    2005 Subaru Wrx Sti — Excellent power. Turbo spools quickly with almost no lag. My first all wheel drive, take a little getting used to. Not as nimble as an M3 or a Miata but I really enjoyed this car. If I could get another 2005 I would in a heartbeat.

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

    Pros: Power, comfort

    Cons: That I had to get rid of it.

    Cheap Fun — - fast enough to keep with sport cars that cost 3x times as much - rattles and squeaks abit but its a cheap sports car - gas mileage depends on my right foot - a sports car that you can have fun with all year round

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

    Pros: All wheel drive, turbo

    Cons: 4 doors

    For The Money, Its Cant Be Beaten! — Handling is awesome, but would recomend having one with the prodrive performance pack (PPP) fitted as it could be quicker, but in the real world, very little would keep up with it as it is. Its not the prettiest car, but then its not built for style.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handling-whatever the weather

    Cons: Likes a bit of fuel! As low as 8mpg if you try hard enough.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: lsd... and turbo

    Cons: not much leg room in the back... small trunk

    Amazing — The brakes could be a little bit better, but other than that, it's perfect! I love the kick it has when you accelerate. I love the sound of the turbo and when its dumping. Its amazing. I recommend it to everyone! Once you drive an STi, you won't want another car!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Brakes

    Best Buy For The Money — Just amazing go on a back country road or mountain pass and know where you point this car it goes, downshift to third at 55 mph and be at 80 mph in about 2 secs. She will turn heads wherever she is.

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

    Pros: Fast as heck, and awesome handling.

    Cons: None !

    Best Car For Our Roads — Most beautiful package ever! Awesome in all aspects. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for. 4 secs 0 to 60. huge brakes and beautiful suspension. about 300kms per 50 dollars of fuel. burns fuel like a truck but with return on your money... all smiles

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

    Pros: Try and you'll love

    Cons: if you can't afford gas, don't even bother, no pay, no play
