I went to my local Subaru dealership today to look at the 05's and to see what the new Crystal Grey Metalic color looked like.

Anywho, the salesman said that they stiffened up the suspension this year. Has anyone heard this to be correct and if so what did they do to improve it. The sales guy didn't know. He also said they widened the tires but when I checked they are still 225/45/17 so he may be wrong a bout the suspension. Although, I can see subaru doing this to try to combat the favorable handling of the EVO.

Drove an 05 yesterday and the car does feel different. The off-center steering response is definitely quicker. The steering feel is much smoother (especially over bumps).

They changed the valving on the struts as well (and took off the red paint the district rep said). The car felt smoother and more composed over bumps.

Granted, I drove only 5 miles and definitely on the slow side but just from a driveability standpoint it feels nicer. Not hugely different but a step up.
