@brrrz, what's your thoughts on the FA20DIT so far? From what I've heard, this is amongst the best engines tbat subaru has ever offered and quite a step ahead in terms of tech as opposed to the EJ257. AkA no more spun rods and timing chains ftw?

Putting my flame suit on for this one...If I wasn't to go hatch I would take a 15 WRX over a 14 STi for a DD....I 'might' even get said WRX in the linear-tronic CVT. People can comment on that all they want but until you actually drive one and compare back to back you will never understand. The new FA20DIT actually rips. Second gear in the manual pulls really strong and the CVT will hold the revs at full boost and doesn't shift so there is no lag its just nonstop torque. Driving around town the suspension is softer compared to a STi and is a little easier to live with if this is a daily. CVT being linear-tronic has simulated shift points so it feels more natural in normal driving. I really wish they would have just put the FA20DIT in the BRZ

Motor trend has the '15 STi and WRX at 0.8sec difference in the 1/4 mile

I have a 15 WRX and coming from an 04 TL, this thing is so much more fun to drive.

Doesn't take 40 years to get to 60km/h, lol.

The power as soon as the boost kicks in puts a smile on my face every time I drive. And it's always fun hearing the turbo spooling. Hnnngg.

I only got the base package because to me the sunroof was the only thing I'd be missing out on.

I am jealous that the 2016's get touchscreens as a standard feature though
