    i would like to know this as well. i dont really like antennas espeically if theyre not automatic. but i guess making it manual is to help the weight loss? lol

    the legacy's have the antenna on the rear window. its a little square that looksl ike the heater lines

    actually i prefer not to have an automatic antenna:
    first because i dont use the radio we got a 6 in dash cd changer you never need the radio. second like mario said less weight. third you have to wait for the antenna to come up everytime to listen to the radio and the cd/tape deck. fourth they brake easily and when they do they make an annoying sound and your antenna will never work again(unless fixed which costs money).

    but i would much more preferr something like the s2000 antena i love that thing.
    PEACE

    LoL I know what you guys are talkin about. When my dad first saw those antennas, this was his exact words, "Is THAT the antenna? Hmmm, it's pretty ugly."

    For the price of this car, we should've gotten a power antenna. Normally with a power antenna, it will only go up when you are listening to the radio. It will stay down for the CDs and tapes.

    actually civics have rear glass antennas which incidentally is what we should have gotten on the car

    they're a little more directional than the pole antennas, but you don't have to worry about them ever breaking or powering them

    I actually have no problem with my antena. I never even notice it and usually leave it up all the time. But when I happen to have it down and want to listen to the radio, all i have to do it open my window a little, and stick my hand out there and pull it out as I'm drving down teh road. it's really not that hard to do. Power antana's are one of the number one "little things" that break on cars first. I think it was good judgement on subaru's part.

    does anyone know if the jdm imprezas come with a rear window antenna? in some pics and video clips i've seen it both with and without the pole antenna. if there is a rear window antenna then i think there's several good reasons to get it (rear wiper, no pole antenna, unique jdm part!). my wallet hates me...
