Agree, its getting harder for designers to make their car stand out in general profile as design rules (low drag, crumple zones, maximising interior space, etc) are dominant. Every time I see a silver Honda CRV from a few years ago I think "ooh, an SF Forester like mine!"

These were the best looking wrx's

Back when they were low,aggressive, had those huge wings and hood scoops and came in the coupe.
They should try and make the new wrx's look more like this.

^ Indeed. A mate of mine has a 22B, which he uses in tarmac rallies and motorkhanas. I also know another bloke who has one, and he uses it in supersprints and motorkhanas. I don't have a 22B, but I do have a WRX of that vintage in a 4 door shell.

Haha, I love how you chose the 22B

I like the bonnet vents either side of the scoop. I also like the bugeye STi

Aha, he's been found. I knew there were 2 people who liked the look of the bugeye! Just need to find the other one.

Yes Red XS I really liked that shape & was my favorite too

As for the bug eye ..... I think thats when the designer's drugs cut in & they totally lost the plot
