well the new grill doesn't look quite as bad on this Scooby Doo as it does on that hideous new SUV of theirs.

But it still doesn't look as good as the old Impreza in my view.
Although apparently the first reviews I've read say its a big improvement to drive (if that was possible on the current model)

The front is ok--but I prefer the current iteration the most--its still avery unattractive car--but the performance is outstanding, with that said I still wouldn't buy one--too ugly.

It looks better than recent Subaru's. I still don't like it that much (a little too garish), but it's definitely an improvement. They are so good to drive and so quick that it doesn't matter, i'd take it's looks over some small 2 seater roadsters.

I don't like it because it is pretty.. Someday, when you grow up CORULEZ you may be able to look past the surface. The car is all wheel drive. It has a 4cylinder boxer engine, for a low center of gravity.. It has a decent sized turbo charger for power.. It will outhandle most cars on the road and outrun a lot of them...

That being the STI version, I believe it will do all that and more for a hair over $30,000

If you learn to look past the surface you may become less of a shallow asshole. That might make some of your other problems work themselves out.

Looking past the surface with people is a good thing, but I could care less how manuverable or fast it is if it is going to look like that. Take the fake hood scoop and tacky add on wing off and maybe it wouldn't be an embarrassment. As it sits in those pictures....yuck!!!  vomit

People should give them a go... you might be pleasantly surprised with how they perform... I don't think I would ever go with another car manufacturer unless I was going for a luxury vehicle (in which case it would probably be a Merc or Audi). The WRX series (and the Impreza's alike) are really well engineered cars, and I can think of many things that are a lot more ugly than that! (i.e. Mitsubishi Lancers, A380's etc.)

The front of the Subaru is a ripoff of the grille style of SEAT.

It looks like last year's Ibiza.

Expect lawsuits. And those chav wheels are just tacky. The secondhand Subaru is usually the preferred chariot of a chav that's done a robbery or Asian teenagers. Nobody in Britain with the slightest street cred would be caught driving one.

Now a Chrysler Crossfire or my beloved Monaro...that's different! Not that I could afford to buy/run/insure either...  Sad

i like all but the new front end...i thought the redesigned hood scoop really brought it out in a pack, but i've never been big on large spoilers...i can handle a small one, but not a full size rally style wing...i've driven both the STi and the Evo8, i prefer the evolution myself, but that doesn't mean i would turn down the WRX

why is it everybody seems to have a problem with kids that put exhaust pipes on their car? i understand the ridiculous walmart brand muffler sticking 6 inches out the back of a metro, but i don't see what's wrong with an actual exhaust on a civic...i'm sure the majority of the people here wouldn't be able to tell the difference between a muffler and a full exhaust, but who cares?

when will people understand that just because you have a four cylinder vehicle, it doesn't mean it isn't capable of creating large numbers on a dyno...too many people still out there insisting on showing off their big bad V8's if you ask me...it's much more of a challenge to create that power in a small displacement FWD vehicle than it is a camaro with a freakin 6.6 liter! please don't start ranting about me hating domestics, if it's a car or bike and it goes fast, i like it!

The wing is probably optional... Honestly, unless you are going over 100mph frequently it is just drag and dead weight, and added cost.. I would delete the thing if it were my car.

I have sat in an EVO and a WRX... the Evo felt cheap to me.

But you could always buy a much better looking RX-8, even though the performance is definately down when compared to the just a little more expensive STi. But I hear the RX-8 drives better, although it has less power. When even Consumer Reports mentions that, you know it's serious.

It's possible. But with-

75mm MAF
Catback exhaust
Stage 2 Cams

I might stand a fair chance against an STi. He may win, but damn, will I scare him when he rolls over 100 mph and I'm still within a car length or two.  bigthumbsup
