Care to talk about differences between the two? What you like vs dont like etc.
Well, on WRXs alone:

I had a 2012 WRX (EJ25), vs your 15+ WRX which was the introduction of the FA20 engine. One thing you'll read about is that the torque comes on earlier with the FA20 and turbo lag is not quite as bad. Now with the STI, it still uses the same EJ engine, so your power is going to come more in the mid-range vs low-range to the FA. A lot of people like the new 15+ WRXs for this reason and you can buy other things to make it rival the STI.
