Well, expect alot more of it!

As more new people come across this forum, im sure they will say the same.

Do any of you actually like the looks? Or did you get the car for its drive-ability?

Thanks,

n@rco

It's probably best to keep your discusions under a single topic. And Yes I like the looks of the car. When I first saw it, I was kinda shocked and didn't like it very much. By the time I got my car though, it was looking better and better. The old style just looks old to me now.

hehe,

I dont think I said anything worth being banned over.

Unless you consider being compared to a neon a bad ban-able offense.

relax.

didnt mean to start another thread, my apologies.

Looks is important, but performance is more of a priority. And from what I've heard the wrx does well.

Is there any performance kits avail? (bigger turbo's, etc)

When I first saw the new Japanese spec WRX's about a year ago, I thought of Porsche too. Especially with the HID headlights.

I really like the look of the new Impreza - just as much as the old Impreza style. Although the 2002 is not as aggressive looking, it still turns heads! You won't see another car on the road like it!

I bought mine for both. For me it was either the Impreza RS or the Sentra SE w. sports suspension. The Impreza looks so badass (esp the older style) and the ride is really solid, handling is awesome. I love my car.

Actually, the 2002 is MUCH more agressive looking!

Sloped hood, buling fenders, grill is /\ instead of \/, looks like its going at you!

ever heard of something called an opinion? i might like something you might not like does it make it bad? no. so why bring something like this up it has been talked about TOO MUCH. if you dont like it best to yea, its your choice, for the people who respect it welcome to the big family.

SCC put it the best:
for those of you who cant stand the new WRX's bulging headlamp treatment and flared fenders theres an alternative. buy something else in this segment-and stare at the subys taillights.

before you say my supra will beat you remember how much a supra cost brand new and how much a wrx cost brand new.
peace

Go an actually see one in person and touch it... caress it... love it.

It doesnt look like a neon on the track either. Watched some video of one today. Damn it was actually looking pretty nice.

Yeah I dig the car's looks. I'm a big fan of sleepers, though. I never really liked the looks of the last-gen Supra, personally, but man do those things move...

I think the 2002 WRX is ugly. But I know what it is capable of and that it is a subaru. the 360 is ugly too, but man, if I could own either or both, I would. My taste may differ from others, but that's why it's mine. Many cars over the years are ugly but they all have a following. gremlin,pacer,corvair,tr7,edsel,etc... just to name a few. now before you lovers of afore mentioned models jump on me, just remember that even though i think theyre ugly, that doesnt mean i can't appreciate them.

I /don't/ think a WRX is as ugly as a gremlin. Or a pacer for that matter.

Wanna talk about ugly cars, lets talk about some volvos. For about a decade the things looked like refridgerators on wheels.

Geez are you guys having an inferiority complex that if a person says that the new Impreza looks like a neon he/she is called a troll. Everyone is entitled for their own opinions hence the birth of this message board!
No i don't think the new Impreza looks like a neon. I see more of a Kia cus there were mutlitple times when I actually mistook one for one another!
So what! It's still a Subaru and it will haul arse!

Wow....I really like the way my Neon looks.

If it was an insult it was a pretty weak attempt. Also, anyone who actually HAS a Supra TT wouldn't waste time trolling around an Impreza board. Think about it

His exhaust is single tip because it is a 2.5 RS. The WRX has the dual-tip, the RS's had the single tip
