Finally drove a new, with 6 miles on it, pearl white 2010 WRX HB equipped with the SPT shortshifter and exhaust. Within a few minutes I knew this was the car for me. Excellent low end power, handling and road feel. Plus it has AWD. Finally found a replacement for my long gone '04 R32.
Potent engine, great throttle response, communicative steering, SPT shortshifter and exhaust system, HB versatility.
For cosmetic reasons, lightweight STI 18 inch BBS style wheels would look nice on the car.
