Lightbulb 2005 Impreza 2.5RS gets new "Sport" model

According to my source....In addition to the standard RS features the "Sport" model will get 17" Wheels, Momo Steering Wheel, Upgraded Seats, Upgraded Suspension and Unique Badging.

Thought you'd like to know.

17" wheels? If that's true, we can probably expect them on the WRX too. And if so... 'bout time!

The model you are referring to is the new RS Pro.I have not yet recieved all the specs but non of that would surprise me other than the 17" wheels as they are not even on the WRX.If they do end up on that model RS they sure as hell better be on the WRX too!

It would need DOHC heads then, I'm not seeing it.

Would be nice to see AVLS on the SOHC heads along with the equal-length header and a better flowing exhaust.

I'm not sure if the new 2.5 NA engines that are making around 30mpg include an equal-length header. The numbers only went from 165/166 to 168/166 with the newest itteration.

From what I understand all WRX get the 17" wheels too, I thought that had already been mentioned...sorry.

I don't know of any of this being true. My information and specs show 16 x 6.5, 55 offset for OBK Sport, RS + RSPro, and WRX. The wheel designs will be new 5 and 6 spoke on the OBK and WRX, but the RS and RSPro carry on with the current 5 split spoke wheel.

Well that's no more than an LL Bean model though I we realy shouldn't expect anything spec-wise to be updated.
