    Haha they're extremely uncommon. I've seen other Americans here with WRXs and STis, but never any Germans. I see the occasional euro-spec Legacy, but not much else. The closest thing I've ever seen to a WRX has been an 06/07 2.5 RS wagon. But I kind of like that sense of individuality... these Germans give my WRX some pretty long looks sometimes

    Now, this is something that could DEFINITELY beat a WRX. These haven't arrived in America yet, and they're not even for sale over here in Germany. I live about 2 miles from the HQ of Mercedes-Benz, and saw these guys rolling around today.

    A pair of brand new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG's. The old 1950's gullwing SL resurrected. Bada**.

    Lucky you. How did you end up in Stuggart? I have a friend stationed in Berlin right now... are you military?

    One of my dreams is to go check out the Nurburgring, among many other things in Germany e.g. WWII sites.

    I came with my parents a couple years ago when they got stationed here--now I'm just going to college in Stuttgart this year. I think I'm headin' home next fall though. And thanks, I feel luck to have the opportunity.

    I assume you're fluent in German? That's cool. Have you had a chance to check out the Nurburgring? Or maybe some WWII sites?

    Well unfortunately no...not quite fluent. But I'm learning. Stuttgart is a really really diverse community with all the American forces here, so the University of Stuttgart has a huge selection of classes in not only German, but English as well.

    I've actually been toying with the idea of a trip to the Nurburgring more lately...I haven't been there yet. Every time I think of it being a great idea, I get all these terrible thoughts of me taking a turn too recklessly and going off into a wall. As smart of a driver as I believe I am, sometimes I just think I'd do something stupid. And if you do something really stupid, then my German insurance won't cover me, which would be a problem. A lot of people go to the Nurburgring and think they can crack out a "fast" time or something, but they just end up crashing. There's crashes every day, and roughly a dozen people die every year on public days. There's a reason it's called "green hell."

    Bah, I'll probably go in the spring or something and do a few laps lol. If I do, I'll put up some darn good pictures--one of my car fully intact after the drive.
