Classy looking car, and it has all the amenities that I wish my impreza had.
Dealer wouldn't let me in the thing, but he said it handles better than the wrx, but not as good as the STi, (weight), it has the 6mt, and a very underrated 240 some odd hp. It also now has the subaru intelligent drive with gas mileage mode, normal, and sporty modes. The guy said it's more aimed at the luxury performance market. If the STi Doesn't get out of it's hatchback phase... spec B is mine.
Availability was a limited 500 for 06, but 07 is not a limited run model, so it's much more widely avail. and starts at 34k-ish. (sti territory)
