    So went to the dealrship...and took pics of an 08 WRX next to 07 STI

    Overall the Sedan doesn't look that bad IMHO. It looks rather nice inside with the exception that they carried over the hideous WRX leather baseball mit shift knob.

    This one had the sport grille and a "Functional Hood Scoop" was listed on the window sticker under exterior features/ad ons.

    Only 1 problem.........The STI was $34000 and the 08 WRX was $31000.

    The hatch in its current form is rather repulsive to me and I am a HUUUUGE hatch back fan. Can't wait for the 09 STI cause their is no way they could screw up that hatch any worse. Its got to be an improvement.

    the sport grille really does it for me. we have a red hatchback with the grille and i fell in love with it.

    From the front I don't think the '08 looks that bad, OK even. Although the '07 is still nicer. However, the '08 is AWFUL from the rear. It looks like just another midsize import sedan.

    My biggest problem with the 08's is it's just so blah looking. The 5 door doesnt look awful and I'm sure they'd sell more 5 doors then 4 doors.

    The price is rather silly once you start to factor in the nav (which only comes in an auto if I recall) so that's a good 2,500-3k on top of a mid 25 price range before you get into any "options".

    I'm still waiting for the first company to come out with dual fart cans for this thing.

    All this time I thought they couldn't possibly go worse than the vag-eye.


    I stand corrected

    That 08 was a stick and had the "NAV SCREEN" but not sure if it had NAV.

    is it jsut the angle of the last pic, or is the 08 that much 'larger' than the 07?
    It looks to be a little larger, but they rear leg room in both models is still very lacking.

    I want an '09 STi. Aside from the taillights, the new hatch is real smooth.

    $31,000 for an 08 Impreza is a tough sell IMO. I'd not pay that, even though I like hatches.
