Very Fast - Fun - Sure To Get Points On Your Licence! — Super fast and so much fun around bends with the AWD. Brakes superb! Excellent build quality like you would expect from a Subaru! Interior a little basic. Had it in black with the gold fleck and gold alloys... looked amazing on a sunny day. Cost of ownership > loves fuel and servicing in more expensive than a Boxter... But what a fun car to drive on those back country roads!

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

Pros: Raw speed

Cons: Traffic police - filling stations

Wrc! — Performance is top notch, can keep up with anything on the road. Interior is a bit sparse, but it's a rally car! Costs quite a bit to maintain, only because I take it to the dealership for maintenance. Definitely the most fun car to drive under $60k!

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

Pros: 2003 WRC

Cons: NVH

Great Deal For Those With A Sense Of Fun — It is definitely quick. And it is super reliable. It has an indomitable character. It encourages you to be naughty but ti really is fun. Noisy and harsh but at least you know you're alive Doesn't like to do less than about 80.

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

Pros: Performance

Cons: If you have no pulse

2004 Subaru Impreza Wrx Sti —

For the money you get a fairly competent that's a joy to drive on the street and the track, on road or off road. As far as performance is concerned you are given a very solid foundation to build from and tailor to your needs. In stock form it isn't blisteringly fast but it is quick. Driving this car to it's max potential is a little unnerving at first, if you enter corners like you would traditionally in a RWD car you will find it has heaps of understeer. This is where you begin to trust in the chassis and start pushing harder and harder into the corners to the limit that once you lift off the throttle the rear begins to step out. At this point you can roll back into the throttle maintaining this pitched out balance. If you're looking for creature comforts, it will not be found here. This car is a no frills single purpose car, you have two cup holders a fairly sparten interior that most find hideous in the factory blue color. From the exterior standpoint it is again a case of love it or hate it. This car screams look at me and that isn't always in a good way, because the cops will definitely look at you. Cost of the car can sky rocket in a hurry. If you are inexperienced at driving a manual I would find a beater car to learn on, with a clutch for parts a lone in the $800 range most would prefer to not replace it on a regualr basis. Another area is the brakes, they are huge and with that comes a huge cust to replace them. You will be looking in the neighborhood of $1000 to replace all four corners. The third area is modifications. In and of it themselves they can be expensive, but if you don't know what you are doing and go about things all willy nilly you will find yourself down the road with an engine that's more useful as a boat anchor than the propulsion for your vehicle. Overall this car is a blast to own and push to its limits. But the caveat to this is if you want to play you better be ready to pay.

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

Pros: Solid all-around performance, Turbo, AWD, Manual

Cons: Seats, Cost to properly maintain

One Of The Best Cars Of It's Generation. — Takes off like a bullet, feels like the car is trying to run away from its driver sometimes. Full-time AWD means I can roll anytime I want. Day, night, rain, sleet, snow, ice, and dead animals. Car is extremely responsive to modification. Turbo is perfect for the engine, spools up quick and keeps pulling towards redline.

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

Pros: If you live for curves, this ride is for you.

Cons: You're a Mitsu punk
