TS was too plain, i really like the crystal grey/silver two-tone. TS didnt come with the rear spoiler, and nicer seats. the interior (seats mostly) of my car looks just like the wrx when it first came over here - '02 and '03. i would have liked the wrx wagon, but that was just way out of my budget. i got a massive good deal on this one too.
the plates are due to renew sept i think, so i have a month to figure anothter good plate lol
i jumped on the focus, when i probably shouldnt have, did NOT have a good deal,.. and saw the reliability of a subbie versus a ford, had to go import PLUS this subbie was a steal so i traded.
it is the 2.5, but singel cam, not DOHC and turboed like the STi, .. the wrx is 2.0 turbo... it seems to accelerate similar to the focus, but it is about 3k lbs,... 165 at the crank, DT power loss is about 21-22% versus typcial FWD cars fo 17-18% dt loss.
