    Man. If the road-going STI looked as good as this, I'd have a very different opinion of the new WRX. As it is, I'm all about the Evo, but boy does this rally-spec STI look good! I can see people buying the STI and sinking a lot of money in it to get it looking like this. After all, it's allegedly a damn good car; just bloody horrible to look at!

    Sorry Van it does nothing for me. Looks like it's got a fat ass. I was going to mention Mother-in-law and fat ass in the one sentence but I figured that would get me in BIG trouble with Mel-D.

    That's not to say that it wont grow on me.

    cheers

    I quite like the fat ass, but the front is a bit too long. Anyway, it's turbocharged and 4wd so it has to be alright !!

    I don't mind it, but they need to make a twin turbo version of the H6 3.0l engine. Then I would consider a subi

    IMO Subaru have been going out of their way to design ugly cars for about a decade, starting with the bug-eyed WRX of the late '90s :confused:

    ...

    Then again, given Mitsubishi's efforts of the last five years, those who life in glass houses... :rolleyes:


    Err, I'm confused - are we still talking about your mother-in-law's ass?? If so I think its fairly safe to say that's not a very healthy relationship :(
