Traded in my ' 01 Xterra on this ' 02 WRX hatchback. Nice to drive something fast for a change. When you drive SUV's for many years( this was my second) you tend to forget how much fun driving can be given the right vehicle. This was all brought back to me a year ago when a friend bought a Cooper S. After driving it a few times I was hooked on "fun" again. But a Mini would be just too small for us ( canoeing, skiing, mtbing, etc), the closest Dealership 100 miles away, & AWD is great for all the snow here in winter. Snowed today & -11deg C tonight. I'm sooo lovin the heated seats too
Also got some winter rims with Michelin Alpin Pilot snow tires. They go on in a week or two.
BTW - here is my "X" as they say..
