Hi All.. great info here! I'm really on the fence at the moment after driving both the MS3 and WRX. Coming from a '08 Miata, I suppose NOTHING will be as tight in the twisties. I found the WRX to be a little soft (leaned quite a bit in the corners) but was comfortable. The MS3 was much tighter and the acceleration more neck-snapping while the WRX was more linear. One huge advantage to me (coming from the miata) is that a moonroof is available along with heated seats.. both of which the MS3 is without. I drove a second WRX today and it seemed less "soft" and I actually liked it. Unfortunately, the only premiums around here are blue and my first choices are white and silver.
Some questions for 09/10 owners:
1. Does the bright yellow "Airbag on/off" light ALWAYS stay illuminated in the info display?
2. Does the STI short shift option already installed also have the bushing or are they separate?
3. Is the 10-speaker radio THAT bad (haven't heard it yet).
4. What DON'T you like about your '09/'10?
Thanks so much guys!!!
