Subaru Road Car — Performance: good about 240bhp with dump valve and some other toys. Build Quality: ok but they are designed to be fast and functional only Cost of ownership: cheap to buy but expensive to run. Mid 20's MPG. Fun Faxctor: good but cant get the best out of it on normal roads with traffic about. Need to be in a stage really.

Pros

beside power & transmission...haha

Cons

lack of power & poor transmission

55

Subaru Impreza 2.5rs — This is not the WRX. With a 2.5 liter engine, this car gave a lot of torque, transmission is a piece of junk. I still love this car cos I beated NSX & Porsches on the track day haha... I put a body kit, exhaust system, full coiled suspension bought all the way over from Japan, bars, brakes system...

Great to overtake, then let off the gas for the WOOOSH!!!

Cons

Only avoid this car if your a woofter

35

Great Great Great — My Impreza has 'snap your neck off acceleration', it looks awsome and sounds throaty with a deep burble. Always wanted one, it's well worth the wait. Optimax is the way forward!!! I love the WOOOOSH, Im a big kid, lol.

Cons

Performance

Is A Good Average Car — Performance - acceleration is average, brakes pull you up pretty fast, handles really good around corners at speeds above recommened. Build quality - average, since i've had the car i have needed to replace the clutch, drivers front CV joint and a few squeaks here and there. Appearance - sexy curves in my opinion, intrerior is pretty average. Fun factor - is fun to messa round in. was surprised when the all wheel drive drifted around a wet corner.

Really Good Car — The car handles really well, especially in bad weather. I really enjoy the AWD, it takes turns well and is fun to drive. There is a lot of road noise at high speeds. I've had the care for 9 months and am very happy with it.

Awsome — Its slow, maybe 150hp at the wheels, but it brings a smile to my face every time i get in it. Handles like a dream, lots of fun to drive whether its to school, work or taking to the track on the weekend.

Subaru Impreza Turbo 2000 Awd — The performance is excellent 265bhp pretty quick, brakes are ace, 4 wheel drive handles great, build quality is good could be better, apprearance is sweet, day to day running is poor but if you want high mpg car get a diesel Fun factor 10/10
