    current subarus suuuuuuuuuuuck, i would not buy anything they make now. current crosstrek compared to a 2004 STI is like comparing a toyota yaris to a mid-90's 2JZ-powered Supra :)

    nearly! has some tokico D3 struts and cobb sway bars, but other than that the suspension is stock. for power mods it has a cobb OTS tune (will be getting a pro tune from JM in minneapolis this summer), cobb intake, turbo heatshield, and turboXS exhaust. so really, in the STI world . . ...
