I still ain't sold on the new shape. Might grow on me over the next few months though.

Re: SPOTTED - new sti

well i went to the motorshow yesterday and definately its growing on me. seeing it in person and up close and sitting in it has changed my mind.

although the rear felt a bit claustro.

there was a WRX S. and it did look the nackers.
dark grey wheels on it.

dunno how true this is but the bloke there reckoned that mitsubishi will be putting their evo to a hatchback aswell next time round?

Re: SPOTTED - new sti

I didn't like the MY03 STI when it was first released but then I ended up buying one and loved it. I think it's just the shock of seeing the Scooby turn in to a hatchback. The Evo 10 looks amazing though.
I hope they turn the scooby back in to a saloon next time.

Re: SPOTTED - new sti

i agree with that about the 03 shape.
i thought it was terrible but now it looks brilliant.
i normally find i prefer the look of the one 2 models ago all the time.
i didnt like my own hawkeye at first.

the new one just needs to be roughed up a bit.

oh and if youve seen an evo in real life you might change your mind. all the photos made it look superb, but ive seen two now...a white and a red... nasty.
think there was alot of photoshopping or something going on with the pics.

oh and there IS a saloon of the new impreza....only in usa though sadly

Re: SPOTTED - new sti

Got to agree with you, the pictures of the Evo 10 look amazing, I've yet to see one close up. the Impreza burble is unique, Evo will never have that.
I've not been tempted to move over to an Evo yet, it's Scooby all the way for me.

Re: SPOTTED - new sti

dont worry, as i said- the evo looks apalling in the flesh.
its not got all the superb styling that the photos led us to believe.

and apparently the 2010 model is going hatchback like subaru has done.
