I've had the Subaru 2006 WRX for 3000 miles. It's much faster then expressed via various web sites. Not much on the road can touch it. Easy handling. Kinda' drives itself. Power, handling, easy to control the car, decent mileage and just OH so much fun to drive. I've driven Mustangs and other power cars, only thing better then the WRX is the WRX STi!
Acceleration, handling and feeling of being able to control the car as easy as you control yourself! It is just pure FUN.
Give the WRX the same performance as the STi. Perhaps restyle. But its unique looks make it truly different.
