I thought about it for a while, and realistically I want to pay off a lot more of the wagon before I trade it in. I'm thinking in a year or two. Then with the trade in and a fat down payment, I could get much lower payments than I'm doing now. Oh, but that tranny feels so good. When I first drove an STI, I hadn't learned to drive a Subaru yet, having only driven two WRX's. Now that I've altered my driving style it was so much more fun to drive one. The salesman was cool about it too. Told me to drive it like it was my own, just like the last one did. He didn't bust out any powerslides, though. That guy was crazy. I did play around with the DCCD and launching. Think about that when you buy your brand new STI and baby it through the break-in period.
