You're right about the enormous moonroof being a unique joy. Unfortunatley (and I know this point is plastered all over the place... so I won't go on about it) you can't get the moonroof in the XT without also accepting an AT and leather... neither of which interest me in the slightest. I'll never understand the reasoning behind that decision. Now... can a dealer cut a moonroof into an XT? I know some dealers do that for other makes and it's all under warranty. Is it a Subaru option, as well?
Oh... and that was a good point about the cornering of the WRX vs. the torquey speed of the XT. It's something I'll have to take into serious consideration.
