Default 2006 Impreza: Post What you Hate, What you Like

I'd really love to see if there are some universal consensus' on parts of the Impreza. Given that we've all seen the car inside and out with some great pics as of late, I ask you all to seperate what you like and hate into two columns. I'll start


Like:
-Top window spoiler
-Headlights
-Same interior
-Hood (I noticed this after Tragedy posted his pics. Nice lines down the middle)

Dislike:
-Front grill
-Taillights
-Trunk emblem
-Fog covers
-Unagressive look


Post yours

I like the changes to the front half.
I dislike the changes to the back half.
I love the/any changes in favor of performance, like the refined dccd system.

I will dislike not having the JDM seats, or I will love having them... subaru's choice.

It looks like what a WRX would be if it were ugly and dropped on the head as a concept car

Nothing can top the look of the STis...I wonder what the new ones will look like *shivers*

So without a 2.0L anymore, it's one less aspect dealing with the Rally heritage.

A lot of people don't like the front end, I'm sure you guys are not alone. I bet soon enough some aftermarket company will make a body kit that replaces the hood, grille, and front bumper. I'm sure it's not that hard to make.

I certainly hope so. I think this car CAN look far better than the previous STI's, but not in stock form. It'll be very interesting to see what companies start putting out for this new breed!

I've never gone from hating a design to liking is so much so fast. It's really grown on me in the past few days. I'll need to see it in person to make a final decision though.

-Best looking car in Subaru line-up (not saying much)
-Side Profile is good
-Interior is still great
-Subaru badge on the rear trunk is a huge improvement over the letters spelling out "SUBARU" on current models

Dislikes
-Heavier than ever
-Oversized Alfa nose job
-Chris Bangleized headlights look like they stole them straight from the new 530i (which is the most unflattering BMW look yet)
-Overall look is becoming too gimmicky and boy racerish (even moreso than the current STi), leave that to the customizers

Likes:

- Overall new, IMHO, more aggressive design
- Added diffuser and top spoiler (still getting used to its appearance though )
- New company front fascia
- Improved DCCD AWD
- Love that Subie "image"
- New Kenwood stereo, from what I could tell in the Japan site pics

Dislikes:

- Disappointed that the STI doesn't get more power- my biggest disappointment
- Wish we had the JDM seats
- Wish we had wider fenders a'la 22B style


This is a good idea by the way!

Cheers,
Nawambo

i like the whole car.

really like the new hood scoop and the rear windw spoiler. really hope they send the rear window wiper here on the sedan.

i dont like having 17" wheels on the WRX. 16 is fine. the cost of replacement tires is high enough allready. and they are still gonna be the RE92s i bet. but that appears to be what every one is doing so i guess they have to.

How about a post from people who have actually seen the car.

These threads give me a headache.

looking at some more phots of the cars it seems the RS does not get the flared front fenders from the WRX like it currently does. it makes the regular impreza appear a bit bland.

and dont get me wrong i think the 17s look really cool. im just not keen on the increased maintenance costs for replacement tires.
