Even Your Grandma Can Rally Race In This — solid car, interior is well designed, all around performance

Pros: exhaust burble, you feel like a rally racer while driving, rediculous traction

Cons: price, and hard to find one that has low miles

Best Car Ive Ever Owned... Quality And Stylin Is Rediculously Amazing — it has enough power out of the box for an awesome daily driver, handles like a dream and stops on a dime. for those who enjoy pushing their vehicles to the limits, you can definately add aftermarket modifications to make this car rediculously fast and torquey.

Pros: enough power out of the box for a fun daily driver, too many pros to list

Cons: car parts are expensive lol... but totally worth it in the end

2005 Sti — 2.5 literboxer engine pumps out 300hp. it's science. Supercar handling, durable. nice interior easy to modify. easy incrase 45hp just by working with exhaust.

Pros: awd, loud, fast, super car handling, brembo break, 4way adjustable headlight angle, boxer engine--> lower center of gravity, lower insurance for sport car, low cost of ownership than any other sport car, easy to enhance the power, easy add accessories such as strut bars, and suspension kits, downpipe, exhause, short throw, to gain more power.

Cons: loud, stiff, 2hrs driving stuck in the traffic  and if it's uphill (if you know what i mean)

Wow... — A few friends of mine own these. Absolutely insane amounts of power, great handling, love the AWD. Got to drive a Stage 2... almost too fast.

Pros: Rip-your-face-off acceleration, Rip-your-arms-off handling.

Cons: $$$

Pretty Utilitarian. It's Purpose Built But It Serves That Purpose Extremely Well. — This car is extremely fun but it's definitely built for speed and handling first and comfort second. the seats aren't particularly comfortable or supportive, which is too bad, and the ride is stiff, which i actually like, but that's not something that everyone can live with. the styling is also extremely aggressive, with that big ole boy-racer wing. it's not particularly useful up until about 80 mph, but it does serve a purpose. all things equal, the car does what it's designed to do very, very well. the awd performs flawlessly, offsetting the somewhat unbalanced nature of the car. think of it as an 800 pound tiger clawing it's way through a china shop instead of gracefully Pirouetting. a definite drive if you are in the market for an awd performance machine.

Pros: awd; reliable; good resale; extremely helpful community; easy to maintain; excellent aftermarket

Cons: agressive styling is love it or hate it; stock seats are uncomfy; boxer engine is unsettling for some; develops rattles; noisy due to high performance orientation

Burnt Cluctch, Splash It On Like Calogne — Great car, all wheel drive is nice. Under steer can be a pain, but that comes with all wheel drive. My car has a custom built motor, fully catless, thus I get the nice loud boxer sound, but I also get the boxer smell. Great track car, but thats it.

Pros: 0-60 in under 5 seconds. Fun to drive in the rain and a awesome cult following.

Cons: Payments and insurance.
