    Hey, thanks. I hear art dogs has nice glass too.

    I think the 08 looks like a nice car, but I keep reading that everyone dislikes the 08 WRXs and STIs because of the body. Im not sure. I just got into Subies, and the new ones look great to me. But so do the 2002 to 2007 models. I really dont see a huge difference.

    The '08 is based off the Legacy platform.

    Personally, I like the STi as a sedan, but the hatchback has its purpose as well (I wish they kept it an option to have the STi as a sedan, but we had a good 4 year run, it's the hatch's turn lol). The MS3 is quite popular for a turbo hatch, and it's actually really comfortable to ride in (I don't like the shifter, though) - my boss picked one up after he hit black ice in his bugeye and totaled it.

    lots of people who own subies or used to own them are against the new style, here is what i like about the 08 STI

    Stronger engine block, More advanced Engine Mapping, Better interior,weighs less, much more understated less of a pull me over im a punk street racer look, and my favorite the new body car is 3x stiffer this means its safer and will feel more stable at the limit.

    what is not as good as 07,
    Speed , the 08 is not quite as fast, but i think with mods they will even right out.

    Yea IMO the 08 Sedan is a real prick tease because its only for america and there is no chance of an STI version.

    Also with tahoe snow AWD is going to be the way to go, They get much more snow than Upstate even.

    Yea, we just had a huge storm totaling about 12 ft in some areas. I got about 5 ft at my house. Its supposed to snow again 2nite like another 10in. And Im driving around in a peg leg single cab pick up. It sux!

    I fell in love with the WRX once I saw my friends, and I needed an AWD vehicle. The WRX wagon reminds me of the old VW Squarebacks and I think thats why I like the WRX so much. Ive been an Aircooled VW nut for about 11 years now, been into the racing, modifying, shows, etc...

    Although the subies can never match the 1/4 mile times of modified airkewled VWs, the AWD mixed with the quickness in the WRX/STI makes it great mix of practicality and "bragging rights."

    AWD is great for the snow (it'll help you go and continue to go). We get a fair amount of snow/ice at my house, but nothing compared to some places out west (see section below). My driveway is a bear in the winter time (1000' uphill with a few 90° turns in it - including a bridge, as well). RWD vehicles shouldn't bother attempting to get up (75-90% of the time, you'll get stuck halfway up, and backing down sucks). FWD vehicles can usually do alright with dedicated snows (10-25% chance of getting stuck), and it's a crapshoot with all-seasons (50-50). I have only had the AWD for one partial winter, but with my Blizzaks, I've yet to have any issue whatsoever getting up. The 'rents have both had AWD/4WD for about 10 years now, and again, never had an issue when mated with a set of dedicated snow tires.

    Upstate NY snow is a joke compared to some other parts of the country (not to say we can't get hammered). The only place upstate that really gets hammered with snow regularly is Buffalo (I did a lot of work in Tonawanda this summer, and driving through Buffalo on the way there was quite depressing - seeing all the trees that were damaged from the massive snowfall they had last winter) and the Tug Hill.
