    The bean counters at GM (own 40% of Subaru) probly saved $3 that way.

    Supposedly I've heard that the MOMO is still there, it's just lower down on the steering wheel and not nearly as noticable.

    Correct. Center the steering wheel on an 05 and look on the vertical spoke. It's engraved in the wheel towards the bottom of the spoke. Really subtle...

    You are correct sir! The momo is still there; it's embossed at the base of the steering wheel. There is now a Subaru logo in place of the momo logo in the center.

    Although it is still a momo wheel, I don't like the new design. IMHO, the momo tag makes the car feel sportier.

    I thought it was the carbon fiber interior that added 5hp. No wait, that was 10hp with the CF trim and 5 with the momo. Now I got it straight!!
