Best Motoring International - New STI - Fast On 4

A Best Motoring focused on the new body Subaru STI, displaying it's amazing new chassis as well as performance in various conditions. Subaru admits that the STI is actually the rival of the BMW M3 and not necessarily the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. In the various tests, I was actually pretty impressed with the changes. Sometimes you always hear about a newer version of a car, but it being heavier with more safety equipment, and sometimes even less sporty, but not the case here.

After the segment featuring the STI, they had a great Miata segment, displaying various tests on Tsukuba Circuit. Wasn't that bad, I'm just amazed in the differences between the top of the line package Miata in Japan as opposed to the top of the line package in America (IE: America comes with Billistein shocks, better tires, etc. Japan, from what I've heard, those are optional).

All in all, not that bad of a movie, especially if you're considering purchasing a new NC Miata or a new STI.
