      Got a solid deal on my trade in, got the standard discount subaru is applying to all WRXs.

      pretty cool but defies the car industry by becoming slower over time, maybe 0-60 in 5 seconds is around about what most people can take.

      this is 100% a momentum car, the engine is secondary to the chassis.

      >vegas
      Ayyy I went to The Meadows School.

      But I wouldn't recommend that car brah, poor MPGs and relatively mediocre performance either as a "sports car" or as a family sedan. It's lackluster at everything, unless you really really need AWD. But you live in Vegas so that'll prly almost never see snow

      I live in the PNW. The E36 M3 was called lackluster back in the day because it was a jack of all trades, expert at none. I've owned two. There is something I love about a car that is at home at all environments and imo the current gen WRX is one of the cleanest incarnations ever of the practical sports car concept.

      I had a UrS4 that made less power and got 13mpg. This thing is great, bra.

      Is it manual? What is TR? Can you still get the WRX with a mechanical LSD?

      TR comes in manual only, no sunroof, brembo 6 pots front, 2 pots rear, recaro seats, retuned suspension, steering and engine map, slightly stiffer chassis.

        Serious question, what made you get the WRX TR over a GR Corolla? Considering they're nearly the same price if you get a Core with the Performance Pack. I feel like the WRX is better if you're modding it cause you have 8+ years of VA WRXs to develop off of + no transfer case issues from the overdriven ring and pinion, but the GR is the better all around car if you're keeping it stock or lightly modded (ie under 350whp and not seriously tracking it)

          Do you believe a 3 cylinder in its very first high power, high boost application will be more reliable, or an evolutionary Subaru 4 cylinder

            Anonymous

            Toyota has a better reputation than Subaru even with Subaru evolving their motor for 10+ years. EJs are a great example. Their 3cyl is comically overbuilt anyways and the "high boost" is 3-4psi lower than what a FA20 WRX made factory...just the G16 has a head that flows extremely well. The turbo is the same size maybe a little smaller than the FA20 WRX.

            Plus the WRX has open diffs. That's my biggest problem with it. Giving it LSDs at front/center/rear isn't practical unless you spend real time and money.

            Toyotas worst engines are as reliable as Subarus best engines. The 2.4 Turbo 4cyl is pretty good and their non turbo engines are rock solid despite running literal water viscosity for oil. And the G16 GTS is already 3-4 years old with no issues other than weak valve springs past 350whp.

            Oh I have, the Tundra/LX600 engine is a one-off, probably a bearing supplier issue that will be fixed soon, the other V6 Turbos are fine in the GX and LS. The 2.4 Turbos are fine and built like a 1990s engine other than the direct injection. Ditto the 3cyl Turbo in the GRs. The G16 is remarkably similar to the BMW B58 in construction with comically thick cylinder walls (very unlikely to flex and move around, unlike EJs that require tons of bullshit to keep the motor from physically moving like 1/2in headstuds).

            Toyotas worst is unironically still better than most car makers best. You just have contrarian shills on DA that will somehow live in a magic world where a clapped 15 year old BMW N54 is just as reliable as a new Corolla hybrid and will jerk off to any bad news about the brand on top of chinkshit EV shills who again, pretend their car is as well built as a Toyota (not realizing they're admitting Toyota is the benchmark for most normie appliance cars)

            OP Here. I didn't consider the Corolla for a couple reasons.
            >I like passive AWD systems, my first choice would have been a center torsen but I have had a number of subarus before and the viscous center works great
            >The corolla looks cheap and there is no way I am spending that kind of money to get that interior and boy racer exterior. I like how the WRX looks grown up and how the TR is fairly low key.

            >Trying to test drive a GR before ordering one is a process. I don't want to deal with the hassle and I am not ordering a car with out driving it first.

            >Also to your last point, I could get an intake a tune for ~$1k and have more power than I need.

            Makes sense. I actually like the interior in the Corolla more. I dislike the touchscreen HVAC controls. Personally I don't like the open diff on the WRXs, you really feel it on corner exit where other AWDs you can just floor it out of a corner and it'll rocket out. Toyota dealership experience would be a turnoff too. They've been getting better about it now that the hype is dying but they can still be shitty in some of the cities, Honda is worse about their dealers tbh

            I'm not a huge fan of the touch screen but I can live with it.

            When a torsen/helical is available for the rear diff I am going to get that. a viscous center isn't a whole lot different feeling than a helical center, id take the helical over it every time though.

            My technique for driving older subarus is to late apex: brake in a straight line, rotate the car hard while putting in some yaw, then use the understeer under acceleration to null out the yaw. I know with the computer controlled systems you can put in a lot of throttle while you still have a lot of steering input but I never learned to drive that way.

        I live in a snow state and I’m stuck deciding between a TR or a used S550.
        They’re also replacing the TR with a new TS trim next year, may wait for that, but I’d feel like a goober driving around in what’s essentially an STI knock off.

        For the Mustang’s case, it’s basically the only car with a ton of horsepower that’s also relatively affordable.

          My .02 is that the TR was expensive enough, I don't want to pay for adjustable suspension. The blue panels on the Ts seats look gay. Then as you said the goober factor.

          >For the Mustang’s case, it’s basically the only car with a ton of horsepower that’s also relatively affordable.
          The mustang is honestly a piece of shit. Everybody complains about the clutch feeling weird, you know what has a normal clutch? a GT350. Ford gimped the clutch on the GT just to punish you. Mine was built so shitty that by 30k miles it had rattles and the seat belts didn't wind up by themselves. The entire underside looks like it was designed to catch road salt.

      So #1 I would have been in the market for a Premium trim sooo say $33,000 with factory discount.
      Look at the price of a full set of new VA STI calipers. I don't have a place to work on my car so I'd have to pay for them to be installed, that is most of the difference from Premium to TR. Then there is the more refined engine tuning and steering on the TR, the seats. And the fact all this is covered by a warranty.

      They've also put them on the WRX now. That car is AWD and known for rally racing. It should have 16" wheels and some sidewall. Those wheels and tires are the thing I hate most about the WRX.

        The wheel arches are easily replaced, the rear bumper is easily replaced. idk where the aftermarket is with making pieces that draw from the concept.

      The wheel arch plastics have grown on me. I was 100% sold on getting color matched ones but now that I am living with it I like how it looks like an outback sport sedan or something. It kinda blends in more with the mass of subarus out there.

      As for the bumper... yeaaaaaah. When the aftermarket comes out with something that looks OEM+ I am going to be all over that. Like if you look at that picture you posted and mentally delete the black plastic, the painted bit has this tight little ass. It just needs an actual diffusor or something else to clean up the look.
