Harman Motive's making progress on the 08 STI already!

I have been talking with the wife and I do believe that I am seriously going to be going after the 08/09 STI. Money is the current issue, but I also think I want to hold out for the Recaro's. I'm certain I'd be disappointed to go from my EAP Recaro's to seats that even a lot of current STI guys are disappointed with. Anyway, I've been following this for a few days over on IWSTI.com and for those of you who like them, you should check out what this company is accomplishing so far with these cars. Mind you, these haven't even been released out here in IL yet, let alone the East Coast. This company, Perrin and Cobb have already been releasing some seriously nice equipment on these. Looks very promising! Anyway, check it out:

I like the STi, but I hate that 08+ front end. The 06-07 front end was teh sex.

I personally like the new WRX styling. That STi in white though.....DROOOOOOLLL!! With the tail light overlays help wonders the new grill really looks nice. I may seriously consider buying a few years down the road.

Yeah, she's looking like a hot little number. Did you guys get that they are doing the tuning through the stock SI Drive knob so that you can induce your tuned maps through the stock switch!? I know it is a big extreme in change and there is some serious division on the looks and all, but when the numbers hit the pavement so to speak, this car is bad!

I'd like it more if it came in a two-door configuration...

Only because I've long been of the opinion that a true sports car should have no more than two passenger doors.

^^ ditto on the two door thing. I also think the fender flares are too funky, dont look as good as the previous ones. But yeah... must be nice to drive it.
