hey hey ya'll, talk me into a suby haha. I've had a jeep wrangler for the past 5 years through college, and now that I'm all graditated, I'm thinking about getting something a little more, uh, road friendly. I've always loved the wrx's and their rally spirit, and took one for a test drove the other week. wow. when you're used to driving a 190hp motor ontop of 32" studded chunks of rubber, well, the wrx felt like greased lightning. I'm sold. thing is, I love my little jeepjeep! I get all excited about getting a new suby, but all mellow when i think about selling the jeep. (yes i need to sell it to afford a new car).
ah, talk some sense into me. I've been figuring lately that while the jeep was an awesome college car, it sure is hot, loud, and thirsty. about like driving a covered wagon at 60 miles an hour. makes those 3 hour trips to see my girlfriend who's still at school a bit uncomfortable, and kinda sweaty drive on the way to work. And honestly I haven't even taking the thing into much mud lately which is what the thing is for, isn't it?
the wrx on the other hand, much more fun on the blacktop, but is still quite at home in the unpaved terrain. sure gets better than 15mpg, AC would be welcome (jeep has it, but the engine has a hard enough time), I can actually hear music over the road noise, ooooh and cruise control, wow.
and honestly, man i love feel of a nimble vehicle. drove a 280zx for a couple years in high school, and have missed the nimble handling in curves ever since...
well, theres my intro :-p haha.... reckon I'm just thinking outloud. the more i think about it, the more it makes sense to get a subie :-p I've been eyeing a couple of wr blue ones on some NC lots
