bziller - if you want to get picky he did saw 160 HP to the ground (i.e. wheel HP).

So if the WRX is quick because of AWD, why isn't a 1.8L AWD Impreza quick then? HP doesn't seem to make much of a difference, according to you...

I can answer a few of your questions though:

- the 5spd is...touchy. I get some weird problems every now and then (4th grinds on downshifts, shifting into 1st very hard), but overall its fine. Not great though.

- my friend in PA has an '01 2.5RS, and he says it handles slush and snow with ease.

- Imprezas seem pretty mod friendly, but compared to Hondas, all our parts costs twice as much. Maintenance wise it's not any harder than any other car.
