Wing does look odd in this one
I think Subaru are planning to use the FA20 for the STI in Japan, but have said they cannot bring it here because of the lower octane gas. There is no indication they will work on an FA25. I believe they are working on DI for the FB series, so maybe there is an FB25DIT in 2 to 4 years?
Has there been any pictures of the non-led headlights on the base model WRX? I am curious to see if the headlight assembly looks the same or if it looks like the regular Impreza. Is it just the light source that is different?
Anyone placed an order yet? I'm still negotiating pricing with my dealer.

Posted this on FB but, I'll put it here too.
I'd like to see a side by side comparison of the two cars. Same course, same driver, same checkpoints. I believe the STI would still "win" in a race but, I doubt the gap would be that large.
This is my first post, so I'll try not to be all wordy. This is a great forum and a testament to the WRX community. I'm seriously considering the 2015 WRX (not the STI) and wonder if any speculation about certain capabilities and features have been answered.
1. Is this WRX quicker (note I didn't say faster) than the outgoing model. I realize that the 0-60 times enthusiasts have been reporting are about 8/10 of a second slower, but they all seem so think it's because you have to shift to third gear to get to 60. The maximum torque seems to be available at 2000RPM in the 2.0L vs 4000RPM in the outgoing model. Does that mean that this car gets to 50mph faster?
2. Does anyone know if the smart key/push button start is an option or something available at certain trim levels? Wonder if you have to have the CVT (ugh)?
I have a million more questions, but these are all for now.
Answering those two questions one way or another may lead me to the 2014 hatch (love it) as I believe the main complaint of the 2014 is body roll which could be easily rectified with sway bars or whatever.
2. Push button is available on Premium and Limited models in 6MT or CVT
I'm gonna go drive one as soon as I see one close. I am really curious on how the power delivery feels compared to my 2.5 WRX.
I guess I could've gotten all of that information from the c/d review of the wrx. Poor form on my part for not doing enough research. Interesting that subaru is citing such poor performance numbers.
