    Awesome, dude!

    I'll tell you, you will love having a hatch. My little SVT can hold A LOT of **** in it with the seats folded down.

    I have a 99 M-Roadster and just got a 2011 WRX Sedan. The BMW's do not have superior paint (the front end of my M has so many pits from road debris- and I only put 11k miles on it over 12 years!). I wish I would've put on a clear bra when I bought it. Also, both cars drive differently. The straight 6 3.2L M motor is so linear that it feels almost electric (torque available across the range) and the knuckle dragging on pavement seat position with the exhaust just a few feet behind your ears is pure driving bliss. The WRX on the other hand, has this rush from 3k rpm on up that is mind blowing. Love them both but the WRX is way more practical.
    Here are some old pics. She's still totally stock.


    I start her once in a great while in winter as well (this is a warm start btw):

    I'm considering it, though my car is merely a BMW product.

    I just need something a little more practical and the WRX seems to fit the bill. We'll see, I may test drive one soon.

    hehe yeah it's in my sig. I love my MINI to death but it's a little too small and it's not a good road trip car. I need something my fiancee and I can pack our stuff into and head out of town without an issue. With my MINI, it's just a little finicky for that sort of work...

    Man, my wife and I got lucky I guess. We were on the market for a new car for her since someone totaled her previous car. I did a search and a local dealer had a 2011 WRX on the lot. Not only that, they had an 08 STi as well. When we got there, they were both on the display pad out front. Well, my wife got the 2011 WRX, and some how, the dealer talked me out of my 04 WRX, and into the 08 STi. So, we took all their cars off their display pad.

    So after about a lovely 4.5 hours at the dealership we finally got home at about 7:30. A little too dark for pics. I'll try my hardest to get some pics up for you guys tomorrow.

    I gotta say I absolutely LOVE this car.

    As of now though, I am about to pass out. I'll post more tomorrow.

    Make sure you measure your tread depths, 2/32nd's is the max difference in tread depth before you could cause problems with the differential.
