    Good possibility and i agree. Maybe they are tired of making 2 cars that compete with each other for sales and that's why these cars are getting closer and closer as far as performance is concerned . It would be nice to see them put all the time and effort into making just one car that performs really well.

    If they made the STi trans and diff an option in the WRX and made the STi suspension setup a standard feature then they could focus on building one car, which would save money in a few different ways. Currently the only reason to buy an STi this year is for the bulletproof driveline and its outstanding trackability (if that makes sense), which most buyers will never need (just my opinion). Having that Diff or Trans as an option on the WRX would kill the STi sales so it just makes sense to focus on one platform.

    It could very well end up becoming how US automakers run things at times. Have 1 car and a short list of driveline choices and maybe a sport tuned suspension option (and a wingless option hopefully lol). Saves on money on marketing that's for sure.

    Exactly!

    The only reason I bought the STi is for the LSDs. I prefer the hydraulic steering in the STi but the steering in the WRX is really good for an EPAS system. I'd rather have the FA20 motor, though the EJ257 isn't terrible.

    This is the main reason I wanted the limited...factory HID's are just too expensive to replicate. The heated leather seats and moonroof were just a bonus! Either way...same car.

    I hate this electrical steering crap. Sure it feels nice, yet i cant really feel the road like i used to. Give and take i guess. By the time my kid is 18 i wont recognize the crap thats on the road most likely.

    I thought the limited used LED not HID. I thought it looked cool too, yet it gets too hot in Tx to have a black leather interior. Maybe if i could get a cream color like my wifes car then it wouldn't be too bad. Hers still gets hot enough in the summer that it makes my wife hate wearing a skirt lol
