I bought this car thinking "this is
it!". I admit it is a fun and fast car.
But I've found it had a lot of little
problems. The steering isn't always
there to help you with agressive turns,
shifting can be missed when pushed a
bit more agressively and it is already
showing signs of wear... which makes me
wander how reliable it will be as years
pile up. My friend bought and
Evolution, I recently got a chance to
drive it... and inmediately I realized
my mistake. The Evo is much more
refined in all aspects and has a better
steering feel. I think my WRX is a
great car, but I think the EVO will
always be more refined... even when the
290Hp STi comes out.
Impressive acceleration and nice
Less engine noise: this is typical from
Subaru engines, I know, but it makes
you wander if those lifters and valves
will hold up in time.
A better defined shifter: otherwise
missing gears when driving agressively
is a given.
More refinement overall.
