    Who's Clayton?

    No, you're probably right. The Enkei's in previous WRX STis were around 24 lbs, while the standard WRX wheels were around 21 lbs. I don't think anyone has measured the new wheels.

    I got a white CVT yesterday. Went auto because sig others don't do manual. Got hosed on the price, but I really wanted it. It is fantastic. If you have any doubts about how the CVT feels, its is not VW DSG good, but feels almost identical to the dual clutch in the Mercedes CLA. As I was told, it is better to get an auto WRX than no WRX at all.

    Unlikely.. Apple has a very structured release plan for CarPlay, due in part to its agreements with the auto manufactures. CarPlay will be available this year only on a very select number of 2015 models. I would expect much higher availability in the 2016 models, likely including Subaru. Due again to the agreements with the auto manufactures, I doubt there will be any aftermarket options till 2016 at the earliest.
    Pioneer systems like the new The AVIC-8000NEX will be firmware upgraded to carplay. Pioneer says CarPlay firmware update for existing 2014 in-dash systems coming this summer | 9to5Mac

    As a side note; I am 5'7 and 150 lbs. I wear 32 waist pants. I found the seats to very loose, in had anticipated the bolsters to be grippier.

    Only if you wanted a WRX and for whatever reason the 6MT didn't work for you. There are a bunch of cars I would have taken before an automatic WRX.

    I sat in a new WRX yesterday and thought the same thing. I'm 5'10 and about 180lbs. I thought the side bolsters were barely an improvement on the previous generation. The seat part seemed exactly the same. I like the new steering wheel and the cabin now looks a little more modern but they're still using cheap plastics. Oh well, what can you expect for the price? But I'm not even going to comment on the exterior.
