Not only have I "f'd" this, but I've showered and sent it home!! Next.

Heheh, the Impreza is in a whole 'nother league that you can't touch even if you raced some Impreza L driven by a 16 year old girl and won. And dreaming about owning an M5 doesn't count. You and VWhobo need a hug.

-Josh

Top end...all about top end for me. My car cannot take a whole lot off the line as it is an "eta" engine, but the BMW top end is hard to beat!!

It was a freeway encounter a couple of weeks ago. Don't know what exactly it was...but was the ugly blue with the hood scoop and big ugly off road driving lights...as I got a good long look at them in my rearview mirror...haha...flash, flash, flash...

Right on- yeah, that is a complete opposite to the no-top-end WRX. I would think an STi would be a different story though.

Personal experience, the STi top end is handicap by its 4wd. They maybe great off the line, but they start runing out of puff pretty quick. Its a 2ltr motor with a smallish VF turbo. Can't expect it to pull hard at high speed.

Heh, you speak so soon- the STi has a 2.5l, not a 2.0...

While I certainly don't want to be the one to defend spirited driver, it might interest you to know that cars are sold all around the world, not just in Australia. You are absolutely correct in stating the Aussie and Jap version of the STI have a 2.0L engine but the US spec version indeed has a 2.5L.

Very often cars that are imported to this country come with the largest engine available in their home country. Sometimes even a US specific engine. Alot of it has to do with the mentality that a smaller engine is cheap instead of looking at them as high tech. Some of it also has to do with the generally greater distances between cities (Oz being an exception) and the relatively low price of gas.
