Very different. It goes through the corner like its on rails. Its scary, yet fun.

yeah mate changes whole way car handels, thing is impreza's aren't the best handeling cars in the world, they just have stupid amounts of grip. by changing the suspension for adjustables which are stiffer, lowering the centre of gravity with lowering springs and uprating anit roll bars (i believe you call them sway bars over there) etc you make a much better handeling car.

good example of this is my car felt a bit skitish under heavy braking and hard acceleration, and the arse end tended to just step out suddenly with no warning. since having all the suspension etc change i can tell when its gonna step out way before it actually does, plus its seems to be easier to control it and add some more ina controlled assion if you want to get a bit sideways.
