2006 Subaru Impreza 2.5 i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
I wanted a 4WD or AWD due to the location of my house. So I test drove the BMW 325xi &330xi. Both are really nice cars but way over priced. So I decided to get the Impreza and save the money for the kid's college. This car handles as good as the BMW. It puts a smile on my face every time I drive it. I just want to drive it for no reason because it's so much fun to drive. I put in the aftermarket real xenon headlights; now everything is much brighter at night. The stock headlights are quite bright but it's still a big difference with the xenon. Now, I sneak out at night just to drive on the curvy roads in my town.
Boxer engine, handling, AWD, projector headlights, torque and it looks really good and sporty
5 or 6 speed automatic transmission on the base WRX (my wife can't drive stick). Vanity light. Better stock stereo. Stock stereo is really really cheap. I replaced it with Eclipse stereo and Eclipse speakers. Lower the car about 1 inch so the wheelwell gap is less.
