Who cares about the loss of boxer rumble when there is a clear performance gain and CVT is a good thing...the 6-speed is long over due and why would anyone expect Subaru to design a custom 6-speed for the WRX as they would an STi?? A decent automatic transmission will ensure that more vehicles are sold...an uptick in WRX sales due to a CVT providing a decent hp to mpg bragging rights only means all of us who want to see the WRX continue to be built have that much more insurance that Subaru will continue to invest money into a product for us. Looks are debatable...but the more I see the WRX the more I like it...I am sure it will look good in person but my main interest is the STi...I don't know why everyone is holding this WRX to STi standards. It performs more like an STi than it should already IMO...and people are complaining about it.
