Pulled into Tescos in Guildford today in the Black Tommi Mak... now I know the Evo isn't the best looking car on the road but have you seen the Sti 7 Prodrive style in the 'flesh'. That is one seriously ugly car. Having just sold the P1 a couple of months ago, the remaining Scooby blood cells in my system hoped that the Sti might look the biz, but alas, I think it actually looks worse than the WRX.

If reports are true about Subaru sales being down 45% year on year in the uk compared to 2000/01 and rumours of prodrive redesigning the front end of the car for 03 - then I'm not surprised after seeing that car up close.

Brace yourselves, if any Scoobynetters read this we could be invaded by the 'bug eye defenders'. Just my opinion, but **** me Subaru......

Funnily enough the new scoob gets more wonderfull each time I trounce one .
But with respect new scoob V Evo7 well debatable on looks .this is to say its a radical misuse of metal.
Having said that the new scoob looks faster than the E7.But ain't.
Any one se the jerry Clarkson head to head the other night .22B /E6/Beamer Roadster/alfa .
A reasonable collection of the best in the class,But the alfa ,as bad as TT driver material.fkin hair dressers car.

Oddly enough that here in the states, Subaru set sales records for their cars sold.
The WRX was one of the leading contributor.

We're still growing fond of the looks here in the States.

I'm sorry but that car looks horrible. It looks like somebody went down to Halford and bought a load of universal spoilers and stuck them on. Nice Wheels! Not! I especially like the lovely Black plastic grills.
