OT, but the US has more wilderness as a percentage of land mass than Australia does. The image of Australia is somewhat red and dusty, but that's only part of it (much of it is tropical also). Blame Subaru, Paul Hogan and the Australian Tourism Commission for that.
There are quite a few WRXs around, but only really in Sydney and Melbourne (I've not noticed any in the other state capitals).
If you were in Canberra a few months ago, you would have seen around 250 WRXs in various stages of tune...
