We shall see. I have a few wheels planned for this car, so it should really transform the car.

I debated briefly waiting for the 18 STI, but there wasn't anything that they announced that really jumped out at me. I dislike the updated front bumper (I like fog lights), the 19's wheels are too much for this car (more expensive tires and rougher ride), and the bright brake calipers are too flashy for me. I do like the interior updates though, but it wasn't enough for me to wait for it. I figured I would hop in a 17 for now and by the time the new motor is in the STI and I wait a year after it's in production, it should put me right at the 4 year mark. Good timing to upgrade
I totally agree with what you mentioned about the rim size of the STI 18. 19" rims are too expensive for tire maintenance and there would be less shock absorbance. That was one of the deciding factors for me when I was buying my 2017 STI.
