    At least the roads are almost clear so I can drive my STI again. I've been driving my old Ford in the snow. There was a 4' high packed snowbank at that corner at the end of my driveway and I wanted to get the Ford parked out of the way so I could get the STI out of the driveway. I went over/through the snowbank without even slowing down and then went along the side of the mountain with barely a slip and parked the truck out of the way. My Ford is a beast! I'm never worried about where I put it because in 4 low it'll go through anything. Having a 10k winch for backup doesn't hurt.

    You should go off roading with me some time. I don't know how much if at all you've done it, but I can show you a few things. The Ford is better than my G-wagen was off-road. I haven't found anything I can't go through yet, and I've been trying!

    On the WRX, hill assist cannot be disabled. But I saw in the owners manual for my 2010 that it can be disabled on the STI. I assume it can be disabled on the 2011 STI as well so check it out in the owners manual. Oh and congrats on the new STI!

    I posted a link with a how to for 2009 STI's. Try it, let us know if it works.

    There is also talk about being able to adjust the dealers being able to adjust the sensitivity. It's all in the link I posted.

    I am a new WRX owner and I dislike the hill assist. And its slow, I constantly feel it holding me back.
