2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi AWD 4dr Sedan w/Gold-Painted Wheels (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

My WRX STi is very fun to drive and the all wheel drive sticks you to the road. I was a little disappointed with the interior design. 300hp is of course rated at flywheel and not at wheels. Dyno revealed 12% drop to 264hp, which is still impressive, but a 6 cylinder would have done better for reliability and would be much smoother. The old M3s put out 192hp from a non-turbo 4 cylinder and that engine was not worth the pretty penny, but they were more fuel efficient. Don't do this to a 4 cylinder. Start with a 6 cylinder! Weight distribution could use tweaking and why is this a 6-speed? That's what you get for hiking up the hp. Engine can't handle the power!

Best Features

The Rally Heritage is very appealing. I wish more manufacturers would offer their Rally Car versions to the mainstream. The blue provides a very good looking car.

Worst Features

Remove/reduce wing-more problems w/sidewinds than it helps. Rear visibility-LOL! Fix oil leaks! Audio nonexistent. Gas mileage lousy for 4 cylinders (Uncle’s Z06 better mileage&POWER) Treadwear worse than expected. Close to redline for max hp. Should have saved for a new Vette :(
