well the design of the new models is supposedly to appeal to the mass market. its an european design similar to ford & madza.

no offense to the 2006/7 impreza owners, i didnt like it at first and after a long time it finally grew on me. I am hoping that the 2008/9 models would do the same.

I saw a photo of what the WRC model would look like and I really like it. Wider body kit with other cool exterior mods.

I didn't like it from looking at the commericals on cable...it kinda looked like a saab...but i saw the jdm one on japandirect-tt.com and it looks ok to me...totally different from the old one though... :(

VJTEK..good choice.... it's a lovely ride, sits nicely around corners and at hide speeds. The N/A is really economical for a 2.0 and the tiptronic pulls well.

If you're interested in a local N/A 2005 legacy pm me (PBU Series with 39 000km and still under N&M warranty)

I ilke it, nice up scale interoor, fit and finish, modern stylish body design and good ergonomics, kinda of reminds me of my VW.

might get one for the Wife.
Its also a bit pricy starting at 170K but I think that the price will go down eventually. I think that 155-158 is a good fair price.

Have to drive the 1.6 but at 105 bhp with AWD it will most probably be underpowered. The 2.0 will be a better bet at expensive at 215K. For that money I can get another used Forrester XT.

Still its a cool car and the hatch design stands out from the Crowd

wrx and sti have a different engine.a boxer engine that give them a nice rumble and i've heard the extractors also contribute to this.
