From the front, it looks like the damage would almost buff out. Then you see the shot of the back. Significant restyling has taken place on this particular brandy-new STI, and we're not talking about the new duds Fuji whipped up. At least now we know what the primo donor cars will look like at the pick-a-part. While it's an upsetting thing for us internet pikers to gaze upon, we can only imagine the owner's anguish. That said, since most of the damage is in the rear, we're guessing that someone else is at fault for the total loss of this Subie. So, while this particular STI is likely headed for a dismemberment, the owner is likely tooling around in a replacement. So, what do you think the combined cost of this lovely hunk of low-miles (282km) scrap plus a shipping container would be?

Thanks for the tip, Marc!

      If you guys are really fascinated with ugly cars, here's a link; http://www.honda.com/ - they have a little, torque-free compact that looks like a minivan, a convertible made out of bin parts, another van called the Excrement and another compact that looks like a wedge of cheese. Enjoy!

        What convertible made out of bin parts? You mean the one that doesn't share a chassis or hardly anything else with any other honda, the S2000 ? The Excrement, oh you mean the nicets van you can buy? Gotcha...

      Ouch!

      I think it's much worse when someone else takes out your ride. At least if you do it yourself, you know why and you [might] take responsibility for it.

      I spent 2 years turning my new SAAB 93 into how I wanted it (wheels, body kit, suspension, etc). I had it exactly perfect. Then, one night while stopped at a red light waiting to make a left turn, a DUI driver in a Dodge Ram decided it was a good idea to drive in the middle of both lanes at 60MPH (25MPH zone). I don't think the hit would have been as bad had he struck the back of the car and not the corner. The car was fixed, but never the same. Got ride of it 5 months later.

      Crashed and improved

      I find the supercar crash reports to be a little unnecessary as it is. Now we're getting reports about a crashed Impreza? Come on!

      The Impreza WRX STI is an alright car, but it's not unattainable. I've spent quite a bit of time driving one, and it's a lot of fun, but it's no supercar. It's just a regular car. It's a car that average people can afford and average people will crash. It happens.

        Um, I think the reason it warrants a posting is because it's been out for just over a month.

      Wrecks are always sad. As long as no one got hurt, then oh well. It's just a nasty little Subaru anyways.

      I need to know what hospitle the dvier is staying,I want talk to him about buying this car.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Not that it would have been tough before, but it should be a lot easier to parallel park the car into tighter spots now...
      • 7 Years Ago
      I'd salvage a lot of those goodies that can only be found in an STi and install it in something else!
      • 7 Years Ago
      are those winter tires on the car?
        • 7 Years Ago
        Sure look like snow tires and non-stock wheels to me.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Wow, talk about your crumple zones.
