Potential New Owner Advice Please?

Hey guys first of all Hi and I'm sorry if i have posted this in the wrong section...

Been looking recently at getting a Subaru Impreza 2005 model I think the model is a GX Sport with 94K. Oh and its got a gas conversion.

Im literally brand new to Subarus so i know nothing about them is the GX Sport 4x4? 2.0L? Can they be easily modified? (Better exhaust/better spoiler etc)

Just wondering what these motors are like and if there is anything i need to look out for or watch when viewing this motor, overall the car i'm looking at is very nice just looks like cosmetics need tidying up.

I will be trading in a 2002 E46 320TD, what difference am i going to feel apart from diesel/petrol fuel consumption. Will the car feel any quicker/slower than the BMW.

Very sorry for all the questions but thanks in advance, can answers please not say get a wrx as its not an option as insurance is a killer for me.

Thanks again Cal

impreza's get there performance from the turbo, no turbo = no performance. you'll find the bmw superiour in pretty much every way, mpg, performance, comfort etc etc only saving grace of the impreza is the awd in winter.

personaly i'd stay with your bmw or go wrx/sti, but bear in mind you'll be sacraficing comfort and mpg for speed and performance
