    Awd + Boost = Happy — love it, awd has its us and downs, for the most part i love it, looks sick i dropped it, and it handles like crazy, having an engine built, so should be a lot of fun, cant wait. ha ha

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

    Pros: boost

    Cons: awd gets boring, not for long though

    Wrx — great low end torque, good acceleration from stock turbo, interior is very nice for stock and built for race- styled comfort, appearance is unique, gas mileage is good and maintenance is low until you start modifying it, very fun to drive this all wheel drive turbo vehicle.

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

    Pros: AWD / TURBO / LOOKS

    Cons: Costly maintenance once heavily modified

    Subaru Wrx Wagon — Has under-steer but good acceleration. Looks good, storage not as abundant as previously thought. Gas mileage is not as good as i hoped Fun to drive. I would recommend this car to anyone who wants to buy this car. Unless they want something to drift then no.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good acceleration,

    Cons: under-steer

    If You Can Find One Buy It. Make Sure It's An '05 To '07 And Concentrate On Beefing Up That Tranny — I really miss this car. I should have kept it. There was nothing wrong with it except for the transmission and I should have just replaced it. This car took anything you threw at it and it would take even more with a swapped six speed or PPG gears. This car was my favorite out of all the cars I've owned and if I could get mine back I would take it in a heartbeat.

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

    Pros: Car has a lot of potential for what ever you use it for whether it would be track, rally, or just getting your groceries. It looked great, it drove great, it got excellent gas mileage

    Cons: Transmission

    A Great All-round Performance Car At A Bargain Price! — This car is a real bargain at half the price of an STi (at least where I live), its performance is very much in the same league when fitted with PPP - Prodrive Performance Package which added another 40hp or so to the basic 220hp stock engine. Plenty of torque is available from 2,500rpm. If driven sensibly, it will return respectable mileage. Suspension needs work as OEM dampers can be bouncy on many occasions, but fear not as plenty of aftermarket parts are available.

    Pros: Exceptional power and fuel economy.

    Cons: Rally-car look isn't for everyone.  Weak brakes.

    Great Performance For The Money And Awd Is Icing On The Cake. — Performance of this car is amazing with a few simple mods. Build quality is very good but the light weight of all the parts and the minimal noise reduction leads to some fun rattles. Although most won't agree i love how the car looks... especially after a front lip and a slight drop. Gas mileage is good considering the performance and AWD of the car. I would consider this car on the lever of a Lotus in the fun to drive factor (after some light modding) because of how light and responsive they are. The car is extremely "raw".

    Pros: Performance, modding capabiltiy, "rawness" of the car (no bells and whistles just business)

    Cons: Not the greatest looking car to many.

    Subaru Wrx — Awsome seed quick off the mark the handling is how you expect a subaru to handle like a grey hound round a track, the build quality was absolutly solid all the bumps and speed yet still no creeks, with the carbon world rally spoiler on the back it looked the danglies, best car I've had and i would have another one any day.

    Pros: The hole lot

    Cons: Silly corsa's and renaults think they are faster LMFAO

    05 Subaru Impreza Wrx Club Spec 8 — I bought the car new. Is a very willing performer in most conditions, though can be a bit of a princess when it comes to different brands of fuel or cold weather. If you enjoy driving and like to have some fun but need a car that is still easy to drive then there is not much out there that will beat this in its original condition. And it looks good too. Can be pricey to run and maintain.

    Pros: Performance, handling, styling

    Cons: Running costs especially servicing, tyres and insurance
