Lets just say the older body style looks better. This new one may be faster, but the older one looks classier

If GM wasn't taking more charge of Subaru their vehicles wouldn't be getting uglier (all started with the B9 Tribeca, or Subaru Trailblazer). After the B9 they decided to put the hideous grill on the new WRX STi and WRX. Bad move, stop obeying GM, Subaru!

Well no one said "what do you like better, an STI or a Skyline" now did they

So you'd rather have a G35 coupe over an STi? Interesting choice. I would probably take the G35 over the STi too.

300 horsepower, 0-60 in under five seconds...definately nice figures, but the hood looks different...not bad, just different. I like the old look better, but I'd take this one too

Who cares about 0-60 when dealing with an Evo (for any car for that matter). Give me some real world figures here! Slalom? Skidpad? 1/4 Mile? Nurburgring time?

Well, it gets 69 miles on the slalom, with .90 g's on the 200 foot skidpad, ,runs 14.5 psi boost, couldn't find a quarter mile time, but probably low 13's, she goes for about $33,000, weighs 3351 lbs, and a somewhat respectable 18 city, 24 highway

The 2004 runs 13.8. I dont think the extra 3 horspower mader much of a difference for 2005.

The STi isnt that slow. I've seen the 2004-2005's do low 13s no problem. I forgot which place did this but they tried to get the BEST run possible with a stock 2004 STi and did like 30 runs down the 1/4 mile. The only mod was icing the intercooler. Their two personal bests were 12.75 and 12.79. Granted the average of most of the runs was 13.0-13.1. Now these guys were definatley the best drivers for the car. But I've even seen at the track STi's go 13.30s no problem. You'd have miss a shift or two to run 13.8 in one. Even a 99-04 Mustang GT can do a 13.8, barely, but it can.

The new WRX STi isnt that bad, the only really change in style, as I look at it, is the front end.
