Default 2008 STi Center Console bash...

I hate how the 08's center console looks...



Ok so... I really dislike the 2 silver stripes/border pieces on the sides of the radio/nav and I don't like how the section around the shift knob meets the upper center console, it looks like a 04 STi...

In the 05-07 models they made it... smooth and it flowed nicely...



End rant.

Also I hate the overall look of the trunk to hell, especially the piece between the tail lights and the license plate area.

I shall discuss what I want.

I am not going to buy a 08 either way, just merely discussing.

Perhaps the upcoming years SubaRu will change things.

Yes I am sure subaru is eagerly reading your useless thread, looking for ideas on what to do with the next version STi. Dude get over it. I honestly don't see how you could not like the 08 interior as I happen to think it is one of its strong points. To each his own I guess. I just don't see why you feel the need to bash it, when you don't even own one. Get over it.

The only thing I don't really like about the '08 interior is the red hazard button. There is something about it that bothers me...too shiny and blah or something. I also preferred the round heating vents but other than that, the new interior is way better than my '05's.

meh i like it. it's definitely a visual upgrade. thE gd interior was boring. the new hvac knobs are more solid feeling. the c.diff controller feels a little chintzy.
Nandan and i noticed that it comes standard with a jdm red hazard.

Yeah I'm not saying the 08 interior is worse than previous years, it's obviously better, what I'm saying is I like how the 05-07 model's center console is 1 smooth running piece, as the 08's are in 2 separate sections.
