    I just wonder how the after market is going to be able to cope with the limited amount of space there is as a resut of the new flow pattern

    Dont get the Sport Grill. The chrome is a very nice touch especially on a dark colored car.

    Is yours Dark Gray Metallic?

    Welcome to the forums! The hatches are growing on me, though I still do not like the new sedans. I have yet to see a WRX hatch in person, but when I stopped by the dealer a few weeks ago, I liked an OBS hatch better than a WRX sedan.

    As for the tails, the center chrome needs deleted, and the lights tinted/smoked. My opinions, obviously, but that's the first things, I'd do..

    I actually test drove a sedan, went to buy a sedan, and drove home a hatch. Once you compare the back of the sedan to the back of the hatch many of you will pick the hatch. Of course color makes a HUGE difference. I really liked the silver sedan but did not like the red sedan (looked too much like a saturn). I did not like the silver hatch but like the dark grey hatch. I also did not like the hatch without the premium package in any color except for white. You just have to actually see each car in person. The pictures always make them look somewhat distorted. They make the sides look flat and the bodies look long. In real life the sides are thicker and contoured and the body does not seem so long (the hatch is actually shorter than my 06 wagon but has a longer wheelbase) I won't know about the sprots grille until it gets put on friday.

    Can you guys post a pic of the hood from the inside the car. I love the huge scoop my 04 STi has and was dissapointed to hear the 06 was getting a smaller one. My wifes Celica GT-S you cant even see her hoodscoop from inside. Thanks

    I took a picture but it wasn't worth posting. You are not goint to see it from the drivers seat, just a small bump. The reason is in the design. The scoop is more integrated into the hood and more towards the front where the hood slopes down.
