That was a bit of a surprise release. Subtle but nice styling changes.

Can't wait to see if rotor upgrades for current owners becomes a thing.

The only thing I dont like is 19's, it looks like there there still 245 width but fitting aftermarket 18's for clearing the brakes is gonna be different. The recaros look comfy. Can't wait!

Same for me, 19s are the only "upgrades" that I don't like.

6 piston calipers and recaros are pretty sweet... should have used gold paint for the brakes though

That is SWEET!! Recaro's WOOT WOOT!! And Bigger brake rotors and Pads all around? That's AWESOME. THey will keep selling like crazy with these changes. All the people that wanted recaros's?? There ya go!!! I think the bigger brakes is a fantastic move. The thing already stops like a boss I can't imagine the force with better calipers and larger rotors and pads all around. Now people who mod the engines for big horsepower dont need to worry about upgrading the brakes!!

Keep selling like crazy? Last month, they sold 2900, but that's WRX and STi's combined so the overwhelming majority are WRX's. "Selling like crazy" will be when they actually put a new motor in it. This is the 15th straight year of the same engine.
