I see a new popular mod fad comming on the 2018's with that idea in mind!!!
I think those holes are for "optional fog light" package but if they are actually passing air through those holes to the 6-pot Brembos then that would be real good on Subaru. The STI could really use brake air ducts as the fronts get real hot on the track.

Good platform. Recaros were due. First impressions of the look, meh. After owning 3 STi in different gens, not going for a forth, lets see in 2020; hopefully FA dit will be ready then. Oh and btw, thank ford and other competitors for these upgrades; it was just to match and compete.

Does anyone know when we can order these??
My local dealer says they don't expect to see them until the year 2018..

But every car source says availability is spring of 2018? wtf.

I know not everyone can afford to wait BUT if you can, I would wait for the new model after this one.

It will be a complete redesign and god willing, a new power plant.

Based on the competition, that new STI should have a boost in power as well - we would hope.

but if you cant wait, then this model it shall be I guess.

I can't comment on ordering date or dealer arrival dates since not sure myself. Maybe try hitting up that dealer that has a thread here. tons of subie sales. I forget the name.

New model WRXs and STIs (not counting the 2015 model year) usually hit in the late summer, so I would think either late July or sometime August.
