Hello everyone. I'm about to order a 2017 WRX, and was looking to get some input from current owners.
1) Has anyone experienced any issues with ground clearance? The car sits at 4.9" which is lower than most cars out there. I live in NYC where the roads are utter crap, and I really don't want to be scraping all over the place and my bumper catching on everything.
2) Everyone complains about road noise. On my test drive I wasn't able to get it over about 55mph due to congestion. Aside from engine noise/turbo stool I didn't notice any excessive noise (a bit more than my current BMW 5 Series). Does the noise get that bad at speeds of 70mph+? If I need to yell to have a conversation on a road trip I may need to pass.
I appreciate any input/feedback. Thanks in advance.
