    05 STi or 06 STI (Any Differences)

    Hey guys/gals,

    Im fairly new to the site and Im loading myself with as much info as possible. I am in the market for a new ride... Hopefully a Subaru STI... now which one should I be gunning after... the 05 Sti or the 06 STI? Let me know if there are any differences between the two model years and if there are any reliability issues. Thanks for any help you can provide!

    Well, as im sure you already know, the 2006 was the model year for a makeover. There is a new front end, plus some other exterior bits. The engine remains the same, but there are some other minor things i dont recall off hand but i do know that somehow these things add up to make a "big difference" according to some of the mag. tests. Good luck man, cant go wrong with an STi

    if im not mistaken the 06 sti sits around a half inch lower and the DCCD is a little different for this year. but thats it besides the obvious front end changes. I was choosing between the 06 and a used sti myself. I decided yesterday after driving an 04 to get that one because of my money situation but all STIs are awesome good luck with whatever you decided
