I test drove one today also...

To be completely honest, I was hoping for a tad more "Oomph" when hitting the gas. Don't get me wrong, it's definitely quick! But power build seems a tad sluggish, then the midrange and upper end power is much better... 2nd gear pulls are fun!

I'd be curious the difference the intake/tuner would make. Either way, I REALLY like it, handles incredibly. I used to have an '08 STI so maybe I'm just expecting a little too much, considering it's a 2.0L and has 50hp less than my STI did.

Either way, great car. I'd buy one. Might even sell my SEL for it, if they can't get my MyTouch fixed!
