The 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi was a special car -- and today I'm going to show you why. I'm going to review the original WRX STi, then I'm going to drive it and show you what it's like behind the wheel of the Impreza WRX STi.

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

The reason the wheel is plastic is because it has an airbag in it 😂 Airbag + Metal wheel = A real weapon of mass destruction.

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...

Interesting. For all the years I've driven in EU basically every car had the option of angling headlights
enduroelite Pirms 16 dienām
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!

Neil Ritchie
Neil Ritchie Pirms 20 dienām
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.

I love Doug's enthusiasm in this video. I did some street racing back when this car was new and the STi was one of the most feared cars on the street.

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.

Had a 05 STI (blue with silver wheels) it was a blast to drive and the Asian girls love it (picked up plenty of them).

The steering wheel is made from soft materials so you don’t get hit with metal if the air bag goes off lol...
JbH905 Pirms Mēneša
Cars with a metal steering wheel usually have a air bag mounted in front of the wheel

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.

About the cup holders, you have to remember in the US, our cups are way larger that almost everywhere else in the worlds. I'm sure someone in japan would find that tiny cup holder useful.

I have a 19 STI @ 9k miles, bought at 4900k miles with only a Cobb AOS. Otherwise BONE STOCK. I enjoy it so much as is because it’s my dream car. Just got it’s 2nd, my 1st oil change. May do a cat-back at most just to improve driveability i.e. hear when to shift lol, rev-matching. Very quiet other than rumble heard and felt when inside and very close to vehicle. Can’t wait for winter time😈

Dude doesn't give a shit about stuff we all stress over. Thats because he still lives at home with two very loving parents, who still, well, love him. He's got way more self-confidence than either his looks or his brains justify. When you see doug, you see what a weirdo too much parental love can do. And you know what? I'm secretly envious. I want to be reborn a plain style-free jewboy, only child of Manfred and Ruth.

Well the tilt on the headlights are from my understanding supposed to counter act heavy weights in the trunk, as the lights will point more upwards blinding other drivers if you dont use this function. Most cars ive had used this function including my saab 9-3 vector which has both fogs and headlight tilt.
