Agreed.

After thinking about it, 2 things bothered me:

1. It was a tight interior. Made a WRX feel roomy up front. That said, I might have just needed to adjust the seat more.

2. Shifter was further back than I'd want. Getting into 2/4 was slightly awkward. Again, see comment about seat adjustment above.


I do think the gearing/torque curve are better for around town than a WRX, but that's not hard to manage.
