Just the other day I got to look at the new '05 turbo. What a small hood scoop. The color schemes are much nicer for '05, but other than a turbo, everything is the same I think. So why is it that a turbo Baja is two seconds slower in a 0-60 time than a Forester or Impreza?
I'm going by a 0-60 time of like 7.3 seconds that I heard. Is it true? That is not a very big seller for me if it's true. Looks like the wife will have to keep her MY03 Baja for a while longer. Brian
