We went on a 10 minute test drive and i couldn't stand the seats. Just because a car "looks nice" doesn't mean its made quality. My car is a 2004 and it has yet to have one rattle. Most domestic cars start rattling after 4 years.
I call bs on the rattles unless P.O. Added a ton of sound material or pulled ever panel and fixed the rattle.

The interior of my pooparu is pretty rattle free as well.

although its more plasticy and cheaply made than my late 80's golf was.

also STi interiors are awful compared to anything else in its price range...just sayin.

all told I still want one though.

edit:
euro bumper win! so hot!
