Post WRX Commercial..?

It was really neat.. apparently there is more than one commercial out there.. but I saw the rally blue one. I'm only surprised they showed the old rally car sliding around corners and not the new one..

i have seen the wr blue one 4 times now and i almost recorded it so i could watch it over and over maybe learn a few things from the profesional driver behind the wheel. None the less the commercial is sick.

I guess I don't watch enough TV, I haven't seen any commercials yet? Hey, do they mention 0-60 times at all? I know the magazine add does, say's 6.4 seconds? Even though some of the car magazines have had it closer to 5.8 seconds? Just wondering.

C&D has it clocked at 5.8...quarter mile of 14.7@93.

The most interesting spec is the top gear accel test. 30-50 = 14.0 sec. 50-70 = 9 sec. Makes sense...at 30mph the engine is only pulling 1500rpm. But man, what a slingshot it must feel like when that second 20mph comes on in 5 seconds less time...

...stopped by Subaru of Manchester, and spoke with a young guy. Didn't let me test drive the WRX there (it already had 50 miles, and they didn't want to put on many more), but he offered to pay off the remainder of my lease for a WRX. Temptation island, my butt. The real story is in NE.

Webkris you rule for posting those!

Bill really wants one. It's evil that he keeps seeing the commercials all day at work.

So far I've seen 3 of them.

2 with the silver car (One on wet/one on dry) and one with the Blue/Rally cars.

They need one with the wagon toasting a Camaro or something....

Thumbs up

No problem Flea - I haven't seen them on TV, and I knew that someone would have them on the board quick. I found it in the WRX forum a few moments after Korey posted. I love them too!

Usually when a company does commercials they make a 60, 30, and 10 second spot. I'd love to see the 60 - if they have it. I'd like to see SOA post it. I will mention it to my contact. - Kris

The damn commercials are working, at least on me they are. I'm trying to be patient and wait until next year to by the WRX, but I'm driving myself crazy in doing so. I keep driving through the dealer lot looking at what they have. I just can't do this now, (yes you can). I need to try to think of cars as appliances that get me from point A to point B. Its that drive between the points that is so damn fun though. If this doesn't get me divorced I think I will be married for life.
