Ordered a 5 speed 5 door Sterling Grey Metallic last week SE with the Sport Package, 16" painted pockets, and sync. I feel like I will not be unhappy with this decision. I'm trading in my 2011 Impreza in on it and I also drive a 1993 Prelude for fun (It's my race car lol).
So far I see no real draw backs. This car will be my daily driver and ocassional fun/autocross car when the Prelude is down. I hope to see decent handling out of the box. I loved the steering feel from the electric steering, it reminded me a lot of the s2000 I had, and from what I can tell on my test drive of a manual sedan the car felt great on backroads.
Figured I would hit up the forums and see what people think.
