I'm not exactly a newbie, and some of you may remember this previous thread of mine:
Looking for advice: '06 WRX TR or RX-8 6MT?
I've literally been running on adrenaline since taking delivery earlier today just before noon. Definitely very pleased in every way with my new WRX TR: the purchasing experience at Pence Subaru was A+; my salesman Bill Fallon was straight forward an honest throughout the entire process; my wife and I were in-and-out in roughly 75 minutes; my new car looks amazing and moves like lightning!
The new 2.5L turbo engine in the '06 WRXs is a torque monster and makes the car a breeze to drive off-boost around town and on the highway. I took her along a few twisty backroads and there's definitely a lot less body roll compared to my former SVX. However, the driving position doesn't feel as *sporty* since I'm sitting more upright in a 4 door sedan compared to a low slung SVX.
Looking forward to SCCA D-stock autoX competition this year!
