Personally I think its quite slow. Nice on the windy bits but there's not really much there as far as straight line and top speed are concerned. I think its more a matter of how it feels rather than how fast you are actually going. Will also depend on past experiences too. Having driven my brothers full forged and blueprinted Subaru STI with 850nM of Torque and 250kW at all four wheels I find the TS to be a bit of a bore in comparison. But for daily use its lovely. Got enough up and go to make gaps in traffic but lets be honest, they're not going to win many races. Even the V6 isn't that quick. A lot quicker than a TS, but still over 6secs to 100km/h which by modern performance standards is good, but not lightning. So I guess its really down to your own perception and past experiences.
