Not just a WRX on steroids

Vehicle2005 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI've driven and owned a variety of
Subaru cars for the last ten years. My
previous car being a 2002 WRX which
I've had for over three years. So when
I first got to test drive the STi, I
just couldn't believe the difference
in performance, especially in
cornering speed and suspension
dynamics. The 6MT transmission (with
factory installed short shifter) is
the best manual transmission Subaru
has to offer by far.
NVH? I call that communication with
the road. It's funny, my 2005 STi has
the EXACT same rattles as my 2002 WRX.
I wouldn't have it any other way.
Best FeaturesDriver controlled center differential, shift light tachometer, HID headlights.
Worst FeaturesMy only complaints are aesthetic and are shared by many others in my demographic (30 year old professional): the huge scoop and wing and the gaudily colored interior.
