Yes the seat belt buzzer and the MANDATORY low beam lights all around 24/7/365 which seems like a waste of the HID's. Other then that I am happy. Nope my goal is to store it from when the first snowflake hits the ground to when ther last one leaves in the spring. My dealer claims that a little Stabil in the FULL fuel tank should be fine and NOT worry about flatspotting the tires from four OR more months of sitting. They did NOT suggest I jack up the car OFF the tires for that time frame.
As for holding its value. The 06 WRX Limited wagon (5-speed) lost $3000 after driving it off the one dealers lot to the others to buy/trade for my STI Limited. It only took one full week and 500 miles to do that. And geared differently well the wagon DID move out once I got above 2500 rpms where as the STI just slowly picks up speed. I will wait to meet other drivers with SPT to see what they say. Thanks again for all the replies so far!
