Is it just me or is everyone else so happy that the new Imprezas have fully framed windows? Better for safety and SO much better for reducing wind noise, NVH, etc. Has anyone here slammed the door of the previous-gen WRX with the window rolled halfway down? Sounds like garbage. There, I feel better after my mini-rant!!

I remember how loud my 98 RS was. I am glad the windows are framed.

I appreciate the framed doors for the reason mentioned already, but the frameless doors are one part I originally fell in love with WRX's back in the day. They just look more sporty IMO.

Not that I'm aware of, but the dozens of sports cars that are frameless definitely are. What's your point? :)

Still some ppl on the other site would rather have a ton of noise at highway cruising than framed windows. However, my brother w/ a 05 likes the quieter interior of the 08.
