I'm not gonna lie, I really hate the spoilers on the STis. I really like WRX's more. I like the Spec C that has a WRX spoiler on an STi.

Subaru should stick to making saloon cars as their performance cars, just more menacing in my opinion! A hatchback would be too much like a Civic Type-R!

I like hatches, they're handy for carrying stuff, they look sporty, and they usually don't add much weight. But that new STI hatch is ugly as sin.

And why the hell does every new car have to have twin exhaust???? I mean....Hyundai SUV's with twin exhausts look hideous. And so does this STI. One is enough.

I guess consumers want dual exhausts. W/out them, they will lag behind competition.

I like dual exhaust, it makes the car look balanced. With a single exhaust on one side to me the car looks un-even.

Ya, I think that way too. Besides, it adds so much horsepower. In some cases it can add as much as one "NOS" sticker.

In some cases maybe even as much as some underglow.

i was just looking at the pic of the Vauxhall Corsa VXR and ive noticed a couple of things.....

Renault first put the diffuser on 'hot hatches', vauxhall/gm have taken that idea,
the side vent in the front wing looks like the same vent found on the mini cooper S, the triagular exhaust, like the one found on the Honda Civic and finally, the whels, which look like the ones first found on the BMW X5!!!
Vauxhall are up to something!!!
