The Subaru WRX offers awesome acceleration and corners like it's on freaking rails. I'd purchase life insurance and make a will on the day you take delivery - this car inspires almost unrealistic confidence in my driving abilities - it's that solid. Be sure to order the short throw shifter and the upgrades to the speakers and amp.
I like the styling - it's a little unusual. The engine offers mind-bending acceleration.
Some of the options are kind of pricey. I think the short throw shifter should be the standard. Who wouldn't want it?
