I doubt anyone remembers this thread from almost a year ago. But for
anyone who does, I appreciated the responses and I finally bought a car. I
got the subaru wrx (i'm not trying troll, i still think the a4 is one of
the most beautiful cars on the road). It came down to 350z and wrx, and I
got an offer I couldn't refuse on the wrx for $1k under invoice. Anyway, I
just think it's kind of funny, because in the final hours of trying to
make a decision, I actually remembered and tracked down this thread on
google to try to recapture whatever my original sense was of all these
cars. And I was surprised by how much my taste and knowledge of car stuff
has changed since then.
Way to go Swen, you got the WRX STI though right?
My wife traded her high mileage, used and abused '97 2.5 GT for a new Legacy
LS, tried to talk her into the WRX or at the very least, another GT but she
wouldn't have it. The GT was my plaything when I wasn't driving my primary
ride (a Dodge 2500) so I had to go get myself a new rocket.
FWIW, I just got my new A6 2.7T Silver/Ebony, loaded - Premium, Luxery,
Sport, cold weather, 5-spoke AS, Bose (ick.) I am now a member of the Audi
crowd. Sure, it's a full second slower than the WRX in 0-60, but it is,after
all, an Audi.
The Suby dealer told me that in 2005 or 2006, they're coming out with a 3.0
I-6 twin turbo Legacy. I can't recall what he said on the HP but it was
something along the lines of 300 or 340+
