    What do you guys think.. is this it?  I don't even think Gold wheels will help this thing. [:(]

    Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the back of the car, understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car, horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take it with you.

    If they keep the limited-slip front and rear differentials, and it's under $40k, I'd buy it.  I like it better than the current one, cause it's a wagon!

    It needs to be de-tunered.  It looks like it has a cheap aftermarket bodykit.

    Rear looks like an M coupe.  I think the designer need to go back to school on this one.  Suby's are getting uglier with each incarnation.  EVO looks 10x better.

    As I've heard others say, if I wanted a Mazda 3 I would buy one.  [N]

    Pictures have officially been released.

     Looks slightly better with the five spoke wheels, but they look exactly like RX-8 wheels!

    Lets see, shrink the Tribeca to get the basic shape. Apply some contemporary styling cues used by Mazda, Mercedes, Alfa Romeo and who knows what else and you've got a new design. The scoop looks kind of cool. To me its not "bad"(Tribeca was "bad"), this is just not not very good. The thing that I've always liked about Subarus is the quirkyness of their designs. You'd never call them great automotive art, but they tend to look like what they do well, tough taunt reliable machines. This version looks like the funky kid in the class trying to look like the "cool" kids, when he/she was better off just remaining funky.  Still if it performs well I'd take a look at it. My Forester, my mother's Legacy and all the STis and WRXs around have made me a big Subaru fan. Although if I turn up in a car with the color of the one Chris posted shoot me

    Well, I like it. Then again, I also think the Mazda 3 is one of the better looking cars on the market. FWIW, I still think the Evo X is uglier than sin, but there is a regular new lancer just down the street from us and it actually looks pretty good.

    Not sure if I like the new 08's yet.  I've seen a few 08s at the dealership and it hasn't grown on me yet.  Maybe the STi model will look really good in person and maybe I'll trade.  For now...I'm a bigger fan of the Evo X.  I never thought I'd say those words...

    Traitor![6] That's like George Follmer saying he'd like a Z 28 (yea, I'm old)

    The new dark grey metallic color was what I was partial to.  It should be here by the end of February if all is well.
