    Subaru Impreza Wrx Sti — My 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STI accelerates 0 - 100 km/h in 5 sec, Brembo braking system - fantastic, sticks to the road like glue with it's all wheel drive and semi - slick tyres. Interior is plain, it is expected because it is built for performance. The exterior has a masculine look, not for the faint hearted. Fuel consumption - it is thirsty, not good for the pocket. Maintenance is free with motor plan for first 3 years. Tyres will be pricey. You can feel the G-forces. It is like a fighter jet without wings.

    Pros: Performance , acceleration, braking, handling

    Cons: feul consumption

    Best Car To Buy Stock — This car is extremely fun to drive and it's fast even completely stock. Acceleration and pickup are exceptional with fantastic handling and braking. Never had any problems with repairs or excessive tune-ups, gas mileage is great. The car is built incredibly well and I have never had an issue with it. The exterior of the car is streamlined and bold despite the way it looks in some pictures. The interior sleek and comfortable.

    Pros: fun, doesn't need maintenance, attractive

    Cons: repairs are more costly due to the fact that it's a foreign car

    Look At My 08 Grb — if you were to choose your first car, this bad boy ain't in your list and better stay off. the 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STi features 305hp more like 250 hp to the wheels. power to all four wheels is just the way of handling and those BBS with 245/40R18 is really gripping. the widebody and the longer wheel base is really pushing those four wheels to the bottom of the paramid and which out perform any other year (stock). with the prevous years the Weight less rear end its easy to come loose during high speed turns, and which this year the GRB is the better way to go not only the extended width and wheelbase has help already, it is because double wisbone. but with that much grip plus the subaru understeer, it really ruin the fun and joy.

    Pros: throttle response, OEM widebody, BBS 18x8.5

    Cons: understeering

    Best Bang For The Buck! — It's a rally car made for the everyday commuter and car buff alike. We took this car to the limit...but don't tell the guys at the club (shhhh). ;-)

    Pros: Agility, poise, stealth like looks and confidence when you're behind the wheel.

    Cons: tall profile makes you feel like you're not in a sports car.

    Fast And Grippy. — The car is fast which is to be expected with the STi badge. The transmission is awesome. I love the hatch look. What can I say that hasn't already been said about this car.

    Pros: This is the perfect car for me.

    Cons: The front windshield has these dots that I can't tint over and apparently they are indestructable since nobody knows how to get rid of them.

    From Supercar To Ford Focus :( — The 2008 WRX STi maintains much of the performance characteristics, but you'd be hard pressed not to judge this book by it's cover. The agressive styling of large wings/scoops, wide fender flairs, and cut lines give way to what looks like a Ford Focus. Additionally, much of the performance edge that made this car so special has been worn away in what can only be perceived as an attempt to appeal to a new market. This new design ultimately ends the tough competition between the WRX STi and the Lancer Evolution with a disqualification for the STi.

    Pros: Performance
    Price

    Cons: Looks
    Hatchback

    Took Awhile, But I Like It. Face It The Sellout Started In 2004 — It's too soon to judge - except for the design in pictures. I have to admit, I had a hard time with it too. But not as bad as when they destroyed the front end of the car that rendered the WRX and STi to Nissan/Toyaota/Honda blandness. The "Bug Eye" design that hit our shores in 2002 & 2003 was funky, odd, but ALL Subaru - there was no mistaking it. You loved it or you hated it. Nonetheless, it was fresh and original, and the owners of those cars knew it. 2004-2007 marked the end (to the guy who thinks the '05 was the ultimate design). The latest iteration is actually an improvement. The hatch-look is more of a Euro thing that Americans just don't "get." Thanks Subaru for casting your pearls before the swine and attempting to broaden American "taste."

    Pros: In the tradition of Subaru - the design is controversial. That keeps it intersting.

    Cons: Lose the navigation system.  The STi is not about luxury, bells, and whistles

    Great All Around Car — Bought this car after my 240sx, 300zx, and GTI. I really enjoyed my time with it and totally regret selling it. I thought I no longer needed a fast car or stick shift. It turns out I was wrong. I loved the car, it's great acceleration, the turns in the corner. Superb. I loved the space I had in the trunk. Just all around a great performer. Here are the mods I had: Tint 15% all around Red overlay tailights Debaged Subaru All Weather Floor Mats Gunmetal finish on stock STi wheels Whiteline Swaybars (front and rear) Hawk Ceramic Brake Pads R205 Badges JNA Front Lip Hella Supertones RED

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great power, great handling, great chassis, good space for passengers and cargo especially with the seats down

    Cons: Weak paint, weak horn, weak stock stereo unit
