    Any hard starts out there?

    Hey so I'm just curious for any new 2015 owners... Any problems starting the car? My ex had a 2014 FXT, and sometimes it wouldn't start on the first try . There were others on the Forester forums with the same issue, I'm assuming they corrected the issue on the FA20 by now.

The EJ motor isn't my favorite approach, but it is reliable at stock power levels and I know my way around the motor. Would I prefer an FA20? Yes. However, stock-for-stock the STi has more horsepower and improved handling. Since I don't plan to modify the car, the STi was the better buy for me.

    None here, but only 350 miles completed. Some of the FXT owners were saying this happens just a few times per year and it still starts, so I am not really concerned even if it does happen.

    I'm actually contemplating the same decision as yours. I have a limited WRX on order but am considering stepping up to the STI base model as it is around 2k more. I really want the steering and responsiveness of the STI, but am not sure if I want to deal with the EJ. Has anyone on this forum driven both? I'm curious about the different in feeling between the two.

    I guess I'm just not used to worthless passive aggressive jokes, comments about "fapping" and name calling. I don't really see myself becoming a part of the "family". You seem cool though. Nice car, man. Peace!

    No worries. Welcome and enjoy the forum.

    In other more awesome news. Saw the 2015 in person finally. It's great looking, IMO. Pictures do not do it justice.

    So sensitive dude. My bad, didn't mean to hurt your feelings. I'm sure everyone appreciates the photos and video, but if you're fishing for compliments I've got nothing for you.
