And concerning your previous post, if you don't care about how the car handles under performance conditions, then why did you buy a sports car in the first place???

I was a huge hater when the GR came out...now look what I drive. Couldn't ever go back to a Sedan after owning this STI. Performance + Utility = Awesome.

To each their own.
