Chris Thys' 2005 Subaru WRX STI

Oct 1, 2009

Chris Says
I originally had a WRX with some mild power, and I started to get nervous about how that power was affecting the tranny; as most Subaru people know, the 5-speed is not that capable of holding too much torque before it lets go. I then decided to switch it up to an STI. It has a much better platform and a tranny that can handle tons of torque with no issues. So far, this car has been a blast and I've had no problems with it since owning it.

We Say
We cant get enough of this clean Subie! It's got style and performance behind it. The molded trunk lip is also a very nice touch and definitely makes it stand out that much more. Add the bronze Work Wheels, and you've got an unbeatable combination.
