    Man that's awesome, post pics when you get it! What color did you go with? I think the wrx will be a lot better in MI too with all your weather you get there

    Funny how you wrote that. At first sentence or two thought you went with the GLI.

    The AWD for winter driving definitely played a part in deciding between the two. Both the GLI and the WRX feel nice when driving them separately. It was only when driving the two cars back to back at the end of my car shopping when I noticed that the GLI just felt a little boring compared to the WRX. The A/C vents make a ton of noise in the GLI when they are turned all the way up too.

    Will definitely post pics when the WRX arrives. I ordered the WR Blue (just couldn't bring myself to buy a Subaru in any other color).

    When I had my Sirocco years ago VW's idea of AC was a joke.

    Oh and a WRX with snow tires is not short of amazing. I was just cruising around this winter like a cat on carpet.

    I was wondering if snow tires where needed OR if all seasons for the winter would be good enough, Im in Denver and the snow comes then melts and is dry for a while before the next round of storms. I was thinking of getting Summer Tires for the Summer and then all Seasons for the winter... what kind of tires do you use on your car?

    Stock Dunlop suck in wet cold let alone ice but are pretty good above 40 degrees F. I will use those until well worn. In winter I use Dunlap WinterMaxx.

    I've always gone with blizzaks for my winter tires. I'm going to try to go all-seasons this year though just to save on space and I no longer have a 30 min commute to work.

    Blizzaks and Wintersports are among the best.

    Would you rather eat a steak dinner with a fork and knife or a spork?

    I used blizzaks for four winters and they were great the first two winters and pretty good the next two. I'll be getting nokians this winter.

    Steak is steak.

    For what it's worth, I never felt unsafe running my blizzak tires on warmer winter days. Is that why you're considering all-season instead?

    I bought the Xi3 based on great reviews. I did my first ~700 miles on them without any seriously bad weather, but they held up well in a couple of days of deep slush. No drama when warm either.

    actually its not that I would feel unsafe.. its that with snow tires at least with my experience on dry pavement they don't last long and they are not as sticky on the road, When I had my 1999 M3 I was running Dunlap Wintersport 3D M3, if my memory is correct and they were amazing in the snow, I never thought a RWD M3 would be so fun in the snow until I put those on... But on dry pavement they felt slippery IMO... I had Goodyear All Seasons triple tread (I think that was the name) on my wifes mini van and they sucked in the snow so I was just thinking maybe with an AWD car with all seasons I would get better performance with more mixed driving in the winter in Colorado, and in the Snow.... because the Rex is AWD I would just fine without winter but IDK.... I might just get some winter tires and deal with it and then get a set of summer for the rest of the year...
