To make this story short my mom has always been a die hard BMW Xi fan. She bought a new one in 1997 and later sold it for a new durango in 2000. Two months ago she was fishing for another BMW Xi, when I told her she should test drive the new 05 gt limited sedans. The test drive made her fall in love with scoobies. So anyway its the fastest car shes ever driven. She thinks if its more expensive than the WRX's and has more horsepower stock its got to be faster right. Plus you gotta consider she has average female knowledge about cars. I was on the freeway with my dad, my sister's boy friend and my winter skiing junk when my mom pulls up to me on I-84 heading to portland. I was doing about 70; we looked over to see my mom and sister giving us the stare, so I shifted into 4th and hit it. My mom puched her car and I pulled on her the whole way staying in fourth gear to about two car lenghts at 115 then I let off, its funny because my mom gave me the ol ricer by at about 125. I've driven her car quite a bit and it feels pretty fast, even though its the ol auto. All in all the 05 gt subaru's are definately great cars. Its a good story to tell my buddies about racing the ol lady.
