Anyone own one?
I have been thinking about buying one lately.
2nd gen probably, 3rd gen possibly
they are growing on me...
any owners or previous owners thoughts?
What year you looking at?
I had a 2004 a while back.
Only lasted a day.
cleaned up a a few poles after drifting her around a corner in back streets where many farms are so mud on the read made me loose it and seeing I was
just learning manual driving Thought I can hold it in 2nd but because it was modded it had a few more horses that I didn't expect and it just felt
like I was rails, back end swung back around so quick after trying to correct it that it just spun the car and off the road through a pole or 2 and
ended up backing it into a heavy telephone pole that totaled the back end.
I had luck on my side as I was headed sideways and thought this is about to hurt but just reflexes turn the wheel to keep you spinning to try and hit
the pole side on and luckily it spun just in the right motion to get the back end to take the impact
Got a Evo 7 after that and the WRX just doesn't compare in terms of driving and car control, the Evo just Sh!ts all over the WRX on tarmac.
Not done any gravel driving in a WRX but have heard that they have a leg up on evo's on off road/gravel.
driver comfort, after the 2004 model they changes the seats,
2004 and prior had nice racing style seats which were more comfortable than the EVos recaro seats then they changes the seats to a more less sporty
look and feel.
The boxter engines just sound awesome with 3 inch full exhaust, they are so distinct that its one easiest motors to guess when you hear them.
4wd 2L turbos, be it a WRXy or an EVO.
You turn into a little kid the amount of fun you can have in these cars.
