Very, very similar cars.

I can't help but think: Dogde Magnum.
I will admit though, I like the Subi better than the Audi. In fact, I want one. It looks slammed!

That subie front looks very Audi like...and when you consider the cost difference between the S4 and the GT....$20K is a lot for modding.  They really do have it slammed and bling, bling wheels as well.

Charles...you are forever destined to be in the VAG system, so you can hold on to those CH's...NEVER let them go.

My bold pattern on the Subie is 5x100, the only problem is the offset...otherwise I can run CH on her.  My offset is 48, and the CH is 35...so they would maybe stick out too far, but then again...ya never know, hehe.

That's cool! I have to disagree with JR, though. I'd take the S4 over the Subie. The S is just a bit more refined.

The Subarus are definitely making great progress into the euro market.  They are great looking cars.

I like the Audi overall.  However I have to say the effect of the grill on the Audi looks like a huge hole in the front of the car.  Subaru did a better job on that particular part of the front.  The Subaru rear is a littel off with the lights on the tail gate.

my $0.02

In the JDM (japanese domestic market) the clear lights on the tail gate are for back up, and the right side one is the rear fog...it lights up Red LED's when the rear fog is on...for a right hand drive car.  For europe, and the left hand drive, the rear fog is on the left.  For us here in the US, they are both back up lights, but I kinda like how they are integrated into the rear lid, looks better on silver and white than it does on the darker colors, like having clear corners/side markers or something like that.

I think there is a design competition involving telemetry and the use of drugs.  Everything looks the same...

Both are nice, but I like the slightly sleeker and more aggresive look of the Subie.

I like the bruttish and chopped styling of the Magnum, but I'd prefer the trimmings of the 300c (the front end and interior especially).  The 300c Touring (wagon) is strangely only available in Europe, which would be my pick.

I really like the 300c sedan version when it was first released but now the gangster look is starting to look tired to me.

300c SRT8 Touring would be some awesome wagon if CHrysler ever makes it!

All this talk of Chysler (Land Cruiser post as well)...I just have to say I saw a 300m DUMPED on at least 20" Chrome Monoblocks....SIC!
