Seriously I've always loved teh hatch style. The only thing that kept me from getting a Focus SVT was the reliability thing. This kinda looks like a mean pissed off Focus SVT and I'm cool with that.

Oh, That's Hawt! I knew Subaru would pull through on the STI. Look at those sexy flares... mmmm. And I am not a huge fan of hatchbacks either.

I'll take the evo. First thing I'd do is paint the rest of the grill, but I'm digging it more than the STi

Um... neither of those cars exists yet. Note the "estimated" conjecture of Road and Track's crack Photoshop team.

Hate to say it, but at this time, going from only what we've seen, the Evo X still pwns this STi on the looks dept. This new illustration is a huge improvement, though. If it truely comes to pass, then seeing it in the metal or in a whole bunch more pics may be necessary to change my mind.

You crapped out a hot wheel when you were a kid? Damn, I thought the Ryan Dunn was the only person to do that....

No, Ryan Dunn is one of the dudes from the Jackass/Johnny Knoxville crew that sticks a toy car up his ass. Goes and gets x-rays, wierds out a doctor, real funny stuff.

Sorry for the thread jack, Guru.

Evo X > 08 STi. I hate to say it, but when it comes time for my next car, I believe that is what it will be. I decided that last week when I was reading about it in a mag at the doctors office. I don't do wagons/hatches.

I think it looks good, but it does kind of lean more towards "Retrograde Rice" to me...

This actually makes me like the '06's more.
