2006 Subaru Impreza WRX STI 4dr Sedan AWD w/Gold-Painted Wheels (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Noisy, but nothing competes for the money. I am early for work now, because driving this car is so much fun! It's as comfortable (more so actually) on gravel as it is on the highway. Wish list ... variable suspension, and a bit more sound protection (liquid filled engine mounts do help) for longer trips.
Pure acceleration, supportive seats, excellent instrument gauges ... you don't have to put it in the garage when the snow flies! All the Vettes, GTO's, Mustangs, all have to hibernate ... this car rocks!
Short throw shifter, rally flaps, improved sound protection, adjustable suspension.
