Default AW vs. SWP vs. 2010?

I'm making a move soon on getting an STI. I currently own a 2006 Steel Gray Metallic WRX and it's my favorite color and stays cleaner much more than my wifes SWP legacy (I feel like I wash it every other day, haha)...BUT, I love the white! I'm so torn!

Should I look for a used 2008 AW

Get the 2009 SWP

or wait for 2010 (hopefully Steel Gray Metallic, if not white)

I would wait for the 2010 and I think Subaru does Dark Gray Metallic now...

If you can afford it wait for 2010, you can always get an 08 or 09 even after the 2010 comes out

This is the color of my WRX, it's a darker silver, almost the color of the STI grill. I just have a gut feeling it's coming! I hope I'm right...

That's the plan, i just think if it's the same car, I'd rather get a 2009 and I'm afraid I won't find the SWP. It's much more rare than any of the other suby colors.

I'd wait to see what 2010 brings as well. you probably have about 5-6 more mos of waiting though.

All good, more time to save and my current car has about 4months left to be paid on anyways.


WOW! no one likes the SWP, I think it looks soo nice...

Also, doesn't the 08s have more issues than the 09s?

i just got the 2009 SWP because i simply could not wait any longer. 2010 may have some nice things but you can always be waiting for the next model too. i figure if it's THAT much better, i'll just trade up and take the hit on the $ later on. i am in love with my 09 SWP tho.
