    This is why I didn't test drive the STI first - I am already $7k over budget buying the WRX

    If LSD was an option on the WRX I bet so many people would pay extra for it. It's great to see you enjoying the car, can't wait for a review once you start driving her a little harder!

    If the WRX received the LSDs the price would be the same as the STi and the STi would lose its value prop

    They are awesome. Literally everything that makes HIDs great with a more even light distribution.

    What I am most impressed with the new STi is that, despite the massive increase in chassis rigidity, the interior rattles are gone! Kudos Subaru!

    Report back after a year of ownership. Seriously, my STi didn't rattle much at first.

    That's why they put a volume switch on the audio.

    The volume is totally weak, by the way. Of course you splurged on the fancy pantsy HK system.

    That is totally true to form for Subaru.

    I am somewhat hopeful for the HK system.
