2002 Subaru Impreza WRX AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

This car is simply the greatest gift to driving ever. It is a perfect balance between daily driving functionality and gutwrenching high performance (and when the pedal meets the metal and the turbo fully spools you do feel your gut wrench). So much emphasis has been put on the performance (and rightfully so) that other aspects of the car have been shadowed out. The shape and layout of the dashboard is more remeniscent of a de-trimmed Porsche boxter than of a Japanese four door. The exterior is beautiful: aggressive yet not overstated; the way a true rally car is supposed to look.. with performance and handling to match.

Best Features

Steering column mounted boost gauge (a definate must-have option). In the end I racked up $28,000 with virtually every dealer installed "showroom" option sans body-kit and BBS wheels, but I can honestly say it was worth every penny.

Worst Features

It'd be nice if the WRC Rally Blue paint came in a metal flake as the silver does. Triptronic Trans would also be worth it.
