What could have been great--what could have been the "grown up" STI or EVO--is instead another lukewarm luxo coupe. I wish that MB, Audi and BMW could get it through their heads that there are customers for quick, feelsome steering, lightning fast turn-in, close-ratio gears, AWD you can powerslide, AND full leather interior with ventilated seats and all the high end trimmings.
