It's the Japs not wanting to get caught out. I work for a Japanese owned company and since the recession was first anounced spending has ceased.

I wouldn't think Subaru are selling many cars at the moment,they would have struggled in a healthy market with that new Impretza :lol: shame though.

Read today that Mitsubishi sales are down 70% so if the others are following the same trend, its hardly surprising.

The WRC died years ago. Hope this finishes it off.

What were they thinking with the new Imprezza :lol:

"Hey design guys, we have a cult car that everyone loves. So, for the 2009 facelift, I want you to totally f**k it up so we dont sell anymore. Is this brief clear enough?"

Mission accomplished.

Evo 1 - Imprezza 0
