08's are the ugliest and slowest. BUT, after going stage 2 and installing a N1 style lip kit (front, sides, and rear spats) I can honestly say that I love mine more than any of the years. Besides hawkeyes maybe, lol.

To upload photos from the app just download Imagr, make an account, upload the photo, and then copy the link. Tap the "+" in the upper right corner and then paste in the image link. It's that easy.

Default i think...

I think that they made a wrx limited...and it was just a clean normal looking car. I could be wrong, but I remember seeing an automatic wrx with leather and stuff and it looked like a normal car on the outside. It was an 09 I think, mayb 08, it was when I bought my 09 legacy i saw it. But rly, who would buy an automatic wrx like psh.

Nah man that is definitely an STI that did the popular non wide body swap. Also since the STI was only a hatch 08-10 they also did some minor body work to make it a sedan. Going for that sleeper look.

On a serious note, not all narrow body's are fugly.

The 08 is a 09 without the VF52, spring/struts, 09+ RSB, preimium lip kit, tires, grill, aluminum pedals and red stitching. Easy fixes IMO....whats the big deal ?

I've been moticing lately that a lot of cars are stsrting to look the same. I saw a ford and a kia today at the light and they look like the same exact car. My bugeye on the other hand is unmistakable. Kinda bored with the bland looks these days imo.

I bought a 4EAT It was 5k cheaper than the manual 2 years ago. though I would've loved the manual, I dont mind it anyway, it's still super fun, just wish the drivetrain loss wasnt so bad.

That's pretty significant if you ask me. The body work/turbo/suspension parts+labor wouldn't be cheap...

True manuals are going away, we may all be in denial, but even Ferrari and Porsche are slowly phasing them out
