Fast, reliable, excellent utility. I can haul snowboards to the mountains and take it to a track day and still have a blast. Easily customized. Reprogram the ECU for an easy ~25hp bump. Driveability improves as boost comes on sooner. Short shifter kit also suggested. I only get 22mpg on mixed commute.
Handling, great power, AWD, cheap price, easy to maintain. Sleeper car. Cops don't notice wagons. Seats are great. Reasonable fuel economy.
Improve shifter feel, Add sunroof option for wagons, add variable valve timing from legacy to the 2.0L turbo. make an STi version of the wagon. Better stock stereo or a delete option.
