"If you plan to take your Subie to the track, the STI makes a case."

That's why the STi exists. If you look at it as just your daily driver then you just won't understand.

Do not listen to this Review, Kelsey Mayshas has no idea what she is talking about. The 2015 Subaru STI is a performance car, now show any performance car under 40G that holds its value better then the STI? NONE! Awesome car, Smart Investment!

I'm not sure of she quite understands what it is she's trying to review. The STi is a performance car built for people with performance as their sole concern. While the ride can be stiff, the car does all it claims to do and in excellent, rumbling fashion. I own a 2005 STi myself and I must say that even at 10 years old I have hardly noticed any turbo lag in any gear. As far as the WRX being comparable and, in her opinion, the better option; its ludicrous. I have friends who own and drive WRXs and they are far more prone to lag and under steer than my STi. This isn't a luxury sedan view and calling the wing "silly" is not only a discredit to her professionalism but a clear display of her lack of knowledge about the vehicle. The STi is birthed of a rally-car where the large wing improves high speed stability. Subaru tried to continue all these elements in the road-going version. In conclusion; understand what you are reviewing and review it from a standpoint relative to the targeted demographic. 50 year old women driving Audis and BMWs are not the audience Subaru designed this car for.
