Great overall car for the money.

I've driven a lot of cars, this particular one has me hooked on Subarus. In general it has a lot of torque and it puts you in your seat very well. The overall build and design is not bad, other than no forethought on where to put aftermarket gauges (boost, wide band,..) The paint takes a lot of TLC to keep it looking new, not too much but more than most. The suspension is wonderful for normal day to day driving but taking a turn it could be a little better.
Turbo, Seats, Hood Design
Stiffer suspension, more finished paint job, a place to either put aftermarket gauges or include oil pressure boost and wide band considering they will help keep the turbo in check. A little bit more aggressive style wouldn't hurt.
