    I still can't believe they wen't to a 2.5 and I haven't heard a peep about it in any of the major car rags. I guess I'll have to check them out at the dealer next time I go.

    I like the headlights, air dam, and painted brakes. Still mixed on the 3 piece grill, but it's not as hideous as the Tribecca with Chrysler wings. Don't like them going back to blingy/tacky silver wheels, but I like single spoke better than double (easier to clean and hopefully stronger). Of course wheels are easily replaceable. Looks like the tail lights may be swappable with '04/05s if you don't like Altezza ricyness. Also noticed they moved the WRX badge from rear left to right.

    AVCS now on the WRX as well as STi??

    Is the STi scoop still bigger than the WRX's? Maybe it's because it's so far away, but the '06 STi scoop appears smaller than yours.

    What's the sticker on them now?

    Big Sky, I thought they went to aluminum rear lateral links on the '05s. I guess I have to do the magnet test on mine.

    front links to aluminum in 05 (Saab 92X as well).

    Yes the 06 STi scoop is now smaller- the 04/05 were a tad large IMO

    AVCS on both, the WRX loses the catted upipe- good, but replace w/ a "air pump"- good or bad don't know??

    Those aren't just painted calipers they are the FHi four pots/two pots- substantial upgrade form the 02+'s.

    Big Sky: The rearmost lateral links are steel.

    Also, for those interested, I'll measure the hood scoops back to back (wagon vs STI) at work on Tuesday for an exact difference.

    I've read the reasoning behind this change is that the aerodynamics have been improved so much by the new front end that the taller scoop is no longer necessary to reach up into the air stream.

    Thank you sir- not what I was hoping for for, but good to know.

    I've actually got a way to still get aluminum lateral links front (already have) and rear
