Default December 2007 Issue

I just got it today... pretty happy whenever I get my issue.

Nice article on the new 2008 STi. Really appreciate sharing about the Laguna Seca experience and showing track data. The article was nice but brief (2 half pages). You got to interview Hiroshi Mori, STi project manager (awesome!) and... YOU ONLY ASK HIM 4 QUESTIONS????

Other article I read was the Chris Atkinson interview. I'm really happy to hear from Chris... kinda screamed how old the interview was as he was talking about "hope for the 2nd half of 2007" (and Rally GB 07 just finished). But nonetheless, it was really appreciated.

But hookay... I love the mag for the dedication to Subiness. This, and the fact that as the only Subie mag you get sneak/privileged access to new subies, new subie products, etc... makes Subiesport a unique mag. I'm in the camp that would prefer more of a "Time magazine of Subies" vs a "Maxim of Subies".

PS... I agree that is ONE LUCKY READER. "BBBBbbbbbbbbbbbBBBBbbbbB" ain't just for imitating the boxer rumble.

Glad you liked the issue. We had a chance at the last minute to get our hands on a pre-production STI--after the magazine was done. So, we ripped out the pages that contained a preview of the new model and put in the full review. Hence, the shortness of it. Though I think we really covered most of the points, just with shorter prose.

Can't say which one that is, but unlikely. We drove ours at Laguna Seca in Monterey California. There are about 8 pre-production units in the US right now.
