I liked the bug-eyes... Not saying they were 'good' looking, but it definitely made the car more noticeable from the Hondas, Toyotas, and other 2WD cars out there.
I think it was best put by someone on this board when they said that Subaru appealed to the small group of followers and didn't care what others thought. I think that is a good way for a not-so-mainstream company to go about business. Build a niche and stick with it. But how many complaints could they really get about the lights? They're fine.... I guess if they coulda made the four-light pod standard (or whatever the racier ones are...)
Oh well, I guess we'll have to get used to the new one and really cherish our MY02s as one of a kinds.... hey, all the better.
