    Haha. Yeah, the front end is growing on me. I still love the fender flares and sedan look, and am going to miss both..

    I don't think its gonna be as bad as everyone thinks. If its lighter, and still has the 257, I'll be a bit jealous. Just not in the looks department. But they lose the city-lights in exchange for 21/8 watt turn signals/side markers! That's a bit disappointing! Its all in the details for me. And I thought they learned that the square intercooler wasn't as efficient as the wider one like the 06/07? It really is a quite massive hood scoop tho, damn. Either that or the car is absolutely tiny. :naughty:

    interior is MINT. and the darker grill makes the front end more tolerable.

    i'm getting sick of people saying

    "well remember when the first pics of the 06 came out, you all hated it at first but now you love it.. i'm guessing that everyone will love it over time"

    this is complete bs. the body change from 05-06 was NO WHERE near the body change of this.

    <--- x's his fingers that the STi is on one sick ass platform

    yeah but the rally car always looks good. Every new WRX car I think looks better than the last one. I think the 07 one is the best one yet.

    I read the Motor Trend article at Barnes and Nobel. The whole thing was about how it was good that Subaru was "mainstreaming" the car. I thought the car was mainstream.

    Hello Subaru dealer guys.

    I would like to take a look at one of these when they come in for possible upgrading of the 04 wagon. Specifically for when the Sti comes out, but I'd like to see one these guys up close and personal so that I could have an idea in my mind for what I want.

    Thanks

    I just got the email from Subaru announcing the 08' WRX. When I saw the picture in the email, I thought it was a joke. FUGLY ! I am so dissappointed.

    I think the coupe looks unproportioned and oblong (or something). Especially without the fender flares.

    I don't know why everyone sweats it so much.

    Looks like from the pics there are going back to the standard 2pot brake. On the side note they are now equipped with the VDC & optional Navi...give and take I guess...

    Holy Buckets, Nice job Editing this 08'. Its almost like I want to see one of these things on the road !!!
    I liked the bug eyed cars and the peanut ones. they were kinda sexy! I like the old flat headlight models from the 90's they were pretty sweet lookin too.
    Thats just my opinion.

    I think if the tail lights had the smoked look to it, it wouldn't be too bad. I actually am starting to grow on it after seeing those pictures.

    still think the 08s look ugly. seems like all the cars are starting to look more and more alike.... even the ones that were really unique, like celicas, wrx, evos.... even though the EVO X does look pretty nice.
