These early cars really set a high bar for future STIs in my mind. I'm still waiting for Subaru to release another one that's so impressive relative to what's out currently.
The 2005 is truly one of my favorites.. always has been. I am just glad the car is 'still' in decent shape after 16 years now.. Thank God. And I totally agree.. To much 'Fluff' on the newer ones.. This is a 'True' performance version. Not alot of people know that this model had lots of hidden stuff that made it a true drivers car..Ex: The Rear window glass is thinner than the Std Impreza/WRX model for weight savings. Little stuff like that. Everything they did with this model had a purpose to enhance it.
