And then, when we pull the cars out of the garage, the projector gives us movie night. Great for Super Bowl parties and kids movies when they wanna have friends over. Oh - and playing Tiger Woods Golf on the Wii. Or NFL Training Camp. Or just about anything you want a really big screen for!

    I'm just saying that my garage is where the cars sleep, for sure, but that's not all we do with it.

    Love the avatar, BTW.
    I wish you were my neighbor! I'd be all over that big screen playing Wii in your garage...yeah screw the tennis ball idea!

    Whoa it just occurred to me how I actually used my sunroof for NOT cosmetic reasons: fresh air. I don't yet know about the WRX, but the Matrix and the RX330 are impossible to have any one window open - the air reverberation beats your eardrums to death. So, we crack open the sunroof and turn the A/C to not recirculating. That gives the air a pass-through and it's super effective.

    ...Wish I would have thought of that before I ordered!! I don't know if that alone is worth $4k, but at least I would have considered it...

    Yeah, open sunroof > open windows for air when highway driving. You can actually have a conversation too.

    Ordered a 2012 SWP Limited Sedan, loved the black leather with red stitching, besides I work for chase and we get the cars at dealer invoice minus 2% ( Subaru VIP FTW! ) so I figurued why not I couldn;t justify the 8000 more for an STI with roughly 40 more HP. Id rather spend that cash on mods and be faster than an STI.

    Here we go again...

    But you still won't handle or brake better...or have better drivetrain reliability (transmission).

    in his defense, he didnt say anything about those, he just said faster. but if he meant faster on a closed circuit racetrack, then i guess maybe not

    Valid point...he did ONLY say faster. My argument is invalid. I'll just do the same amount of money worth of mods to my STI then, and then still be faster

    and have a ton more torque! no need to get all defensive though, us WRX owners know we are the inferior ones for choosing the WRX instead of the STI.

    LMAO I love my base model WRX and us WRX owners are not inferior for not buying an STI. First I have smoked a lot of modded STIs in a straight line and also my car is no slouch on a road course either. Doing the proper suspension and bushing setup you can easily hang with an STI. Oh yeah forgot the most important mod of all is the driver's mod. Do not worry I always wave when I pass people. lulz
