Default first drives of 2011 Sti

Ton of these out today, must have been a press weekend. Interesting bits regarding steering and suspension improvements (even beyond those offered in SE). Hope these aren't re-posts...enjoy the read:

I wonder if these pillow ball bushings that made such a big difference are simple swap-ins for 08-10 models?

I was thinking the same thing. Is there anything similar/better available from the aftermarket?

I am hard pressed to find anything wrong with the looks of the new sedan. I really like it. Good job finally getting the suspension correct. I don't know that I will stay with an STI though for 2011. I'm still too worried about tuning and having piston #4 problems.

When I hit 60k... I am going to have a very difficult decision to make.
