power (obviously), stiffer suspension, and the better looking aero kit all around the body.

I rather keep the 05 sti. I still think that 05 sti looks much better than 08 wrx and the performance too.
