I would be truly disappointed if we dont get the sti seats. That(the interrior) along with the semi-closed block, larger turbo/intercooler, 6 speed gearbox, brembo brakes, 17" alloys, projector headlights, and larger hood scoop is what makes an sti an STI!
but I wouldnt be too worried, given that its going to be such a limited amount of sti, and that the people(me :wink: ) who are buying them know exactly what they getting and safety is not one of the the main reason why they are buying the sti.
my guess is that if mitstubishi brings the Evo with its recaros, the subaru will bring the Sti with its seats. Just wondering, do the Evo's recaros come with side air bags? If so, I would be a little concerned, :-? but not too much.
