    here's my list, in reverse chronological order just for kicks:

    2013 Subaru WRX
    2010 Toyota Prius
    2008 Ford Mustang GT
    2007 Nissan Altima
    2004 Nissan Titan
    2004 Honda Pilot
    2003 Jeep Wranger Rubicon (still own, purchased in 2008)
    1999 Chevy Blazer
    1998 Pontiac Grand Am
    1993 Buick Century
    1989 Ford Taurus
    1989 Mercury Topaz
    1988 Ford Escort EXP

    also in the mix were two motorcycles; Kawasaki Vulcan 900 and Yamaha Roadstar (1700). I liked all my cars for different reasons. The one I miss the most is the Nissan Titan. I'd love to take an EXP out for a spin again. That car took me to New York and back a couple of times.

    2003 Jeep Rubicon, special zombie apocalypse edition

    Yeah, looking at my records, I might be closer to 15-20K for mine. I sure love how the car feels with new tires on it.

    I previously drove an 08 SRT Jeep. while the WRX isn't as fast in a straight line, it's nice to be back in a car. I liked the Jeep because it was pretty rare and you could use all of it's power on the street if the mood took you. what I didn't like was the cost to maintain it out of warranty and the fuel expense.

    going fast in the Jeep was a little scarier, the WRX makes me more confident when getting on it. in a perfect world I'd own both.

    Interesting how many BMW owners migrate to WRX! Former e46 M3 owner here.

    What's the main allure for BMW guys? For your average 3-series drive, it would be a distinct drop in things like "quality materials, amenities, cachet", etc. Is it the perception of lower cost to own, more performance/dollar spent?

    my 2004 WRX is my first car
    that may explain why i'm all gaga over it all the time

    Never needed a car until about two years ago when we moved to the countryside. my dad 'gave' me his 2000 camry -- which i had to give back when I bought the shoopster :/ . It drove like a sofa in a tank on bed of marshmallows -- smooth, solid and comfy (still does) because he coddled it, he did maybe 15 miles a day from indoor garage to indoor garage.

    Ultimately, a BMW of any type is made for drivers. It isn't just a slogan to say it is the Ultimate Driving Machine. BMW does a great job at intangibles like driving dynamics that don't necessarily translate into a brochure.
    I think Subaru does a pretty good job at the same thing. They make an exciting product at a lower cost, and specifically targets people with an active lifestyle.

    For me the change from my BMW was for a few reasons. Reliability is one of them, no doubt. The performance of the BMW was better but also different. i thoroughly enjoyed the relentless pull of the engine in that car. I mostly wanted a more simple vehicle. Subarus are like going back in time as far as technology goes. My BMW had a warning chime for everything. Every mod you do requires extra caution because the cars computer is so touchy. My Subaru is very stripped down and basic. I love the manual seats and having to grab my own seatbelt. If you haven't been in an e92... they have an arm hat hands you your seatbelt. It was really dumb. The only way to disable it was to pull the fuse which also turned off the passenger airbags and turned on a warning light that couldn't go away I admire German engineering but they can often take it too far. My WRX may not be as good dynamically but i can make it better with some easy mods and still have great reliability and a great car to go skiing in. When i traded in the rear wheel drive beemer in Colorado the subaru dealership looked at it like it was something they had never seen. I think they shipped it to California to try and sell there and get away from the snow. haha

    I have also noticed that many BMW owners had GTIs in their past. Is that true of anyone here. On the BMW forums it was full of people always wandering why so many switched from GTIs to 335is. kinda weird.
