Yeah they added the fender flares in '11. But I guess I was more concerned with the side skirts below the driver and passenger doors.

No it's deffinatly a subaru. I just don't think it's a wrx like it claims.
Hold the phone, people modify the looks of their cars to look like more than they are? Like adding an STi wing to a standard WRX?
Or people modify their cars to look different and stand out?!?!

Usually if a person wants to be a smart ass, you should have your facts correct. Because now, your just more of a dumb ass.

yea no option your right. Its on '08, the 09-10's had a black plastic piece as its dull looking "diffuser". Where as the 08's would keep it the same color as the car.

If I bought one of those wrx's then the fender flare wrx's came out in '11, I would be very upset. IMO.

You need to look up the difference between your and you're.

I have an 09 and prefer it over the 11. I ha thought about buying an 11 when they came out. However you lose the bit of sleeper effect. They both have the exact some drievtrain an power train.

The 2009-2010 WRX got the aero kit standard, even if you didn't order the premium model. Also, the diffuser is black on the 2009-2010 WRX whereas that one is body-colored. The 2009-2010 WRX had those wheels, but in gunmetal/dark grey instead of the silver you see there. What you see there is the plainest iteration of the 2008+ WRX in existence. The factory aero kit, even on the non-flared 2009-2010 WRX, adds a lot to the look.

yea i feel the same way. I was on the outskirts of wanting to trade my 09 in for a '13 for alil while. But its basically the same car, minus a few differences in the front bumper, the rear is def better, and the flares.
Hell i can go out and buy all that stuff if i really wanted the newer flares and everything else, but like you said, i kinda like the look of our models. It doesnt stand out to the cops as much. lol

I like the 09-10 WRXs. They look really nice... well the hatch back does. ( To me at least ) However, the 2008 WRX is...hideous.

Run a carfax on it. There's been a bunch of cases of counterfeit WRX's ever since that big storm hit the East coast.
