Talking Re: Re: Legacy B4??

Great, thanks for the response Paul, it's just what I was hoping to hear as I need something fun that can also get my bike to the track.

This is why the Evo got discounted in favor of the STi (the WRX is slightly "soft" for my tastes, and by the time I void the warranty with AM goodies, I may as well just get the STi or B4).

BTW- the look on my salesman face when I showed him the SoA brochure w/2000lb tow limit on the STI and asked "This true?" was priceless.

I used to tow with a 95 Z28 LT1 6spd that I also AutoX'd until some 16yr old decided red-means-green and torpedoed my car.

I'm not sure I'm patient enough to wait for the B4 to hit our shores, so maybe I'll get the STi to tide me over till then...

...Or maybe I can get back to Kyoto...or at least have my fiancee send one over...Hmm...

Thanks again!

And I'm sure it's more than capable of towing your bike around.
