By far the best advice in this thread and the best use of money. Learn how to use your car's potential to go faster through the turns. The STI's AWD system is great for getting novices through corners quickly. Unfortunately, it also "inspires [false] confidence" making people think that they're better drivers than they actually are. It helps mask bad driving habits and prevents drivers from learning how to improve their driving skills. Needless to say, you shouldn't be exceeding speed limits on public winding roads for the safety of others..

While your thread's title says "winding roads", it sounds like you're fine with the 45 mph through the curves, but want a car that's faster on the straights. In that case, it sounds like a Mustang GT should be in your future You can reliably make more horsepower for less money.

Again, shouldn't be going 110 mph on public roads for the safety of others... Even the best driver's can't safely use the full potential of a stock STI on a public road.
