Increase in power for the WRX. From 218 PS to 225 PS (Wow!)

i see so that extra 7 PS must be a hell of a difference ha ha hmm i spoke to my insurance company today and they basically said wait a year once i hit 25 and keep 2 years bonus i shouldn't have any bother with exspensive insurance for the wrx anymore... i found a nice impreza r sport that looks the business and with the extra ponys should be a we bit quicker than my classic

a friend of mine used to have a 1998 classic turbo, i own a 2003 wrx turbo and they are totally different animals. The classic packed a hell of a punch when it came on boost and really chucked you back in your seat..... my wrx is much more subttle and a lot smoother to drive. The classic felt a lot faster then mine even though it wasnt

yeah that seems to be the general view people have. classics are slightly faster but bit more hard ride compared to new age cars.
