Our Blue Candy SE Sport 5-Spd w/ 201A, winter pack, and 17" wheel option has been great other than a rattle/buzz around the instrument cluster that the dealer should fix under warranty. It's got 8k miles now.

I wish the 201a came with better display screens, but it was certainly easier to upgrade the speakers on the 4-speaker 201a system than it likely would have been with the 6-speaker 203a package. Give and take I guess. I also wish the side bolstering on the sport seats was more aggressive. My skinny frame slides around in these seats much more so than in the sport seats in my 9-5 Aero.

No more 5-speed with sport cloth seats (and 60/40 split rear), leather steering wheel and upgraded suspension. In fact, our seats are now only available in the ST!

The only way to get rear disc brakes, a leather steering wheel and 60/40 split rear seatbacks is to upgrade to 201A, which also adds leather seats and 17" wheels and bumps the price of the car to $22,525!

I, for one, am glad I picked up my car when I did.
If you had to have the DCT the base SEL was a better value than a 203a SE sport, but that option is also completely eliminated next model year.

I'm proud of the fact that I checked off exactly two options. Sport package and convenience package. I got everything I wanted and nothing I didn't want, and they even threw in active grille shutters as a surprise!

I could have easily done without the convenience package. I've never used the cruise control.

I love my Race Red SE Sport 203A Hatchback with DCT and Convenience Package and Sync. I have the 17" Painted Black Wheels. The cloth sport seats are very comfortable and I use the Cruise Control on a majority of my travels. I get lots a compliments.

Awesome Car. Made right here in the Good Ole USA!

I found a sonic blue hatch, SE sport, manual, sync, and winter, and I like it so much better than my previous '10 Impreza Premium hatch.
