Poor man's M3

2005 Subaru Impreza WRX STi AWD 4dr Sedan w/Gold-Painted Wheels (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Review
Car is fantastic to drive around town. Great brakes and acceleration. Engine has lots of torque compared to Mitsu EVO that had no bottom end. 6 speed works well and engine settles down at cruise. Glad I got the 2004 as the 2005 interior and rear flares are not an upgrade. Only the console and HVAC controls are better over the 2004. So - buy the 2004 if you can find one and take the savings to add a killer stereo. Hope they figure out the code on the engine ship soon so we can reflash for more power.
Favorite Features
Engine and brakes are best. Same performance as BMW M3 for about 40% less. Plus it has 4WD to use in winter.
Suggested Improvements
Make the wing an option for those who want a stealth look. Consider FMIC to allow hood scoop deletion. Consider the flat 6 with a turbo and 400 HP for the next step up.
