Yeah, I test drove the RDX too, along with the Mazda CX-7. Both felt a little too front-drivey for my taste. Test drove a RAV4 v6 too. Nice acceleration, otherwise, felt like a POS--everything in the car felt cheap. The EX and the WRX stood head and shoulders above everything else as far as overall feel. I need to do a side by side comparison between a 09 WRX and an 09 STI. I like the styling of the STI more, and want the HID headlights, and if I can dial in the handling to feel more like a RWD vehicle via the DCCD, I'll probably go that route.
