    1. I hate Honda's
    2. I refuse to buy a 2 seater
    3. there are no other half decent turbo hatches
    4. VW doesn't count, the 1.8 is annoying, GTI's got fat, and did I mention I'd rather have poor-ish interior quality than electronics that go completely haywire?
    5. I refuse to buy FWD (Yet another reason to stay away from GTI's- the R32 is a Golf R32, Not technically a GTI)
    6. Couldn't find a mazdaspeed 6 =/

    Key part MOST who have responded to this is my use of the words "a bit" ie driven hard a bit and/or a track day here and there without major break downs because the clutch get dropped hard or we get a 12inch snow storm a few times a year and I HAVE to be in the office.

    You'll be fine man, just keep up with the maintainence, don't tear through gears, and launching is really hard on the drivetrain...

    Performance for value is why I bought another STI.

    You guys are welcome to come any time.....

    Best of luck to you!




    Maybe I won't mention that I finally filed my taxes and got a fat return and I'm thinking it's time to drop a few grand and bring the 911 up into the 600 WHP/WTQ range. No, I'll probably just keep that to myself...
