    Yeah, I'm not quite sure what you're referring to. There are a few subtle changes and the interior is quite different in a few spots (for the better, IMO).

    Maybe its the color I don't know, but it doesnt look nearly as nice as this. Looks different to me for some reason.

    i think its just the angle of the pic... in the blue one you can easily see the rear fender flares, where as in the silver one, they look non-existant.

    i think thats just a REALLY bad picture. it almost looks like a riced out galant or something.... eh, just one more reason why i like the evo better than the STI.

    although, with a good angle, lower/more agressive front end stance and more agressive wheels than those the STi looks HOT!

    The exterior stayed the same except for the JDM headlights.

    The interior changes include different A/C and heat control knobs and a different radio face.

    And i believe it got a new front LSD

    It does look the same as the 04?

    About the parents econo sedan - riced out.

    He needs to check out the EVO rs with no wing. Without the rear wing on the EVO it looks like a cheap rental car. Hey, thats what it looks like to me. Its an absolute miracle that that car handles like it does. I would never guess that by looking at it.

    I actually like the way the EVO looks with the rear wing. But take that wing off and I think the car looks like crap.

    Get the June 2004 Sport Compact Car Mag and turn to page
    56-57 and check out the picture. They have 8 killer looking EVO's and one in the back ground that looks like a rental car. Its worth checking out for anyone who hasn't picked up the mag. There's 8 different tuned EVOs and the EVO rs. One of the EVO's is modded by Vishnu - of course. Pretty good read.

    I like the new charcoal silver or whatever it is...looks awesome. And the new AC controls are a hell of a lot better looking than my '04.

    That color reminds me of the guy on NASIOC who painted his car that wierd Ferarri silver, goes from light silver to almost black looking. Pretty hot.

    It looks like the top of the wing is black or carbon. Is this my imagination or just a bad pic? ...

    The STi and EVO both have ricer wings. The EVO has ricer tail lights.

    I really like the STi's with 2004 foglights and wrx spoiler.

    The EVO needs EVO 7 tailights. EVO's look good with a lower profile wing, and evo 7 tailights. They still look like giant ants to me though.

    Man, I was strongly considering an Evo until Mitsu went under.
