    Eh...I would have to agree.

    BUT, I also thought that the 06-07 bodies looked fugly...and we all know how that turned out. It is change...people dont normally like it, because we are pretty primitive in nature. Status quo and all...

    Im just sayin tho...I have seen some pretty nice 08 stis out there....especially when you tint out the led tails...

    I think the new STi hatch is awesome!

    I respect that some do not like the look of the hatch but "hatch = castrated" is an ignorant sounding statement. Like a car can't be performance because it's not what you remember or traditionally think of a performance car looking like when you were growing up. To me it's almost analogous to suggesting that it can't be a performance car if it doesn't have a V8. A view that was not uncommon some years back. Things have evolved since then and even though many in general still equate performance with big engines many more now define performance very differently.

    I'm going to venture a guess that your understanding of what is a performance car, will evolve a great deal in the years to come.

I will never ever own a hatch back. i just dont fing them appealing or attravtive. i just want to say i love the 4dr rear end and the rest of the car. i guess im just trying to fight the change eventhough it isnt going to get me newhere. when i thought of subaru i thought of the mean looking sti but now it aint so mean lookin.

    Everyone is entitled to like what they like. Nothing wrong with loving the four door design!

    For the record though by ignorant I simply meant, lacking information. Additionally, I didn't say you are ignorant, I said your statement sounds ignorant. There is a difference. I don't know you so I wouldn't make that judgement about you as a person. Heck I say/post things that sound ignorant all the time. It just depends on the subject.

    I applaud and encourage those who dislike the hatchback design.

    that car looks lowered and has aftermarket rims i believe

    Also, hatch COULD of been a great idea if it were a 2 door hatch. Why does the back end look so much like a Lexus rx330/300 soccer mom mobile.

    Thing is, I thing that the new STI has its goods and its bads. The goods are things like fender flares, interior, etc. The one thing that pisses me off is the FOUR tailpipes. I guess it looks cool, but you don't exactly need one tailpipe for one cylinder. That style belongs to the V8's...
