    Its too bad you can only get a WRX wagon with the 2.0. I would have taken an STI wagon in a heartbeat.
    Never stop learning.

    You could get 2.5rs badging . Im starting to think New Jersey would be the last place i'd take ANY car. Come to Ct I was doing about 80 in broad daylight the other day , cop pulls up next to me ( I almost sh!t myself) looks at me and proceedes to blow by me . Then again I don't have the rexor yet. Anyway I hope things work out for you, it's pretty messed up you can't drive your own car without getting stalked.

    That's happened to me tons of times since I got to school in Newark. Gotten pulled over lots of times and the cops just tell me it's because of all the thefts; they have to make sure. I don't mind too much.

    After having my share of 'police escorts' I've learned that there are places to drive fast and there are places not to. I usually drive fast on parts of the turnpike that I know for a fact are almost never patrolled. I also will zip around in towns that I know people on the police force. It also doesn't hurt that I used to work for the government and still have my business cards and badges and FOP cards very visible at all times!

    I know what you mean. I have 9 FOP cars in my wallet right now, and I do know alot of cops, but it is just plain difficult to open it up anywhere up here (North Jersey). We have some twistie roads, but when you get on one of those there is almost always a grandma doing 25mph in the 40 zone in front of you. I tried to go on a nice twistie road drive three times yesterday on three different twistie roads and finally gave up. I've been to other states and most of the roads are barren with barely any cars on them. N.J. is getting way to congested.

    I think you need to come up to New England for a weekend and drive some twisties in VT and NH.

    That would be fun. I traveled up to NH earlier in the year and took notice of all the unpopulated twisties

    I am looking forward to an end of run up there, especially since I haven't been able to get up there all summer.

    i live in nj and gust about to turn 17, insurance for myself (on my own policy, which would be insane) would be close to 4-5 thousand a year, even with a god damn junker. if eveyr works out i will have a rex under my father name so hopefully everything goes as planned.

    where in NJ you guys located? If you are in nothern jersey, i can show you a few really nice PA roads with some serious twisties, and no cops. - Same goes for some really long stretches of road that you can open the car up on without worrying about traffic or cops.

    Ive had my STi for 6 months now, and i have NEVER gotten a police escort, and i drive a minimum of 20mph over the speed limit at all times (except around towns and other hazardous areas - gotta keep it safe!)
