For me,
Good points are:
1. Handling and speed
2. comaraderie ( thanks all)
3. Street cred!

Bad points are:
1. Service prices
2. insurance (even at my age!)
3. Worry of theft

Dont find fuel economy too bad.

Yes I think all would agree that the bad points don't matter really

GRIN and WOW factors are all that count

The Good:

1. Confidence in bad weather situations, AWD rules!
2. I love the sound of the boxer turbo like Nelson said, it sounds great with a catless exhaust. 8)
3. The friends I have made from owning my Impreza!

The Bad:

1. Steering could be a little faster
2. I would have a lot more money saved up if I had just bought a Honda Civic :P
3. This one interior rattle that I can't find!

The Ugly:
1. It's not an STi (but I still love my Rex!)
