    So true Ray. The curb weight of most cars today (especially luxury cars) has just ballooned up, and a lot of them really do need 300+hp just to feel "sporty" but they still just aren't fun to drive. Anyone who has driven an old CRX can tell you how much fun that car was even with an anemic engine and barely any equipment. Of course a lot of that has to do with modern safety features, but I kind of yearn for the days when a 3000lb car was "heavy" and an in dash cappuccino maker wasn't like mandatory standard equipment (my mr2 turbo is 2700lbs and doesn't even have cup holders, who needs coffee to wake up in the AM when you can hit 60 in 5 seconds or less!) It sometimes takes me an hour just to show folks how to use their cars these days what with all the nav, bluetooth, and various electronic gizmos. I can tell a lot of them just are not going to get it and really paid for more crap than they needed to if they thought about it. Not to mention, all this stuff is going to break, malfunction, or be obsolete one day.... That's one of the things I love about the WRX, they keep it simple, and keep the focus on the driving experience. If a manufacturer wants performance oriented buyers its important that the target market is going to have fun driving it. Who cares what it looks like on a spec sheet, for me it has to be a car you can connect with when driving it. Look at the BRZ, every day somebody comes in and says "oh if only they made it with more than 200hp" but little do they know, on the right track that light little car will spank a 320hp C5 vette no problem.

    I had an MR2T, about 12 years ago! What a great little car. It was a '91, before Toyota fixed the snap oversteer issue...you had to pay attention to the environment, and respect the vehicle's dynamics!

    Cool, SD-GR has one too. They are great little cars! As for snap oversteer, I just threw some 9" wide wheels and sticky tires on the back and that seemed to do it, its pretty much impossible to break traction on dry roads now. I think the snap oversteer phenomenon is drastically overstated in general. Even with the stock 91 suspension/tire size you have to be acting very stupid to spin it out, but yeah it's not forgiving if you don't respect it.

    I use to have an 02 rsx-s until I totaled it at the end of last summer. I now have an 02 wrx wagon. I absolutely loved my rsx, it was an all around awesome car! That being said, I now love my wrx... sometimes I do miss the rsx, and I almost got another one after I totaled it, but I went with the wrx. At the end of the day though, if I could go back, I would still get a wrx. But, either way you cant go wrong!
