So for the past four months or so I've been car hunting. I owned a 07 350z is undoubtedly a great car, but from a practicality stand point it fails miserably. After looking at the Mini Clubman, MS3, and both 08 / 09 WRX wagons..... the 09 WRX won hands down.
I thought I was going to miss my Z as I previously considered this a downgrade in straight line performance and cornering ability... but so far it's been a blast! I've been nice to her so far, a little over 500 miles now and I've been pretty darn easy on the throttle.
My motorcycles are my toys but the car is something I need to drive everyday. Fun, reliable, and spacious... can't beat that.
