    I think its funny how changing the AC required removal of the in dash cupholder which required another cup holder in the center console which required moving the e-brake over hehe. The 05 is definitely a better choice! Leave those 04s on the market for me hehe

    I'm thinking about getting an 04 STi.....but after reading that it makes me feel like the 05 might be a better choice. Is the 05 worth the extra money?

    I think it depends on how you plan on using the car. If you will be tracking it, inho, the 04 diffs are stronger and cheaper to replace if they do fail. The additional track width of the 05 is a definite benefit (they pushed the tires out further). Other than that, it really comes down to estetics. Good luck in your choice.
