Doug DeMuro you do know that in Japan, our large size is still smaller then a US small drink... so this is why the cup holders work. We don’t drink 60oz coke from fast food

Well the fake metal in the steering wheel was a good choice. Subaru knew that people were going to tune these and race them. I wouldn’t want to crash and hit my face on a hard metal wheel.

Loved my 04 wrx but the turbo lag was horrendous compared to every turbo car i have owned since then.. heck even my 87 turbo II spooled quicker with a vastly larger turbo

If I was in my early to late 20’s when this came out I would’ve bought it in a heartbeat. It’s everything I’ve ever looked for in a car. I’m 18 now but I’m gonna try as hard as I can to find a close to stock one in the future if I have the money. They’ll probably be so expensive by then... I’ve been trying to mod my regular Mazda 3 2.0 to be like a Mazdaspeed 3, only to realize that the WRX STi is everything the Mazdaspeed is and way more. The simple blue interior, relative practicality of a 4 door, manual, turbo sound, wheels, spoiler, body style... Everything is perfect

I bought my PSM STi brand new in 2004. Never had problems except for the stupid struts that kept going out due to a design defect. Never modified it (except for Tokiko D Specs) or crashed it. Not my daily driver. Thought about getting rid of it but this video changed my mind.

Doug's laughter at 22:34 is a joy to see, and such a cool, visceral reminder of what a cool car it was, and how cars that were really, really FUN to drive are such a wonderful, rare thing, and there are seemingly so few of them, that are still affordable, nowadays. There are a few, but it's too bad there aren't more...

Doug, I love the review, love your other stuff. That car needs snow and good winter tires. your handling, fun factor and acceleration score would have been a 7. I love my 05OTB, ita a practical car in the summer but a bit thirsty. but when winter comes, every morning is a rally run. I cant wait for the first snow storm of the year!

It's not. He thinks it is because the USA didn't get the GC8. A Version 5 or 6 is a far more iconic car than that.

Subaru wrxs and stis were only good until the 2015s came out the 2015+ wrxs and stis are just like too controlled almost the older ones are just for raw and that’s what makes them great

Hey I enjoy your reviews Doug. But a couple nit-picks here (I own a '04 WRX wagon) - the key fob did have Subaru on it. But with years of use, it's worn away. - the center console cup holder is small, but, fits a standard soda can perfectly - Does any car have a large metal plate in it's center? Would be a big hazzard in an airbag deployment wouldn't it? Agree though, they shouldn't have even tried.

The headlight adjuster is not for fog. It's to adjust your headlights down in you're carrying alot of weight / passengers in the back. Otherwise the headlights will be too high and dazzle other drivers.

the scoop isn't to get air into the engine. That air runs over the intercooler. The intake air comes in up by the radiator.
