2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi AWD 4dr Sedan w/Gold-Painted Wheels (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
This car is a true drivers car. Acceleration, handling and brakes are racecar like. A few basic mods will turn this car into a beast. Will get you in trouble with the law if not careful. You will want to stab the throttle every time you step on the gas. I test drove the 04 M3, 06 Vette and was not impressed. I wanted to jump back in my Suby! No need to spend $50k. DCCD is a plus. Behaves like a RWD when you want it to. You HAVE to launch this car! It takes off like a rocket!
Engine responsiveness, handling, brakes (stops on a dime and looks good), sound, roominess, and muscular look.
Shifter can use some tweaking (3rd&5th tends to grind during at the limit driving,but not that bad. Spoiler can be toned down a bit. Change the factory exhaust, add a boost controller, blow off valve and you have a awesome sounding rocket!
