2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi WRX STi AWD 4dr Sedan w/Silver-Painted Wheels (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

If you are looking for a fast 4WD car,
this is yours. I have put aftermarket
parts on it (NOS, Turbochargers, large
Intake Manifolds, Intercoolers etc.)
This car can easily do 100 mph. easily.
It is definitely worth it.


Best Features

300 hp. engine, huge wing, rims, seats


Worst Features

Standard radio

2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi WRX STi AWD 4dr Sedan w/Silver-Painted Wheels (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

This car is stupidly powerful.

I have driven an M3 and seriously
considered getting one. I chose this
car over that one hands down. Overall
an incredible value in spite of the
hideously big wing.

About the wing: both the dealer and
subaru say that it really does serve a
purpose and that if you remove it you
will void your warrantee!!! Can you
believe that?

Some fans of the 80s American muscle
car will remember the v6 turbo charged
Buick GNX. I had one. Except for the
understated syling of the all black
wingless GNX, the STI is far superior
in many ways especially the handling,
manual gearbox, all wheel drive and the
intense eye popping braking.




Best Features

the engine stearing and the all wheel drive


Worst Features

lose the wing, 2 door version, more beefy stabilizers

Review

I don't even own one of these cars. I
went to the dealer, and a younger guy
came out to help me. He then offered to
take it for a test drive!!!!! It was
about a half hour before closing and he
wanted to kill some time. While I was
driving he said to me, "don't be a
girl, give it some gas. this is a
performance car." so that's what I
did. All I can say is WOW. I have a 93
Mustang GT and the STI will destroy it.
When the rpm's hit about 2000, it feels
like you just got shot out of a
cannon. The car is absolutly mind-
blowing. I'm now trying to find things
to sell, so that I can afford an STI.


Best Features

everything. hid lights


Worst Features

wing should be option. gold rims are disgusting on any color except black.

Review

This has been a great car so far, and
I expect it to continue to be so for a
while. The power and acceleration is
excellent, (with the turbo providing a
fantastic rush) as is braking and
handling. Not to mention its 4 doors
and AWD suit my needs perfectly. The
gear box is great and I love
its "center weighted" feel. Also the
little touches like the IC spray, rev
light/beep and adjustable level HID's,
and Driver Controled Center Diff are
all icing on the cake.


Best Features

Really, its the combination of performance and practicality in one package.


Worst Features

For me at least, in everyday driving the handling is more than "precise" enough. So right now, I wouldn't change a thing.
