So glad I bought an 07 SE. It is amazing how much better the pig snouts look when you see the 08.
IMHO

The people that designed the sedan model obviously drive KIA Rio's because the rear end looks exactly like those cheap korean cars. Subaru designers should be fired for designing such an ugly sedan..

Oh, gotcha, that makes sense... I didn't get it at first given its placement... and I couldn't read the Japanese writing on it

I'm guessing, middle rear passenger shoulder harness? Tucked nicely away for transport and for when the middle seat is empty. When a middle passenger sits down, they need to grap this belt and buckle both ends into it to get their seatbelt done up.
