The Lowkey Track/Daily Driver

Its a quick car with lots of room for improvememts. Ok mpg for daily use and the manual option makes everything more fun. Except for traffic crawling. The short throw shifter option that mine came with helps alot with avoiding later installation of another shifter. I would reccomend for all wrx and sti to get a Cobb AP. Also condider the recalls for the EJ and FA engines and think about weather you will keep stock Maps for your ecu.

Pros

  • Reliability: Subaru
  • Value: No high insurance because it is a 4door sedan.
  • Ride and Handling: Its a wrx

Cons

  • Cabin Noise: Its plasticy in there with little improvements since the wrx from the early 2000s.
  • Seat Comfort: Lumbar support has always been a gripe from wrx owners for long drives.
