    I don't think anyone said it couldn't be discussed. However, this is the " Official 2008 Impreza WRX Information" thread and it's in the "News & Announcements" forum... It's not a comparison thread in the comparison forum. Additionally, don't take my previous post too seriously. I was just kidding around.

    I've read this entire thread and not one of you addressed the upcoming Evo.
    It's addressed in dozens of threads floating about the forum, including in comparison to the MY08 WRX. This thread was intended to be an official information thread with regards to the new WRX. Perhaps we should have titled it such. Oh wait...


    Don't have such a thin skin. People are just poking fun.

    Waaaaaahmulance anyone?

    Oh... my... god.

    That guy whines more than my two kids combined. The exhaust isn't prominent enough? Is he kidding? Maybe he'll like the fake dual exhaust on the sedan. Poser.

    Nothing like reading an entire article of merciless *****ing. Nice writing skills. He even whines when he complements something. That makes for a great article. What a baby.

    He contradicts himself so many times it made my head spin. He only likes funky cars, but he hates all of the awkward styling cues on the car? The new car is too homogenized but lacks the style of the other cars in the market? He does this over and over. Stretching for things to piss about are we?

    How many of you said "Oh no, the finger indents are touching the horizontal body line!" when you saw the pictures? Who even talks like that? This guy is more like a cross between a high fashion clothes designer and Simon Cowell than a car guy. I wonder if he even drove the car. "This third side glass destroys any hope of haveing the body percieved as that of a true performance car." Um, it's not. It is a fun, cheap, economy hatch, not a Corvette. He admits that the new car is "superior in performance and comfort" but isn't funky enough for him. Nice priorities. He should check out the convertable VW new beetle, it's cute. This is not a car for fashion queens who are only interested in style. Never has been.

    Sure, the car is boring. So what? Like the lauded GC Imprezas that the original STis were based on were so exiting and stylish? Bish please. The blobeyes were made to mellow the car out after everyone cried about how funny the '02s looked. And then everyone freaked when the Vageye's (I also like to call them pigsnouts) came out for being too wierd looking. It's the end of the world every time.

    I've seen the '08s in person and they look good. I like the hatch shape. The back seat looked roomy. I didn't find my self asking if the grill was sagging or any of that bull crap. Like any stock car, they will look even better w/ aftermarket performance wheels, a small drop and some tint. Not to mention that the speculative pics we've seen of the new STI (like the one on the cover of R&T a couple of months ago) look down right sexy in my opinion.

    This clown is blatantly just trying to make waves by writing a scathing article about the new body style of a legendary car. Pathetic. The end.

    If he's not even a car guy, and he realizes how ugly it is... then I can see why us car guys on the forum are btching and moaning.

    Seriously... How many times do you need to tell everyone that it's ugly and you don't like it?

    Subaru is not going to stop production for you. You don't need to keep trying to convince everyone it's ugly/bad whatever.

    You don't like it ...WE GET IT!
