The aftermarket potential of the new 2008 Impreza is likely to equal that of its predecessors, and one Subaru of America employee is getting into the game early. Sporting a set of bronze Grams Light 57Fs, held on by blue anodized lug nuts and equipped with the Duracon shift knob found on the SpecC RA-R, this black five-door model was spotted by a camera phone-wielding member of the NASIOC community in New Jersey.

Aside from the aforementioned exterior and interior bits, the new front-end has dispatched the chrome grille surround with a color-matched piece, while the right side of the instrument cluster looks to be sporting either a shift light or a remote mounted boost gauge.

Questions remain about what this particular Impreza, that hasn't even begun production, is doing sporting some aftermarket gear. Is it a test mule for SOA or for a parts manufacturer? Should we expect a similarly modded version at SEMA this year? We're looking forward to an answer to all these questions and more. Hopefully soon.

Thanks for the tip, Mike!
