Koup or sedan -- nice handling, great fuel economy, enough power to enjoy -- but not enough to brag about or beat a WRX...LoL! Aftermarket is coming along: there are 2 intakes to choose from now (Injen's and Turbokit's). Exhausts are hard to find yet...some are expected soon -- have to modify locally if that's what you want.

looking for the koup two door.. i really want one, it drove nice and best of all not loud like my car lol. it seems like a fun car to own and possible modify in the future even tho its fwd :( but i think this is the only fwd car id actually buy.

Do you have the STi and are you going to keep it? I love my Koup and it's definitely flattering when everybody on the road is always staring at it everyday.

It's not gonna be anywhere close to the power you got now though. In the future some bolt ons will help a little bit but it's not AWD so you'll never have the control quite like a Soobie.

Well in that case I'd say go for the Koup then! I thought you were looking to perhaps replace the WRX.

Debadge it and you'll get headturners everywhere you go. A guy in a brand new M3 almost rear ended someone yesterday cause he was staring so hard.
