mmm can't relate. I don't really pay attention to the ride quality of my rex. What was going through my mind as i drove away from the dealer was "wow! i have a wrx! everyone look out"
As for acceleration. The gas is delayed just a tad cuz it electronically controled. You don't really feel the pull 'til you get to his rev's unlike v8's. I never drove a mustang before but I drove a Sububan before... even with its weight it pulls pretty hard even at 1.5k rpm's.
Anyways... just wanted to say grats on ur 08 rex.
