Little Tank — Another fun car. Our first Subaru and the reason to get another. Just a joy to drive and fun on gravel or snow. Can't say enough for their cars. Safe and fun! Have had it now for about 5 years and just do oil changes. and routine repairs. Has a K&N filter and a "gel mat" battery to make it better in the cold winter. Great on the snow and out away from the city. Always starts and no big troubles..

99 2.5 Rs Frankenstein — its built for rally other than the motor but the stock 2.5 with crawford ecu, twin filtered intake and miss matched headers back exhust does the job nice. it handles on any surface better than any other car ive ever drivin. the full wide body kit adds a extremly aggresive look to the car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Really amazing sports saloon!

Cons

fuel consumption

25

Monster Sports Saloon — The car was equiped with a 2.2L flat 4 engine. It threw out something like 440 bhp on the bench test. I did not modify it, I was already boosted by the previous owner. The engine was swapped for a 2.2L turbo. low compression pistons, new suspensions, New spoiler, wider track, new STI butcket seats. I never maxed out the car but it had lots of low to mid end torque! The most awesome thing, just like in other subaru, was the engine sound.

Amazing Creation — I like that it has the all wheel drive and the manual transmission, sadly i just wish it was turbo charged so that it would have more power, but the overall performance and handling of the vehicle is great! I love it!

Great Power For Daily Driver And Grips The Ground No Matter What Terrain. — My first car. Plenty of torque in the lower range, but lacks power after 3rd gear. The AWD helps more than anything else. It provides outstanding grip no matter what surface you are on so long as you know how to compensate for the difference in control. i have upgraded the suspension and most bolt ons for my Subie and it is loved by most who drive it even if they have high horsepowered cars. I have owned it for 6.5 years and have only needed to replace the tranny and clutch due to previous owner, and have totaled it in late 2008 when i hit a deer. It is still driving strong and I plan on rebuilding the engine soon with new internal upgrades.
