    the scoop looks a lot like the LGT scoops do as far as how it fits into the hood.
    It still looks like <--- that stuff

    I love how they say that the new engine isnt going to produce better numbers than before. How naive the magazines are.

    I cant wait to see Stage 2 08's putting down 300 lb-ft to the wheels.

    i agree with all those saying this version of the rex doesnt look tough enough. i think they made it look like grandma's grocery getter. it looks like a g6 and a camery mated on late night with conan o'brian. i do like the interior tho that looks sweet but the car as a whole looks tame. i can deal with the back end even tho it looks like a g6 rip off, and the front end can always be replaced with a nice body kit i suppose once those are released but as it sits stock i dont like it. right now if i were to trade in my bugeye the newest subie i would get is a 07. just my 2 cents.

    The only good part about new WRXs is the 2.5 litre engine. The new body style is disappointing. It doesn't look BAD but the above poster said it right. It's tame, lacks any sort of edginess. It's turned into a consumer car. Which is fine for the IMPREZA but it leaves us WRX fans in the lurch...

    yup, looks good to me with the lip... even better with the "spec v" splitter and lip. looks like you're upgrading again as soon as the STI comes out.

    Based on everything I'm reading (and some inside info....just a little bit)...I'll either be waiting for the 2008 Legacy turbo diesel or the 2009 STi.

    The white sure shows off the lines better though doesn't it? Still my favorite subaru color.

    i wouldnt think the 2009 STI will be much different. It seems they are sticking with a style for 2 years so that would put them to change it for 2010 model year.

    i saw a 2008 STI picture in a mag over the weekend..i think automobile. it was in an article called "20 cars to worth waiting for" or something of that nature. the STI was one of them and they had a great picture of it. i liked it.

    Granny's grocery getter doesn't attract attention, so thats fine by me.


    If i were to trade up to the 08 i'd def. go with hatch. I saw the pics with the SPT front grill and it looks sooo much better then the crome nonsense.

    you know what....i like the new styling of the wrx and not ashamed to admit it.

    man stop encouraging Subaru to style weak cars.

    You did use a wiggles tho, which made me laugh, cause i like teh wiggles.

    It's not that i don't LIKE how it looks. It just looks like they took the cars out there now and cut/pasted different parts of them. It doesn't stand out one bit. Which is fine for some people... but i like how people go "your car looks tough" and "i like your subaru" cause they can tell what it is and it does look tough.

    I just think it lost its toughness. And if the STI has the inverted hoodscoop I'll cry.

    WRX and STI Info from a Subaru SPT rep:

    1st he was driving the 08 WRX.

    • 08 WRX Turbo = Mitsubishi, not IHI. It is *NOT* the TD04 as you can see from its upward connection to the intercooler ala the LGT. It is not a VF40 or VF46 from the LGT it is a brand new turbo.
    • 08 WRX will "smoke an LGT"
    • 08 WRX is "very underrated"
    • 08 WRX wheel wells designed for "205 tires"
    • New STi "will have 245 18's, so imagine what kind of fenders it would need."
    • New STI "will come in Black, Blue, Silver, Gray, White and Red"
    • New STI "will be quad tipped (dual exhaust w/ each muffler having 2 tips), more aggresive bumper, the grill will have the badge and wings but the chrome will be color matched, lower suspension, larger rear wing and large fenders in the rear like the Clio V6"
