    My new Bat Car(Sorry 56Kers)

    As some as you may know I now live in N.Ireland this has made the move worth while.

    Well after almost 3 months of waiting,I flew from Belfast to Bristol in England to pick up the Spec C yesterday.

    Intial reviews after driving back almost 500 miles and taking the ferry.

    This car plain and simple is a race car with a nice interior.
    It does not sound like a normal Impreza boxer.
    Even though I took it easy I could just tell it was wanting to break free. Most incredible part is no understeer this things handle like it is on rails.

    The only thing I dont like is because the car has been lightened up and has no sound deading it is really noisy. I may have to stick with the cooper S being the commuter car.

    Here are some pics when I picked it up will try and take some better one if the weather is good this weekend.

    I don't know much about the JDM WRX/STi so go easy on me. 1st, what is that on the roof of the car. 2nd why don't the JDM STi's come with the HUGE spoiler?
    You wouldn't understand if you stood under it.....

    Answer to your fist question is that this is a roof vent found only on Spec C's reason for this is that they are usaully not equiped with AC, but my car is a Spec C LTD so it has AC and the Vent.



    Second Question dont know why they sell them with the small wings.
