welcome! i skimmed through the forum and it was pretty amusing, laughed at some of the comments. a lot of people get real sensitive when you insult the focus st for some strange reason. around here it seems like they're attracting the wrong crowd too, a lot of cocky owners. before i traded in my wrx for my sti i had a 12 wrx (stage 3+) and i had some kid in an st with what appeared to be just a cbe and he was reeving at me giving me the eye. dont get me wrong i like the st and everything (obv i prefer subaru more) but every time i meet one of them it almost seems like they have to battle and justify their purchase take shots at wrx's. also every time they do they have the same 2 lines, "mpg and garbage interior". i always tell them if you care about mpg that much you've got the wrong class of car and if you care about interior buy an audi.

2014 sti 4 door (break in period)
People like that are everywhere on forums I find. I'm also heavily involved in writing digital camera reviews and that crowd is essentially the same. I've learned through that experience that people are very sensitive and want to justify their purchases or reasons for not getting something you did, and they'll go to great lengths to to do so. It's a no win situation when they present an argument, 99/100 times they don't have an open mind and won't listen to reason at all. I just move on these days and enjoy my life
If you don't want to talk about interior, you may be at the wrong place.

I bought my current car from a private seller but, when I do go shopping for my new car I'll be using Subaru of Kennesaw more than likely. Of all the dealers in the ATL metro area they have the best reviews.
I would buy from the dealer in Chattanooga if it wasn't for GA's silly ad valorem tax. They are basically trying to prevent out of state purchases in my opinion.
