i was actually going to end up with a black 2007 Wrx wagon even though i really wanted an STI, but the wagon was more user friendly for me. now that the STI will give me the little extra room i wanted, I am in on the new STI. especially being a lighter and more powerful vehicle than before.
most people that buy Subaru's dont buy because of looks. they are buying reliability, comfort, etc.
WRX/STI owners buy the great driving experience...i just actually happen to love the bugeye look so it worked out good.
