Smashing motors. Have driven a couple and liked them a lot. If i had kids would love a V2 Forrester STi.

I thought they had the UK car had the same Bhp as the Impreza STi (according to that 5th gear test) and almost same 0-60.

Re: cool or not?

A volvos a hearse(no disrespect to volvo owners) Was at knockhill on sat and spotted one from across the car park. It was very similar to the one in pics but the guy had a ppp kit on it,andy forest remap,coilovers,bigger intercooler etc..really nice couple.his was putting out 330bhp. Was an import from Car Planet in Warrington, i think,apparently the only place in the uk to get your imports as he doesn't buy any old crap. Just a stunning motor and the coolest thing there. Still cost about 10g's-16g's for 04-07 plate,30-60 thousand miles,265bhp as standard. Thanks again for all the replies.
