    The 07 STI gets a center armrest in the rear with pass through ability.

    A new reprogrammed ECU

    Different heads for better flowing

    No longer has sodium filled valves (due to better cooling heads)

    Gets different gear ratios in the tranny for better driveabitly

    Has an aux jack spot for a ipod/mp3 player

    Subaru has limted what colors get gold wheels and which ones get silver

    The front control arms on the 07 have been redesigned and offer less camber



    Those are all the ones I can think off the top of my head. Nasioc has a HUGE list in several threads if you want to search over there.

    The 07's are making HUGE power with a TBE and tune.
    0-60 faster then your first sexual experience.

    Also, the 07 STI has a VF43 turbo compared to the 06's and lower's VF39.

    Just with stage 2 and a tune, TopSpeed cranked out 319 whp, 389 lb-ft on pump gas.

    The wrx differences are Aux jack for radio and steel control arms.

    The nasioc posts on this topic said the turbo was a VF43- which is a vf39 with a different wastegate? Is that correct?
