To be honest, if I could have comfortably fit inside the WRX, I would have gotten one. At 6-11 it just wasn't happening. My shin kissed the under-dash panel with every shift so I went looking at the new Legacy. I wasn't thrilled with the 2.5i but wouldn't settle for anything less than a manual transmission. Enter the GT.
I gave up about 1 second 0-60 but got the room I needed. I'm very pleased with the car and have already done some modding. Hey STI, where the @#$ is that exhaust system?
