My 2015 had keyless entry and push button start. Really the only difference for this year is the passenger auto up-down window. Semi-lame list, if you ask me. But good for the guys who bought 2016s. Don't feel as bad as us 2015 owners did when the 2016 list came out........

I test drive a STI limited today and they are nice. I missed my 08 very badly. If Ford does not make my RS in May then I am canceling and finding myself another STI.

The new tech is very nice and the whole package improved regardless of the now dated EJ257....

Or a Crosstrek with a 250 HP+ turbo motor, and lower, stiffer, long travel suspension, similar to the not quite a WRX, Impreza GT's offered for a while. The moon roof on the Impreza Crosstrek is a bit short too.

I still miss my BugEye WRX Wagon
