I test drove the '08 Saab Aero, Volvo C70, Accord, WRX and a few others and the Legacy blew them away in every way. Performance, handling, style and pricing. I've had it for about a month and recently had the cold air intake, heat shield and Cat-back system installed. With this system, this little engine actually sounds like a real muscle car. It is a true sleeper that I've surprised many a driver with already!! I feel like I stold the car getting it for 30k. Well worth the investment.
Power and handling. This thing takes off and sounds like a jet with thunder (3" cat-backs) in the background.
Bigger front scoop and a bit quicker response when mashing the gas.
