Would you go for it instead of the IS300??
personally, i might....but i still love my SBM!!.




i think this pic looks a lot better than the current WRX, which looks like a neon from front view ..

Nah, I would still stay with my SBM, it is to boxy, they should have kept the same style of the 01 RS.

If it looked like that it may have made the list of cars i was considering! Subaru doesn't have the same ring as LEXUS though

Looks WAY much better than the current Subaru
Uhm.... strange... my eyes are telling me that the headlight design is similar to the IS300. or, I think I need to get my eyes re-check again... damn stigmatism....

haha..
true.. but i gotta admit though.. that WRX looks a lot nicer than current one man..
and same price, i heard from japan article that that style was the original design of new WRX, but they decided to go for the current one.. well.. i just wanna say.. Suburu can fire those who voted on the current model!



and Suburu is not in the same class as LExus.. true.. but for those who live in areas where AWD is a necessity.. then i think. that style of WRX is a perfect fit..

anyway.. i think this car looks good..

Dude, I posted that pic a long time ago (and two others).
Search the parking lot. Just to warn you ahead of time, the pics I posted are on geocities, so you'll probably get red x's when if you find that thread.

This was the completed prototype for the WRX. I would have definetly got this. But then the design team at Subaru discovered Mushrooms that grow on Cow Dung and wanted to give the WRX eyes so it could see the little aliens that they were seeing.

Rally inspired. That's why. Just be glad it doesn't have 4 fog lights like some of the WRC cars. EEEK!

If the WRX looked like that pic, had nicer interior than the 2002, had a sunroof/moonroof option, and didn't have the check engine light problem, I would probably get it over the IS. Those are all big "if's" though.

BTW, my ex got rear-ended yesterday by a semi in his new WRX wagon.
He doesn't even know if the replacement parts are readily available yet. That sucks.


He took pics - I'll try to post them tonight.
