    Great Sports Car, But With High Fuel Consumption — If you´re looking for comfortable car, try somewhere else... It also cannot be described as luxurious, it´s sportscar equipped with necessary basic , but that´s it, nothing extra... - great sports car, but with high fuel consumption - if you´re driving only weekends or don´t care about it - get one - superb acceleration, great handling, very good brakes - high consumption, not very good for everyday use

    Pros: superb acceleration, great handling, very good brakes

    Cons: high consumption, not very good for everyday use

    I Love My Car! — This is the best car in the world. It handles great, it looks great, and it's one of the safest vehicles on the road.

    Pros: fast, clean, nice....did I mention fast?

    Cons: It sounds like a tin can when it rains hard.

    Just Grips — This was the practice car for the track day at Mallory Park a couple of years ago. Top of the range model, I just cannot believe how fast this thing could go round corners. It gripped forever, and though I was getting fairly good by the end I got the feeling I wasn't even testing it's limits, let alone pushing them. I only did a few miles in it so can't really comment on reliablity, its a jap so I would assume it would run forever but a mate of mine has one and has gotten some major grief. It's got it all, space, speed and so much traction even I couldn't crash it. A serious contender for my next car, except that I love mid-mounted engines too much. Oh, and the evo's always been prettier.

    Pros: Handles brilliantly, lots of space

    Cons: Not pretty, and I imagine the milage aint great.

    Subaru Impreza Wrx Sti My05 — Coming from a 2WD world to a 4WD world is something everyone should experience. The STi is probably the greatest car I've ever driven! I love the way the drive can be manually controlled with the DCCD (Driver Controlled Center Diff) and the automatic setting does good work on wet and dry tarmac. In the winter this car is just amazing! Four-wheel slides are easy to control and the ABS system coupled with Brembo brakes and Hakkapeliitta 5 205/50R17 rubber makes stopping and braking in general easy and controlled. The only things I've come to miss so far are the added comforts you get on some cars. This includes parking assists, rain sensors, cruise control and so on, but you really only miss them during long trips.

    Pros: F U N!!! That's the only word to describe the STi. If you don't mind the fuel consumption and the costly service and just want FUN, the STi is your car!

    Cons: If you prefer economical and sensible cars, look somewhere else. The STi is pricey to maintain, because of all the high-tech equipment, it eats your tires and it burns plenty of fuel.

    All Weather Performance — Literally UNBELIEVABLE grip in the dry and the wet, great sound from that flat-four boxer engine, solid buid although plastics used for interior are cheap. Great performance. High servicing costs and fuel costs

    Pros: Great performance, whatever the weather.

    Cons: Running costs

    Winter Weapon — A WRB STI was my boyhood dream car and it hasn't disappointed me! It's an absolute weapon in the snow and a blast to drive in all conditions. The engine has a good amount of power and the transmission is perfect. Smooth engagement, short throw and bomb-proof build quality. Engine has the performance of a supercar but the reliability of an econobox. Highly recommend to anyone looking for powerful all-year-round car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Awesome power and torque. Great steering feel and overall handling. AWD and limited slip differentials make the STI a tank in the snow.

    Cons: Rides like a race car. Standard rattles associated with Subarus and other Japanese cars.
