Now after owning one at Stage 2 (Cobb intake + turboback + AP), they're quick, don't get me wrong, but it leaves you wanting more power almost. It's kinda of once you start getting used to it.
None the less, the sound is great and the entire car stimulates your senses... noise, power, handing, visuals.
Good description - but you can get used to almost any power level. I personally feel for DD, stage 2 with some suspension mods and good tires makes for the perfect subie experience. Sure there are faster cars or prettier cars, but Stage 2 is pretty good for the level of investment.
I think most would agree with this - Now once you go past Stage 2 there is plenty of fun, but it costs more and might come with less reliability. I feel Stage 2 with suspension mods is the sweet spot.
