2004 Sti — wish it had a sunroof. the car handles very very well. Especially with upgraded coilovers. has plenty of power on tap to get you around traffic. Not a good first car for teenagers but more for older experienced drivers yea .

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

Great Performance For The Dollar — I would recommend this car to anyone who loves driving. It has tremendous power and braking. In the winter there is nothing better than having no worries no matter what is thrown at you. The fuel mileage is not bad either for the 300hp engine.

Absolutely Fantastic. — It's a work in progress, don't think I will ever actually bring myself to put her up for sale. She'll be in the family for a long time! The reliability is great, especially with out built motors! I couldn't ask for a better vehicle!

Pros

Fantastic performance but drives very well as daily driver.  Timeless looks.  Great reliability and has held up incredibly.  I regularly have people ask if its new even though it is nearly 10 years old!

Cons

Had to replace turbo after 8 years due to a "known" tech issue.  Was frustrated to not know of issue in advance so it could have been prevented.  Other than that, no cons!

Perfect All Around Car! — I've never owned a car more than 2 or 3 years before this one. This car has just been so good all around it's been a keeper. It has amazing handling regardless of weather. Excellent performance while still able to transport a family.

Aggressive And Full Of Charecter — This car is an amazing vehicle. I have only just driven it back from buying it but I still already love it. It has so much personality and so much power but it also just eats up the miles on a long drive. I will update this the longer I own this car

acceleration is fantastic.  6spd gearbox makes it hard to be in the wrong gear

Cons

Hated the wing

Four Doors, A Usable Trunk And Goes Like Stink. What More Do You Want — most fun to drive car I have ever owned. acceleration is almost supercar fast (with a little tuning), handling is fantastic. The style of the first generation is way too over the top, but very easy to overlook considering all the other attributes.
