2007 Subaru Impreza 2.5 i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
An affordable daily driver for all conditions with decent gas mileage and good performance. The factory ECU map is bad, so I had it Protuned with a Cobb downpipe, Walbro fuel pump, and Prodrive boost control solenoid. (Now there's 295 WHP and 340 WTQ.) I bought some used stock rims for serious snow tires and am ready for anything.
The torque, grip in all conditions, lights, brakes, rims, differentials, transmission, turbo, engine, trunk space, four doors, mp3 port.
My trunk didn't shut right and my dash rattles in cold weather. Have a much safer OEM tune. Lose the wing and blue interior. Offer better interior textures/materials (including leather). Add the option of heated mirrors and a rear wiper. (It's a rain and snow car, isn't it?) Upgrade the stereo.
