What is passionate about being lazy and redundant? Something tells me if I was willing to pay $54K for my RA I am a pretty passionate enthusiast about Subarus and previous to this car I owned 2 WRXs. Mindlessly making redundant threads does not make one an enthusiast.

I understand threads for major changes like the 3 major redesigns (every 2 years) to the GD chassis or when they brought the Sedan back and gave the wide body to the WRX from 11-14 but devolving to the point of every model year creating a new thread is just stupid and lazy. It screams I'MAUSELESSMILLENIAL. Which unfortunately I am lumped in with this generation.

It used to be that moderators actually moderated. It is not hard to make a quick and minor change to a thread title and move posts into it. Honestly a bumper redesign, bigger brakes, bigger wheels, a new short block and third gear is not significant enough to warrant an entirely new thread. That just sounds like a list of off the shelf mods thrown onto any of the many cars on this forum. In fact the 2018 thread should have been merged with the 2015-17 thread.

There have been zero major redesigns of these cars. No release of a hatch model or any other dramatic changes to the cars. Just minor updates. You can literally pull any part off my car and install it onto a 2015 STi with no issues and your average person would not be able to tell if it didn't come with that car. It is not like trying to mount a 2011 WRX bumper to a 2010 WRX or a Hawk eye front bumper onto a bug eye or blob eye. There are no incompatible parts that need major modification to fit.

Watching the bar get lowered over the years has been pretty sad. Off Topic is its own animal.
