2007 Subaru Impreza 2.5 i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
I have owned this vehicle for less than a year and absolutely love it. To appreciate this vehicle you must be passionate about performance and less concerned about comfort, luxury or appearance. The sti is extremely quick right out of the box. I previously owned a 350z for 4 years and must admit it was a great car but the sti outperforms it in all areas except for 100+ mph (the 350z just seemed more hunkered down to the road and stable at high speed). The power in the sti is ferocious, coming on at 4000 rpm's (which is when the turbo kicks in) and then it's hold on for the ride. The power is such that I've actually missed second gear because of being thrown back into the seat (hand slipping).
Torque, seats, brembo brakes, acceleration.
Vehicle should come from the factory already tuned to the cobb ecu specifications. This can give you up to an additional 50 hp and 40 lbs torque all the while saving gas. All season performance tires, stock from the factory should be standard. Wing a little smaller please (I'm 32 not 17).
