We are happy because we got the WRX and probably would have bought the thing had it been even more radically designed. The Japanese on the other hand aren't too wild about the styling and they have alternatives to the WRX...so something had to give. Would I rather have had the GC8 styled WRX? Sure; I like the styling of it better, it looks more agressive. Do I hate the styling of the current car? No I actually like the styling of the current car although the headlights turned me off at first, they grew on me, especially after I purchased the car and drove it
. I vote collector's item, although I'm guessing it's going to be the other way around since there are quite a few people that don't like the way it looks. My guess is yes they are going to change the headlights/front bumper (more streamlined, no bulging) and probably put on a larger wing on the back.
