I've had my 2.0 sport for 3 years - I love it. Apart from the very long flat out places, I can keep up with the best of 'em! It's nippy and I've had it up to top end speed regularly with no problem. There are no dips in performance, although you need to work the gears as you would in a small sport hatch. I dont find that a problem - I like driving my car rather than just posing. I replaced the wheels and spoiler almost straight away and de-badged it. A cool car that has street cred and is very under-rated!

Would say with a sport if youre into imprezas with a few choice mods its easy to make it look like a turbo,cheaper insurance,good handling however pretty sure you wont keep up with many hot hatches if im honest.ie civic type r`s/astra+corsa vxr`s/golf gti turbos etc/106gti`s(mate with a bugeye impreza turbo couldnt keep with mine round town ring road) in fact also probably off the deck starlet turbos them things are very under rated and light.
