2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi AWD 4dr Sedan w/Gold-Painted Wheels (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I was fortunate enough to get one of
the first few in Annapolis. I love the
car, it is everything I thought it
would be in terms of performance. I
wanted a car with a huge 'grin factor'
to justify all of the hours spent at
work. And this car provides the grin
factor in spades. I can't really ask
for anything more from the car in terms
of performance, styling, and fun. It
is a sports car so the creature
comforts must be overlooked.
The engine is by far my favorite
feature, the sound is wonderful to
listen to and the turbo spooling up and
down is like a jet engine. The aural
satisfaction is 100%. The short throw
transmission is a blast to drive, and
the wide tires provide tons of grip.
Something could be done to improve the
drink holder design and the trunk
release does not always work
