    I finally got one!

    Hello my fellow Subaru drivers.
    I am a proud owner of a new 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX STi.
    I test drove the WRX before the STi came out, and i was quite impressed, but it was missing something, so i waited. Waited for a car that had more. After a long process of elimination and test driving almost every sports compact or import car out there, from the Acura RSX down to the Nissan's 350Z, Sentra SER Spec-V, Mitsubishi's EVO8, Lexus IS300, Volkswagen R32 Golf, and Mazda's RX8. It came down to one car, the STi. After driving that car, i was sure i found what i was waiting for. Waiting long enough, years infact, i dropped 10grand and picked me up the car of my dreams.
