    Jeff's Auto Repair is probably a little drive for you but they have serviced lots of odd cars of mine and do good work.
    Find a low-mileage one-owner unmodified '04/'05 and you're golden.

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
    Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
    Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
    Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    Parked next to these 4 WRB WRX/Sti guys by the Regal Cinemas in Redmond on my way into a movie...

    ...and when I came out they had moved to the next row over and this guy had parked next to me. I guess if my fellow Subie owners don't want to park next to me, at least my twin will.

    I have an 02 wagon but i want a BRZ. Do you like your BRZ way more than your wagon?

    Tough question...I was just thinking about that yesterday when looking at these photos from a trip to Winthrop in 2011 in the WRX -



    Took the same trip a few weeks back in the BRZ -


    I think the best way to answer your question is this - They are completely different types of driving enjoyment. The WRX was fun because it was fast, had decent handling and had confidence inspiring AWD. The BRZ is such a better driver's car. I feel more in tune with the connection between the road and the car. It handles much better than the WRX (even though my WRX had excellent tires and the BRZ has the crappy stock Michelin Primacy HP tires). It's ability to quickly change directions with minimal body roll makes it such a blast on canyon roads. There are some mods on the drawing board for the next couple years; wheels/tires; intake and full exhaust; lowering springs/struts. Subaru built a very well balanced platform for future modifications. I'm very excited for the future of me and my BRZ

    So do I miss having AWD and turbo WRX? Yes.
    Do I love the driving experience of the BRZ? Even more than I miss the AWD and turbo

    Old thread I see, but figured I'd chime in on the roll call. 2013 WRB Hatch in Mukilteo, WA (greater Seattle) hoping there any some meets or something that go on in the area. Would love to meet other Subie-fans!
