    Most people don't like either the '06-'07 STi's including myself. If I were to get a STi I'd look for a low mile '05 sti mainly because of looks. Also the
    '05's are more proven then the '06-'07's .

    If they themselves do not know why it's unlikely anyone here will.

    Have you looked into the 08s (any WRX version) yet? You may find you like them more anyway. One feature is the 5-door body style.

    The only downfall of the 07 is the crappy ECU. If you get that fixed then IMHO it's leaps and bounds better then the 06. You can trap higher, the gears are friendly around town, the heads are better, odds are it will have less miles/abuse.

    it does not have a crappy ecu ! . The problem is the ecu is the most advance ecu subaru created to date . THE problem is the factory base map sucks , . just get a cobb accesport and flash. I love the gear ratio on my 07 easy on highway and great 1/4 mile runs

    I'm glad I finally found a thread like this, I traded a 06 "regular" WRX for a 07 STI and never could get a good answer on what/ if any differences there are between 06 and 07 STI's. I haven't run my car at the track yet, and have done a few mods so I am curious as what people are running. I know no one with a 07 that has brought there's to a track. Also I have had "quirks" with the ECU but I was told was flashed before it left the factory. Mods amplify these effects...I guess.

    if you mod your car you need engine management subarus are sensitive to mods

    I should have gave more detail. I don't have big mods by any means, but I have SPT intake,heatshield/turbo heatshield,mid-pipe, SPT catback. SPT shift kit, royal purple tranny and diff fluid. Cobb/TBE coming in spring along with eibach springs(possibly sways?) then I think I'm done. Thinking it should pretty quick when done.

    when you putt the TBE exhaust on make sure it has a highflow cat 06-07 need at least one cat for backpressure in the exhaust. also at that point make sure you get a tune or engine management like the cobb AP

    Yeah...okay...sure.


    The ECU logic sucks...not the ecu...poor choice in wording.
