What I can tell you is that they are very fast and handle like a dream with the AWD.

No I haven't yet.I know what they will do My wife works for Subaru.I have seen many at the local track.Most of the here run in the 12's all night long!!!

The S60R is very close to the STI.

My car is VERY slow at the moment.I had to throw a Non-HO motor in there for now.Im working on building a good motor.

Money is very tight so it is taking a very long time!!

I recently bought on 05 S60 R, 6 speed. Before this I had a 5 speed 99 Eclipse GSX with moderate mods. The R fells just as fast, especially in the higher rev range. The cornering and handling is amazing in advanced mode for a 4 door sedan- I got the 18" wheels. I needed the room that the Vovlo had, and you cant beat the price for the features and perfomance that you get. Had to have AWD, other 4 doors were too small or more expensive.

Gripes- Radio becomes almost impossible to read in sunlight. No trunk release button in the car. Not a fan of the headlight washers. I realize its a sedan, but NO BOOST GAUGE! Why put cup holders so high behind the shifter...for automatics maybe thats OK. Not that anyone will drink in there anyway...
