Met Petter Solberg last night at 06 STI unveiling

Subaru Factory Rally Driver Petter Solberg was at a unveiling of the 06 Subaru STI last night in South NJ..

He came out spoke with everyone, told us about the R&D that went into the new 06 model and later went inside to sign autographs and take pictures with us..

Petter in person, was great, down to earth, and just plain awesome to meet..

I'll post some pics tonight if anyone wants to see.. Hey its still a flat four

Figured I'd pass on to you all..

Now if Petter can just endge out Mr Loeb, then I would be happy..

Schweet !

Yeah, post the pics.
So how is the '06 in person ? Do you like the Alfa Romeo grill ?

Was a great time.. and as far as the 06.. not to bad in person..

I personally see potential with the new front.. add a lip, and some fog lights and it may look ok.. what I don't like is the rear.. the lights are odd, and there is this huge subaru emblem on the back.. which I am not to crazy about.. again just small cosmetic tweaking..

Not sure if you venture to the other forums.. but I will post some pics, some time this weekend, but for now chech out NASIOC.. tri-state forum..

Here are a few links that cover both your questions..

That's awesome! I'm just a little confused as to why this is the first time I've seen the front of the Impreza redone! I read EVERY car mag, including the ones from Europe, and those are the first pics I've seen.

Petter is awesome, I'm jealous you got to meet him. If I was to pick one WRC driver to meet, it would be him.
