2005 Subaru Impreza WRX STi AWD 4dr Sedan w/Gold-Painted Wheels (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
This car is the total package. It outperforms most sports cars on the market, reliable, gets decent gas mileage, AND will carry 4 average adults comfortably. This car was my dream car prior to the US getting it and it has not let me down. The gas mileage averages about 25-26 on the highway (no a/c on). To push this car to it's limits is VERY difficult to do because the limits of the driver come WAY before. Completely stock, this car is ready for the track (some safety mods -- better brake pads, lines, and fluid would help). Overall, I am very pleased with this car and would recommend it to anyone wanting a REAL sports car that is livable without paying big bucks.
AWD, turbocharged, braking, HIDS, wheels, and fun-to-drive factor. The interior is styled simple, but nice. It draws attention from those that know and respect the performance. Reliable.
Cheap paint that chips easily on plastic body panels (front and side skirts),
