I used to drive a 2003 Nissan SER SpecV and the WRX is better in every aspect. Fantastic car to modify. The possibilities are endless. Love the aftermarket/car club atmosphere surrounding this car. Not a better deal for $23k....shoulda bought an STi.
Love the seats, optional dimmed and compass rear-view mirror. Shifter in a great position. Ample leg room (I'm 6'-1"). Fantastic power and torque out of the 2.0L "boxer."
Ugly "shark fin" rear spoiler. Install better factory tires. The Potenzas stink...even in snow. Change the 1st gear ratio to run longer. Too much body roll.
