I know I'm old and all, but I really don't get the flopped-over antenna thing (forward or backward). What's the deal there?

Absolutely awesome, I remember some posters comparing the looks to the super-hotness of the Focus rally car and it really jumps out at me in these photos!

According to my students:

Tight= Good

Tite= REALLY good

Tyte= Awwwww yeahhhhhh.... I be all up on that, dawg!


Anyway.....

Contrary to many of the opinions I've heard, I like this better than any Sti I've seen yet. Even if rumors of a way too soft suspension are confirmed, it's nothing a good set of springs and shocks won't fix. I want this one bad.

4 pipes look nice though. I wonder if those mufflers would fit on a LGT?

I hope this car handles as good as the outgoing EVO MR.

I just feel disapointed with the new STI. I hoped for it to have nicer seats and more HP and it has not from what I have seen and heard so far

I was hoping for 330 HP 330 LB FT Torque with a 1/4 mile time of 12.6 @ 106 MPH and seats more EVO like in suport for spirited driving.

I just dont see myself getting a new one and sad as I sold my 04 already. The only good thing is someone gave me $27,000 for it back in March.

I really want to make myself buy it, but the interior is just soooo damn cheap in look and feel. I thought my 06' was pretty bad already, now its gotten worse.

I see at least one person got a look at that rear suspension. So what is it- aluminum? steel? cast, forged, or stamped? Gimme DETAILS...

photos but no text after the link- ugh

where are the Laguana Seca cars going to be during the autoshow? Presumably they've got a fresh one for inside the show. I'll be in town, and I'd love to get a drive if they are out as test vehicles somewhere else...

Hmmm... the red is kind of dissappointing! I was thinking about a red one for my wife, but it really doesn't show the lines/fender flares very well! Oh well, guess I'll stick with silver/grey.

Yeah, it only took these pictures 3 days to bounce from this forum, to a blog, and then back to this forum as a new thread.
