The fun of the Suby STi
By Raszaron on
2007 Subaru Impreza 2.5 i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
While I have only owned this car for a month, I can tell a lot about the car! I have owned many a car to include 92 30000GT VR4, 01 Mustang GT and 03 Tiburon GT to name a few. Performance wise the STi is a great car! Of course it is not going to be the luxury comfort like a BMW, but it is not made for that market. I test drove an EVO IX and the STi, and while off the showroom floor the Evo is faster/quicker, the STi is overall a better car quality wise. The aftermarket is well suited for either of these saloons.
AWD, DCCD, HIDs, aftermarket availability, boxer rumble, Subaru support, uniqueness, iPod aux port, interior, Brembo brakes, powerful sedan, fuel economy for a 300 hp car (I am currently ranging between 20-25.5 mpg).
O7 hesitation during spool up (easy fix with the Cobb Access Port), shifter should already be STi short shifter without it being an additional $300.
