    Forester XT vs Acura TL

    First let me start by saying that I got my Forester 3 days ago. I traded my Blue 03 WRX for it.
    I have a black Forester XT, 5 speed Manual Transmission.

    I was first behind the TL and he took off screeching his tires and all. I did not want to race since I only have 100 miles on her, but 1 wont hurt
    I caught up and was able to catch the next light next to the TL. I had 2 other passengers (brothers) and they had 2 total. I knew it was on when the TL started to creep up while the other traffic lights turned yellow.
    When the green light finally came I launched at 3k and by the end of 3rd I had at least 2 Bus lengths on him.

    (Please note that the TL screeched his tires and I believe that when he saw how far ahead I was, he gave up)

    I just wanted a chance to see the look on their faces when they saw that an SUV killed them. I must start taking my camcorder with me to record these. I almost had to stop afterwards because my brothers and I couldnt stop laughing.

    I really like my new ride.

    More important - why would you race in a car with only 100 miles?

    Forester gives you the boost alot earlier and there is virtually no lag. One thing I noticed is that the Forester feels way too slow when the air conditioning is on. The WRX felt better with the air on.

    it probably has a stronger air then the wrx. Its more a wrx with some luxury car. You have a manual probably and you didnt get the lether package and all that.

    I rode in a Forester XT tonight to compare it to my Legacy GT. The XT has a good amount of torque too, and I think a race between an XT and a WRX would be a good one to watch.

    i was actually on the balance b/w the xt and wrx. but since the wrx had better handling, better gas mileage, and looked a little better. i went that direction. also a couple grand cheaper didnt hurt.

    XT is incredible. sleeper to the tenth power. nice interior too.
    but the front end is a little too boring. nice kill though.
