Re: Subaru Impreza WRX

I think it's cool, at least the 2002 version was. Barely got it out of 2nd gear and I was flying down the road (loads of power). Too much for me, I don't want speeding tickets.

Re: Subaru Impreza WRX

it's cool yeah... not supercool though imo... the looks let it down..
if it had all that power and looked a heap better it'd be sub-z in my book

Re: Subaru Impreza WRX

TBH, although a great car to drive I hear, it just looks too chavvy: uncool.

I've not driven one myself, but I've been told that there's nothing to give you "Road God Complex" like a scooby wrx

Fast? Yes. But nowadays it has an image problem. Uncool.

Cool, but not sub zero.

In terms of 'real world' driving, as fast as anything, including supercars

Fantastic cars at full chat but around town you might as well be sitting in a Hyundai Accent.

Re: Subaru Impreza WRX

Technically superb but that doesn't count for much in cool terms.

Uncool, and will only get worse with time.

The best these cars can hope for in image terms is to be considered kitsch in an ironic retro sort of way in around twenty years.

Re: Subaru Impreza WRX

An original one not done up like a rally reject with a dinner plate sized zorst was cool....unfortunately it has descended to uncool due to it's unfortunate following.....shame really, cause I always preferred them to the Evos.

Cool, but only just. Chavvy ones look terrible.

Impressive piece of machinery.

Hideous reputation due to the group that adopted it.

Cool, just barely.

Re: Subaru Impreza WRX

Massively uncool. These have a huge image problem in Australia: if you see one on the road you can be assured it's driven by a ******/joyrider/ramraider.

They're capable, exciting and incredible value, but not brilliant cars to drive.
