The Subaru WRX is clearly outstanding on wet pavement -- it was so impressive on wet pavement that I decided to drive the WRX on dry pavement and experience the difference. I have to report that there was very little variance between wet and dry driving for this all wheel drive gem. This was far different from the other high performance cars I drove later in the day.

The blue paint color is absolutely stunning! (Blue is my favorite color -- yes, my first car WAS blue.)

From any angle, the Subaru WRX is an awesome car. The only improvement I would make is to have a TWO-DOOR version of the WRX. (Unfortunately, Subaru now makes only four door vehicles.)
