    I used to have a friend that had a moonroof in his WRX... I hit my head on it. I'm only 5'11". But there's plenty of room in mine (sans moonroof)

    I just need business to stay good. I hope for all our sakes we don't double dip into recession!
    I'd definitely get the GT3RS. It's not because I'm a Porsche guy because the CS cars also kick butt. The new GT3RS is the best streetable racecar Porsche has ever made.

    And we are heading into a double dip. I work for IHS and you probably hear our Global Insight division quoted a lot in the news, and that's the message across the board. I predicted it myself even with my lowly bachelor's of econ a couple of years ago. It's the second wave of the housing crisis that's really going to get it going. It's already started, but it's going to get much worse. It'll be the people that are upper middle class that bought in the high markets, but suffered job losses when the economy first went south. They've stretched their money but are now running out and the foreclosure rate is going to go way up again. This time around, it won't be cheap houses, it'll be many in the $500k-1.5m range.

    Never sat in an 02-07 with moonroof, only my '04 STi that didn't have one. I had plenty of room in that car.

    I have absolutely no issues with my height or the sunroof in my car...

    IMO, any double dip is being caused by the party of greed trying to kill off the middle class entirely (just look at Wisconsin, Ohio, etc. and the move to force middle class incomes much lower while giving HUGE tax breaks to the wealthy). If you have no money to spend, you can't spend it and that's the problem with corporations keeping huge profits and not wanting to share the wealth, so-to-speak (like lowering wages and/or moving jobs out of country and expecting a tax break to do it). The housing market at this point is largely a side effect. The more people lose houses the the bigger the glut on the market and the lower the prices will keep going. It doesn't matter how low the interest rates are if you have no job and no credit and your retirement was wiped out (while the same banks that caused much of this are making record profits now).

    I have absolutely no issues with my height or the sunroof in my car...
    How long are your legs? It's probably dependent on torso height versus leg length in many cases. I wear 32" pants, for example at 6'2" (my seat is not all the way back). Someone who had 34-36" legs could probably have much more overall height with no head clearance issues and still have more room for their legs by moving the seat back all the way.
