    Hi, I am vlenhoff, I'm a New Subaru Addict...

    Yeah! I got a 2008 WRX. Please, excuse me, I like the old ones, but I drove the 06' and the 08' the same day. I could not get over the handling of the second one. Turbo lag was noticeable on the 06, where in the 08' was less of a wait. I know, It does have some roll, but is not really that bad, because the car responds nicely every time. Bottom line, I love this thing. I'll post pictures of my photoshoot early next week. In the meantime please enjoy my phone pictures.

    I know! I installed the grille myself, and it was really easy to unscrewed the emblem. Then I could not put it back on, since I liked it so much without it. It looks like twin vents behind the grille. Everyone looks at it more than once. I guess they don't know what the hell is this thing I'm driving. It's funny... Man this thing is fast, and swallows gas like an alcoholic drinks on Friday night.

    The little Japanese guys trying to race you are pretty funny. They don't stand a chance! This thing is fun! So many cops out there... Grrrrr!

    Congrats, greetings and welcome to the club!

    Did you have the chrome accented grill? Subaru has a sport grill that is easier on the eyes - imo.
