"I bought my WRX in July '08 with the premium package. I would say I was extremely happy to have a car I would be able to be hands free. The stereo/GPS/bluetooth phone was a major selling point on the car, after the styling and performance. Once I had been driving my car a while and using the nav system, I noticed too often points were not in the system. I was looking at doing the update, but asked Kenwood if they would update a particular street. They said it still would not be updated. I will not be buying the $238 upgrade to the nav system. Too much money for horrible quality. I have thoroughly enjoyed the power and performance of the car, but that stereo (premium) system has left a bad taste in my mouth since buying it. Hope this helps!"
"The 2008 brings to the game new suspension and a re-designed interior and exterior. The new suspension is a little soft but it does allow for a more enjoyable ride if your going on a road trip. The interior is great and everything is well thought out. The exterior no longer screams "LOOK AT ME!" but that is not a bad thing as this car has a lot of performance that you can tap into without realizing it, easily finding yourself going over the speed limit. Great car, my second WRX and I will most definitely buy another one..."
