Yeah that's how it seems to me too! I had mine and they were rare. No one was interested in them. Then people figured out all you have to do is throw a turbo on em and they're fast, and they're everywhere! I miss my RX8 sometimes. Whitewater pearl paint, balcked out windows and tailights, mazdaspeed ground effects and spoiler, black wheels with a polished lip, and racing beat engine upgrades made for a clean sexy ride.
One thing I do love about Subaru's though is when you have one, everyone else that has one is cool with ya, the community is cool. For the most part. I've met a few snobs before too that look down on less modified subies.
Actually I've got a picture of my Mazda with my subie behind it lol
