I test drove 05 type-S two days
ago and was really surprised... My
current car is 04 WRX and no, type-S
doesnt have that raw torque and power
of my rex BUT it is VERY quik ( 0-60
in 6.5 seconds) and for that price its
defenly great choice.
The car also has great potential
for automarket parts and handles like
a real sports car from Japan.
Also it is a beauty from the outside
and has absolutely great interior. 6
speed tranny is top-notch and here
comes an advice for all customers who
had problems with that transmission:
let it warm up a bit and there will be
i-Vtech sounds incredible.
Leather interior, i-Vtech, handling,
6spd tranny, headlights (remind me of
1999-2001 Honda Si) and of course
With these features, type-S would
dominate its class:
1) All Wheel Drive
2) At least 180 lb of torque
And, of course, price with those
features should be under $25000
