Whew! The car looks a LOT better in these pics. I think the car will grow on me, and doesn't look as bad as I first thought.

The first pic looks great. Just add a Prodrive wing and, damn, that is a nice looking car.

Every time I see it I like it a bit more, looks like a old 911. If for some reason I don't like it, at least I won't see it from the drivers seat

A car in motion looks so much better for some reason. Maybe when we see it flying around a track it will look alot better.

It's starting to look like a respectable car. Of course it still needs a spoiler. And it better have a turbo underhood. Then I will take one.

Hehe... guess the pics were real huh? I guess some people thought it was so ugly they couldn't or didn't want to believe that they were real. Haha...

Looks good though.. wish I knew what the hell the mag was saying though.

Looks like Dutch, which if you're good at German you can mostly make out.

My take is that there's nothing new in the blurb. They comment on the old Impreza GT (2.0L turbo AWD in the UK) name is gone and now they are called WRX. They also note the wide fenders.

If someone spots more detail they can probably actually read Dutch. LOL.

All it needs is a new headlight design, a wing, and it looks pretty sweet.

just want to say you did a poor job lowering the car, and everyone thought the other pictures looked doctored. Did anyone else notice what I did??`

My theory on the hood vents is that they were taken off because people kept asking why the vents were there if they didn't do anything.

Now these pics look real. I still believe those supposed Japanese dock pictures are fake though. There were to many flaws in those pics to be real. My theory is that these pics from switzerland are real, and were sold to the dutch mag. Thus the dutch mag had the rights to the pictures. The Japanese mags didn't want to be beaten to it, so they just used edited pics to get around the copyright. Actually when I first saw the pics(the front and rear of the dutch pics, and the orange ones) I kinda liked it, it was just those damn dock pics that sucked.

JD, well actually these pics were the first to be seen. PWRup didn't edit these, they were originally posted a few weeks ago(then only the front and rear because they were yet to appear in the dutch mag). Yes they do look very low, much lower than we will likely see from production. Remember though, that car was supposedly there for a photo shoot. They were probably taking pics for its inital advertisements, the lowering springs won't make it to production, but will make the advertisements look good. Just think of it as what the car can look like with a good set of aftermarket shocks/springs.

Oh, my bad. It looks good that way though. If I get one, some lower springs are defidently going on it(maybe not quite that low though).

Am I the only one who noticed that the Dock pictures by MagX have a different lower front? More particularly the vents near the fogs?
