WRX sedan has no real world competition
(price related). Performance numbers =
$40-50k German sedans. The "feel" is
exceptional. Like nothing you have
ever driven, unless you have driven
M3s. That is only thing that comes
close in my experience. Everyone
admits, the sheet metal and interior
are not as sexy as the German big
brothers, but you get passed that when
you hit the throttle (in a hurry!).
The car will do anything you can throw
Performance seats, titanium shifter
knob (with short throw), turbo gauge on
wheel, Momo wheel, black interior. Get
the upgraded audio. It is worth it.
Although, standard stereo is very solid
(as factory systems go).
Higher quality plastics inside. That's
it. For $25k you are paying for 0-60
in 5.4 and .89g skidpad. If it had an
Audi interior, it would be the biggest
steal in the history of cars. As it
is, I like the interior. Basic,
performance oriented, and functional.
