Just got finished watching it, pretty cool. I wish I would have started counting how many times they said all wheel drive in the show (felt like a million) Cool rally footage, still not enough for me. Also not enough emphasis put on the Impreza. Still a cool show. They said Nothing about the infamous USA spec WRX though. The STX looked interesting, they need to make it all one color though.

The STX was better looking than I thought. It looks like....well....a rally inspired SUV. That truck would look awesome in two tone Black and silver.

Bah, not enough on the RS, but like it was said before, enough with the AWD allready, I think they must have said ti about a billion times....Everytime I see it, the Legacy Gt looks meaner and meaner....

I was a bit disappointed. I lost track of how many times they showed the "old" Legacy and "old" RS. And the STX? I can already see the "benefits" of GM owning part of FHI. Looks like Pontiac got put in charge of styling the thing. (hrm.. can't seem to find a vomiting smilie anywhere )

After watching that I will now always mentions "Subaru's all-wheel-drive driving system" and "three time FIA world rally championship" every time I desribe my car!

Strange how they show the RS going "off-road" but it says in the manual "This is not an off-road vehicle and should not be used as such". What's up with that!

Thought the special was cool! So did my wife she wants to trade the OBS for a Forester S. They look so much better with the monochrome paint. I told her we could trade the OBS for the Forester if I can get a turbo next year. The STX did look better then picks in the magazines. If they built it would have to be more conservative. To many tack ons, goofy paint, ugly wheels, and much rear overhang also. The concept features and basic shape is good though. Kinda did look like Pontiac styling. The RS footage was cool. It was cheesey how they would show older moldels while talking about 2000s. The 99 Rally Blue RS with gold wheels was cool. My neighbor has one like that.
