2005 Subaru Impreza WRX STi AWD 4dr Sedan w/Silver-Painted Wheels (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Tons of fun to drive. It lives up to
its billing - a true modern-day heir to
the pony-car tradition. I would not
trade this in for a Porsche Boxster
even if they were the same price!
300 hp, 300 ft-lb; need I say more?
The 6-speed is also good, though I
would prefer sequential. Perfect car
for a single guy who wants to have some
fun - but with 4 doors so I won't have
to get rid of it if I do decide to
start a family.
Unfortunately, the salesperson treated
me with what I would almost call
contempt. The gigantic rear wing is a
cop magnet (I haven't been ticketed,
but they follow me around). Had weird
problem with steering rack, but service
guys were very helpful (stark contrast
with the sales staff!)
