    Light, Turbo, Awd..! — Best car I've owned so far. I am very impressed with the reliability with stage 2 mods. Lots of potential. Not quit a traditional looking sports car, which has it's ups and downs.

    Pros: Reliable. Fairly quick. Handles great in any condition. Cult following. Great community.

    Cons: Sits high. Expensive service. Not much of a head turner.

    Inexpensive Fun — It is a great car. I love it. It is inexpensive fun. Pretty decent build. I have one recommendation to all looking to get one; don't buy one that has modifications! Buy one completely stock and modify it yourself!

    Pros: Acceleration, braking power, handling.

    Cons: Brake warpage

    2002 Wrx — Bought in june 2007 in exchange of the Mini. All stock execpt a catless up-pipe and tinted windows. Not as fast as the 323GTX but nice car in general. Handling is suprisingly good. Very good in snow. Will probably be stage 2 soon.

    Pros: Handling, nice winter car

    Cons: Worst tranny ratios ever.

    It's A Wrx. Say No More. — The "bug eye" was Subarus first foray into the world of cutting edge design, and the WRX's first attempt to "grow up". The MY01 brought a stiffer chassis and improved interior features, but due to the polarising design and slightly worse acceleration times, it was poorly received by many fans. The MY02 as seen here received improved gear ratios and a suretrac rear LSD to address these issues, but in reality the issues hardly needed addressing anyway. The MY02 WRX is a seriously quick car, especially point-to-point on a twisty mountain road. All wheel drive traction gives it the edge off the line, out of corners, and everywhere if it's wet, and makes up for any lack lustre handling issues.

    Pros: All wheel drive, stiff tarmac tuned suspension for carving up winding roads, nice firm bolstered seats, turbo rush

    Cons: stiff suspension and firm seats not so comfortable day to day.  Suspension very nervous on rough roads.  Turbo doesn't come on song until around 3000rpm.

    Power, Control, And Unique Beauty — Great accel. Car wants to be driven well over 3,000 rpm! This vehicle was designed for rally so it's great in mud and snow. Has alot of miles on it but haven't had any mechanical problems thusfar.

    Pros: Fast and great handling.

    Cons: Recommended premium gas, MobileOne oil=$$

    Fast And Practical, But It Understeered Like Crazy — Upsized the rear anti-sway bar, installed 17 " rims, H&R Springs, and a Intake from Home Depot. Clutch uptake a bit stiff, and fuel economy not too great, especially when requiring premium.

    Pros: Safe, Fast, Fun

    Cons: Expensive to run

    Fun, Fast, Friendly — Loads of fun to drive regardless of weather. Does alright for the miles per gallon. If you ever so happen to have to sleep in your car, the front seats are decently comfortable if put down flat. Would buy again.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Everything, power, handling

    Cons: hard to remove spark plugs due to boxer engine

    My Little Blue Wagon — Fast, fun, practical and very, very blue! Absolutely no problems, handles great, and the best WRX seats of all; they fit perfectly. Mileage could be much better, but then again, with some mods, I'm up to 265 hp. It also could use more soundproofing. I still love this car for its all-around joy factor.

    Pros: Fast and practical

    Cons: mileage could be higher
