    I don't find the current gen's seat to be very comfortable. From the pics, the '15's seats look completely different from the earlier car. Any input will be appreciated. Thanks. (I haven't read through all 62 pages but did do a search.)
    Nice double post, from what I have been told by those who have sat in the 15, it is lightyears ahead of the GR's cabin. The seats are in fact more comfortable.

    Did something change on the '09-'14 seats from the '08 seats? I had an '08 and they were fantastic. The wife and I drove a couple 1,000 mile+ roads trips, plus my daily driving...never had a single ache and support was perfect. At least for us. I'd be curious as to how all these compare. I'm about 5'11" - 175 (except on holidays)

    This isn't a comment on the current gen's seats. Rather, it's a comment on my my sensitive back. About half the cars I test drive aren't a good fit for me.

    I'm curious to see if the 15 sti will handle as well as the 15 wrx. I know they are going to beef up the suspension of the sti and what not but I thought one of the main reasons they said the new wrx handles better than the brz/fr-s is because it also has a lower mounted engine? does the new FA engine w/ turbo on bottom have lower center of gravity than the EJ in the new sti? If so maybe with a few suspension upgrades you could out handle the sti?

    Subaru has managed to move back the FA20 approx 6 inches into the body thanks to the low-mounted turbo. This should give the WRX much more natural and neutral handling. Keep in mind the STi still uses an active center differential and a true LSD front which should kill understeer just the same. I'd expect handling on dry pavement to be very similar.

    Wow, didn't know that the FA20 was that much farther back. That's certainly a step in the right direction for the car.

    2015 pricing found?

    To save a click:
    Base WRX - $26,295
    Base STI - $34,495

    What are everyone's thoughts on this? I'm pretty happy to see the WRX is only $300 more than the outgoing model. However, I really don't see the justification for spending $8,200 more on the STI at this point. Maybe if it wasn't using the same drive train as the current model. To me there just doesn't seem to be $8,200 more value in the STI right now.

    Since I'm cross-shopping certain cars, it looks like it's about the same difference between a VW GTI / Golf R and a WRX / STI. The difference being AWD std on the WRX and not available on a GTI.
    That being said, I think the WRX pricing is VERY fair. I'd have to wait for the full reviews of the new STI to come out before judging the difference to be too much. From what I've read on cars like the new Golf R, the price difference for that model is justified. Those are the cars I'm interested in thus my examples. *commencing defensive stance*

    For a daily driver, no. Keep in mind, that the STi's weapon is still the drivetrain. If you want to build a track car, the proper diffs on the STi are going to make all the difference. To install the diffs in a WRX, you'd still be paying more than $8200.

    For the rest of us, the WRX will be more than enough car for the street. The brake vectoring is excellent and we will never see the point when brake-fade will affect the brake-vectoring capability. It's really quite a shame the STi did not follow suit with the FA20, but I suppose time will tell.

    Agreed. Although since I would probably get the WRX Limited this time around, the price difference is more like $4,000. That's still fairly significant.
