Default 05-07 Sti or 08 Sti?

I was wondering what the mechanical differences were between these Sti's? I know the 08 would be more expensive and so would the mods.

I'm sure there's some stuff I'm missing but yeah, they don't really change much.

Nitrided crank, DP, Intake are also different 08+

You can't go wrong with the 07's. They look sexy and like you said, most of the mods you will be able to pick up will be cheaper/used if you chose. It would be more convenient as well

I'm debating the same exact thing, love the 05+ sti, but after finding a nice 08 sti last night im in love with the hatch.. 08 sti is a little above my price range though :/
