I don't know about the '09, but they make OEM mesh sport grilles for the '08.... can't imagine that they won't continue.. Mine was a port-installed option..

I'm not comfortable doing that. If the roles were reversed, I'm not sure I would appreciate it.

Understood. I just had to ask.

New to the Subaru world?
02 had a margarine colored WRX
03-04 had a bright yellow WRX

ok so they had a couple of years with yellow... that's the extent of their wild color pallet.

Maybe people weren't buying them?
I took a look at the Audi A4 color pallette and it reminded me of the Foresters - 10 shades of white/black/gray and one single blue and red.
This may be what the public is asking for, I suppose.

Just wondering if anyone has been able to confirm that ESC will be standard on all Imprezas for 2009, as reported by C/D? I've been looking at the 2008s because of the great leases, but really want ESC so I'd be willing to wait for the 2009s.

Premium package Imprezas have stability control in 2008.. You probably knew that.. but, just in case.. FYI..

Odd colors usually have poor resale value. The previous yellow colors were IMHO, uh, less than pretty. While I doubt I'd purchase the copper color myself, in part due to the resale risk, and in part because I prefer other colors, I did find it handsome. I actually prefer the color palette of Subaru's other vehicles. For example, I really like the gray offered on the Tribeca. More importantly, perhaps Subaru should concern themselves more with the quality of their paint.

Yes, I knew that. I'd like a 2.5i with ESC without having to spring for the Premium Package. The base car is just fine for my needs, even the plastic wheel covers look decent; but ESC would be great. Especially if I could get one of those $199/month, 0 down leases on it.
