First impression was very good. Just walking up on it I noticed the BIG brembo's and 17in enkie's. You could deffinatley tell that the stock WRX is not as performance oriented as the EVO,(note I said WRX not STi)
The interior was strikingly similar, the seats felt as supportive as the WRX, fabric was almost identical w/ graphite colored sides and a blueish pattern for the rest of the seat. Interior quality overall was no-better/worse, guages were a little cooler but I liked the layout of the WRX dash/stereo and center console better.
Then engine was "cooler-looking" as the standard lay-person would see it. However, the intake plumbing from the IC to the TB seemd cheap, almost like spraypainted aluminum. I dunno, thats just something that struck me as I approached the engine bay.
Overall, looks like a very sweet car, the front is more agressive than the WRX specially with that FMIC DOH!.
The whole experience was a water-fall of motivation to heavily modify my WRX
