you prefer the look of the new one over the 04/05?? i hate the new front end. although had i afforded a new one i'm sure it would have grown on me.

I love you how can change the Center diff. I thought that was cool. My choice wasn't so much on styling as function.

04-05 STi's are definately wayy better looking than 06..and from what I hear there getting uglier..the 07 is said to have a front end that looks like it came off a b9 tribeca..LOL. And are you sure the 04 and 05 dont have the same DCCD, because I think they do :)
