2006 Subaru Impreza WRX TR 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Ignore all the reviews for the car and look at it like this. You can get these for 23K out the door if you're good. It's got the STI 2.5 liter in it. Ebay TurboBack exhaust $500, STi Intercooler $300, Cobb Accessport (ECU) $650, STI Turbo Ebay ($400), you now have 280 horsepower to the wheels and will smoke stock STI's and EVO's and get the same gas mileage, for oh, say less then two grand, bringing the total price to $25 grand and you have STI speed ...WOW. $25K is still lower then sticker on a base WRX ... Nuff said, this car has more potential then the older WRX's and any other car out there in the same price bracket, period. :)

Best Features

Engine. That's about it; the interior seats stinks, buy some used STI seats and you'll be happy. VERY quiet ride as well. No road noise what so ever.

Worst Features

LOWER THE CAR, the stock suspension stinks, it has way to much body roll and makes you feel uneasy. Also the brakes need improvement, Just change to stainless steel lines and new pads and you'll have equal breaking performance with an STI. for $400. :)
