Hi there.

Im currently driving a '96 auto wagon. It is slower than a manual, but that is to be expected. 0-60 time is pretty horrendous on mine at well over 7 seconds thanks to the lack of a clutch and turbo lag, but once it gets over 3000 rpm and the turbo is up and running there isnt a lot in it tbh. I drive with friends who have Evos and Skyline GTR's and they are quicker but i don't embaress myself. Mine has a few minor engine and suspension mods which make a diffeence.

For the price (they go for about 1000 quid over here) it is a hell of a car and even in auto form has more than enough to see off most other cars on the road. I am however looking at cars at the moment. The lack of a manual box is really beginning to get me down so im looking for either an Sti VI wagon (found a beauty) or an Evo VII. If you can do without a manual box then definitely go for it, but give it some serious thought.
