    New Scooby Driver.

    Ok i've been a nissan guy all my life and now my girlfriend is buying an 04 wrx. I just wanted to know what pro's and con's there are with the 04's.

    I test drove this wrx and went up through the gears. Is the tranny supposed to have a whining sound or be louder than other car makes, I.E. 240's, celica's. etc. etc. etc.
