    To me they look like they will tip over on the first sharp turn. They do look okay though.

    I got my STi for only a couple thousand more than what they wanted for an 09 WRX premium. about 33 thousand out the door for a brand new 09. Sadly I wasn't able to jump on that smoking 08 STi deal. But yeah most dealerships were asking for 28-31 for a 09 WRX Premium. So, even if I could have only picked one up for 29 thats only four thousand and for the money I get a better turbo, suspension, transmission, brakes, and diffs. Plus the interior isn't half bad either

    The only American made sport compact I would even look at...Saleen, Inc.

I then asked him if I could see this amazing thing and he said that unfortunately his brother ended up hitting a tree and totaling it. I dunno about that whole thing beating a Corvette there ..
    My buddy has on of the TC models...pretty quick and i think they put put 260 hp.

    Really want to get a stage 2 wrx up against him.

    Heck, no. I traded in my 05 Aerio for my 09 WRX. If you want to talk about driving sailboats, well, that was just the sail. And, I still hit 1.04 g in very low-key autocrossing with it.

    The WRX, I'm glad to say, hasn't yet even protested any of the corners; of course, I've only been on the street, so far.

    Honda, Your correct, I was looking at this car pretty hard for awhile back in late '07 early '08, But since I live in Maine I figure a AWD is best. I think 13.99 is the best pass any of the mags got it(the Turbo SS) to run at 102.??mph, I can't remeber which one but the best pass for an '09 WRX was 13.5 most are saying they have a hard time launching the vehicle and a roll in best and I think they are post like 13.7-8's so unless someone misses a gear the WRX all day long!!

    I think she was talking about the cobalt, but the new cobalt sss is supposed to have a Nurburing (sp?) tuned suspension so they can handle.

    the tc/ss is a great car all around a total turn around from the sc/ss. the tc/ss is quick and response well to mods and handles great once you get rid of the boat anchor wheels.

    I don't think they are. I'm not sure if there is even a Pontiac dealership in Royal Oak, MI anymore.

    My "Bobcat" package came from SLP (kind of an STI-ish tuner branch for GM, but standalone. They made some special edition cars for GM in the past, like the Firehawk)
