After wanted a wrx for many years I finaly brought one six months ago-I have not been disapointed. A few things you should know/expect.... Firstly I love my car, its amazing and it accelerates and handles like you would not believe.The interior is an improvement over the classic shape and is very comfortable even over long journeys the bucket seats and Momo stearing wheel all look really great and make you feel your driving something special.The exterior is one that you will either love or hate, especialy the headlights-Subaru do an upgrade which makes a big differance in looks though. But their are a couple of minor things you need to know, running costs are expensive as it drinks more then an alcaholic this is due to the car being perminent 4WD, the body work is quite thin in order to make the car lighter so every little dent really shows and I have been pulled over twice now by the police as they like to do checks on imprezas as they get alot of reports of them stolen (or maybe its because of my shaved head who knows!). Overall though if you can afford to buy and run an Impreza you should definatly buy one you will not regret it. Plus there is a big impreza sceen-alot of clubs,forums track days etc and you tend to find owners tend to wave and flash to each other....as sad as that may be.... But beware owning one could take over your life!!!!!
Having owned and driven a basic spec 2.0 Impreza without the 4x4 option, I didnt find the economy any different. However the WRX model has thicker suspension settings and the body is also additionally heavier which may explain the poor fuel consumption. Again more details here needed to impress upon future consumers. You can edit any of your reviews on here at any time. Try and explain what the handling is like because the more concise you are with info, the more helpful your review will stand out.. I got rid of the Impreza because I couldnt live with its saloon design and the dashboard really put me off.
