I recently visited Subaru of Sherman Oaks (previously part of Big Vally Dodge; Big Valley sold the Subaru franchise to Casa Auto Group). They had a blue 2008 Subaru WRX with a few upgrades, so I snapped some pics. Sorry for not being the best, but I got as many of the items I thought important to Subaru enthusiasts. If you live in SoCal, drop me a PM. Subaru of Sherman Oaks will be holding some events in the future, especially when the STIs come around.

Aftermarket Grille & Aero Kit









Stubby Antenna, Dual Rear Exhausts, Rear Trunk Spoiler











Aluminum Wheels?


205/50/17" Tires




Sticker

i never understood the concept of cup holders in doors.
You would be surprised. My wife has 6 cupholders in her Rav4 and she has all of them filled with something....tanning lotion, water bottles, baby bottles, etc. They are an improvement over the old style map pockets but if i had them in my car I know I wouldn't ever use them.

I guess chalk it up to Subaru wanting this car to appeal to a broader audience and having more cupholders to advertise about would get the point across. Most consumers really do consider how many cupholders a car has....maybe I will ask my wife why that matters :).

Sorry buy I am just so disappointed by the 08 Sedan

I mean honestly, I can't even begin to like it. It has some nice features, but overall I just dislike, I might even hate it. I seriously wouldn't even recomend it:


Why is it smiling at me?


And excuse my language but WTF is up with those taillights?....???:confused::confused::confused:



$30,000+ for that? For a worse-than-previous-year-model WRX Sedan? (personal opinion). I paid less than that for my brand new 05 STi!!!!


Is that a plastic manifold on my 30+ thousand dollar car?

Personal opinion and a little bit of a rant but come on! If the wrx is 30 grand and looks like this! What will the STi cost (35+) and what kind of parts will it have? :confused::confused::confused::confused: :(:(

i hadn't seen the tail lights before...they are pretty horrendous. I'm not sure what to say about the plastic manifold either, i mean...yikes.

I am sure Subaru will be dissappointed with the new Impreza when they can't give them away. Wow. A WRX costs 30 large now? downgrade + large increase in price=good luck Subaru!

Re: Sorry buy I am just so disappointed by the 08 Sedan

ok, the 30K is a bad deal. Not only would I not pay that for a WRX. But i don't see how they will be able to keep the pricing down on the STi. looks like those suckers are going to be like 40K

Oh and that thing is ugly as hell.

Ok, now that i have seen all these pics i can offically say I don't like it at all. The exhaust setup is kinda restrictive. not a fan of the rear, I don't like the new door cards, I think the old ones with inlays looked much better.

My heart dropped for a second. I thought that was an STi, till i read the thread. I started getting super excited since it was a sedan. Damnit subaru, why can the sti be a sedan, more so a fu*king 2 door like everyone asks!
