minor differences, like the wiper fluid resevior is on the other side, the 06 has a battery brace, instead of a battery cover...

also the suspension has changed since 2005. I believe eibach has released a lowering kit for the 2006, but nothing so far that is close to a 2" drop.

The sportlines for the 06 is available for the 06 now, talk to Wayne in the hypnoyic illusions forum for a price I am buying the prokit my self soon.

Most everything else is the same.

Power steering reservoir moved and makes for very noisy steering and splashing the fluid everywhere.

I'm happy with my 06 stock. I just spent all weekend at the track and it will consistently run 16.0s hot lapping or dipping into the 15s if you leave it time to cool off.

On a side note of some experimenting I did while at the track; the "stealth CAI" differences are also stealth. All it did was mess up my idle because of the loss of induction piping to straighten up the air before it gets metered (I guess).

Actually, just the proline springs from Eibach now. I just called Eibach the other day and talked to a guy named Jeff and the Sportlines ar coming in Mid-June. Dampers will be available early fall.
