Seems like more BMW owners convert to scoobies, or vice versa, than anything else

Looks awesome. For some reason I never thought of Subaru as rice, simply because they have such great performance from the factory and their more recent styling seems way above what I'd consider rice.

Ahhhh, you gotta go sti man...haha. But on a serious note, those cars are sick. I drove one the other day and was really surprised with how fast it was, and the way it drove. Plus I really like hatch backs.

Haha, I was just pulling your leg man. I would imagine insurance would run you pretty high on such a car. But hey no matter how you look at it, the car is still very nice. I'm sure you'll have fun with it.

Those wrx's are just as quick as the sti 0-60, the qrt mile tho goes to the sti. My dad has the 09 sti, its pretty quick stock. Wait until you drive it in the snow, it just owns the road.

Eh, I also have a 2007 forester ll bean NA. The turbo would be better, but subies are meant for camping/hauling/snow duty anyway. It's a compromise either way.

u gotta see it in person, the back looks a lot better than the sedan version, i thought the sedans tails looked like a kia and the rear end didnt fit as well as the hatches btw they are the same price why not get more for your $ Now I just cant wait till they get my car in they said 1-2 weeks its being shipped on a truck from nj.

I have seen it in person, taken it on a test drive as well. Won't argue the performance but the looks are hate it or love it.. you can guess which side I'm on. My favorite WRX bodystyle is the 2005.

New Kia's look decent actually, they've really started improving their styling.

How many HP on that thing?

I was so close to buying one (the standard Impreza hatch) in 2008 but got my 330i instead
