Thumbs up

I am in no doubt going to trade in my MY00 2.5RS for this bad boy. I think it looks awesome - not to mention the added power...

I actually like the look of the headlights with that tri-pod design (STI v. ?)

I think it looks pretty good stock, it'll have to grow on me. 300 more lbs, you know how easy it will be to make up for that since its factory turbo'd? Looks at how many incredibly fast DSM's are running around.

Good suspension will make the car feal exactly the same weight too.

Dont get me wrong, I'm all for lightness, but 300lbs is a fair traidoff for just HAVING a factory turbo here

Copec.... couldnt agree with you more, 300 lbs. is no biggy. It would be on the 2.5RS but with a factory turbo this thing is gonna haul!!!!!! Your also right about the dsm's, thats a hefty car.... peace outside.

The new WRX is only a little over 100 lbs heavier than the current 2.5rs. I don't remember the exact #'s, but the RS is in the 2800's and the WRX is about 2975 lbs. The weight difference that the magazines a talking about is compared to the old bare bones Turbo GT that was like 2700 some odd lbs. So the weight difference is not that much for us.

I have said it before and I will say it again.
They can change the style and that only makes my 2 door coupe even more rare. Since I am turning the thing into a 22B anyway it will be even rarer still. Still I hate to see the new one turn into a NEON.

The new Sport Compact Car has a review on the new Impreza body styling. First off, they like it. Second of all they say the weight is going to be slightly heavier than the japan spec (this we already knew) but the japan spec is 110 lbs more than the 2.5RS. A total of 2,948 lbs. So just add on a nice hunk of not-needed metal or two and you got U.S. weight. (interpretaion of the japan spec transforming into US spec) The overall car will be one inch bigger in length, width, track and height. The wheelbase will stay virtually the same. SCC says that there will be some sort of swirl control valve in the intake which regulates how much air flow (wheres the flow?) the impreza will be consuming. They also say that a "untested" or reliable source has said that the US front end will be quite different. The lights are rectangular, but the roofline and fenders will stay the same. Well its a test of time... lets see what sort of clever idea Subaru has lined up for us this year.
