The Best Econo Box Sports Car Ever Made! — This car is amazing. I love everything about it except for the spoiler blocking the rear view. It's got a great suspension setup although a little harsh for a daily driver and it's very functional with large trunk, four doors and AWD for the winter. It can be easily modified to super car performance specs and gets 20+ mpg. I sold this one but plan on buying a white 05 in a year or so minus the boy racer wing.

Pros

Fast, gets attention, handled awesome!  Plenty of room for friends.  

Cons

You were lucky if you could get more than 180 miles on a full tank of gas.  Premium only gas, cops follow you everywhere you go.

Awesome Car For The Money — Sweet car. Stock it would run the 1/4 mile at 13 flat, with a little added power like mine had, it would easily run low 12's. I even beat a Ferrari with this car on M-59. Turbo, all wheel drive car which can beat most of the cars on the road.

AWD, S-AYC, ACD, and S-ABS.

Cons

Insurance, initial cost

Hard To Beat The Performance For The Price... — ...a sedan that cuts 60' times in 1.5 seconds, 60mph in 3.6, and the 1/4mile in just over 11 seconds. It does this, and gets 25 mpg. I drove a friend's Evo 7 GSR and it's wicked fast at 25psi... and it'll walk down a Viper or a Corvette at a road course. All for less than $40k!

Pros

Superfast 0-60 4.7 sec, 1/4 mile 13.5 sec.  
Car handled like a go cart.  Easy to mod the engine because of the turbo.  
It would stop on a dime.

Cons

After you've driven with that much power you can't go back...so hard...Brakes would have been crazy expensive to replace.  Car made me crazy fast everywhere I went and want to race every fixed up car near me.  Apparently this car does not like GMR (canyon driving).  Has a tendency to flip over if you drive too fast..trust me i know..haha.  well..not ha ha.  I still want another one.

Rally Car For The Street — Greatest bang for the buck. If you dont know what this is you're not a gearhead. I miss the feel of boost hitting you in the back and letting off the gas at 130 knowing you could have easily gone over 150. Nuts...In my opinion way better car than an STi. haha. sorry to all those subaru guys. If you love boost you'll love this car. If you want to buy a used one, the seller is lying when he says, "I never modded it or raced it". Straight up liar.

Fantastic Performance For The Money — Great performance, grip and handling. Rare. Good value. Expensive to run and maintain. Thirsty. Interior is nothing special.
