Other than media comparisons I'm curious what 2015 STi (not WRX) owners feel about the upgrade even though the motor is the same.

For the future if Subaru just were to throw in the 2.0 as is (same horsepower as new WRX) into the STi would you buy it? Personally I would as it seems everyone likes the new motor. I mean Subaru could leave it up to owners who want more than 268 horsepower (for the road this is plenty). With the STi you still get things that the WRX doesn't have like the diff control and all. Subaru could lower the cost difference a bit and not have to invest alot of R&D this way. Of course people would see this as a downgrade motor wise as it would be, but they wouldn't have to maintain 2.5 motor.
