    Though in this case it is just another in an everlasting series of new packages for a unique and already well established product.

    At the end of the day they need to keep the ball rolling and take advantages of market opertunities.

    Its still has all the fun stuff inside.

    looks like they got rid of the nice red brakes and put back the ****ty gray ones. imo this is not a wrx. its a completely new car with a hood scoop and impreza badge on the back. **** you Subaru i hate you now. ill never buy your stupid car.

    I actually love the butt on the new WRX...it has a shape and looks all shiny and futurey...I could do without the chrome thing on the back though.

    The front it ok but, for some weird reason, every time I see the grill...I find the front end looking like a pt cruiser...makes me cry. And even though the scoop is now all aerodymagical...I still like my scoop better.

    My initial reaction was something like "WTF IS THIS PIECE OF **** DOING IN THE ****** *** ***** ******* ****************************"

    That sounds about right...but it isn't bad enough for me to hate it just yet. It all depends on what the 2010 models end up looking like whether or not I will go with the 09 or 2010 STI...or maybe the evo if I am sick of manual in 2 years. (I always liked paddle shifters.)

    Sti hatch

    I just went to my local dealer today, and he told me that the 08 STi will only come in a hatch version, so I was like WTF! I don't know if someone put a pic of it on here already but here it is.

    The 2008 STi Japanese version will come in both hatch and sedan.

    I think I might sell my 02 bugeye and buy a 2007 STi in a few months. Something tells me that trying to get a used version of these in the next few years will be hard to do, b/c people will be hanging on to them b/c all they can get is a hatch STi.

    i am in on the hatch. I was initially going to get a wrx wagon, but will wait for the hatch STI.

    I can use the extra space for stuff, especially now that there is a little one in the house and getting the driving experience of an STI with a more Family friendly space is very appealing to me.

    i am sure a lot of people will not like the new style, but since when has subaru been all about looks? it is about the driving experience.

    most people hated the 2006 + style, but it has grown on most, including me. i think that the new style will grow on people as well once they have been driven, modified, and the experience of how the new models drive is shared.

    It's not super aggressive, but definitely not boring either. The grill looks better for some reason, I like the flared fenders, pretty much everything.

    Maybe not the spoiler, but we'll see.

    Good news...

    a lot of people think the STi's spoiler is a bit much. The new hatchback actually looks better with the spoiler on!....... The 2.5 and wrx are pretty boring imo, but if the STi does end up looking like that....... sweet!

    More pics. Not sure if these were posted here yet.

    Dare I say the STI looks BETTER than the EVO in that pic? The EVO X has always looked great to me, very aggressive. Next to the STI in that pic. the EVO looks almost silly, like it is over done.

    Looks like a five door version of the first gen. focas SVT, which looks great imo. This picture is why I LOVE hatchbacks.

    Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice.

    Very nice. I havent seen that one yet....... the more suttle spoiler is cool..... although I'm not sure if I like it more than the larger one in previous pics.
    hmmmmm........they both make a big difference in accomplishing a more agressive look.

    I was just thinking........If the STi doesnt end up looking any good..... well that will just skyrocket the resale value on my 05 STi..........
