I have a '05 WRX in World Rally Blue with 16 inch rims and this car has been so much fun. 13,000 miles on her now and no problems. All wheel drive really helped when a friend and I were caught in a snow blizzard. We never needed chains but I saw that mostly everyone else did; even those big full size and 1 ton trucks need chains on and in 4 wheel drive.
6 disc CD changer and the all wheel drive. Turbo is so much fun and the suspension can really handle some twisty roads.
Rear brakes get hot just after a few laps around the race track but car is always controllable.
