yeah... the STi ain't all that. I am very dissapointed with WRX that's why i'm gettin an 03 cobra or mach 1 in a couple weeks. AWD is the only thing it has. it can ONLY win from the line, if it can even. the 03 is too powerful, and the same price the cobra is such a better car, supercharger, T56, better looks, sound and a warranty. the STi is almost maxed out and with mods won't get #'s like the cobra. even if i get a mach 1, do gears , exhaust, shifter and headers they couldnt keep up. and from a roll a 96+ cobra with a couple mods would prob beat an STi.
