We seen a few different wrx's today

Also went to test drive an Audi A3
S-line at the San Juan dealership. Nice vehicle but a bit pricey. They had a TDI one that gets close to 40mpg so my wife wants one.

The A3 was one that I considered before the WRX, but it didn't seem like enough car for the money. For FWD and 200 hp why not get the GTI and save some cash. Everytime I see a Jetta sportwagen I want to get one. Especially as a TDI to get some 40mpg action.

The one I looked at had awd or quattro, s line package, and a bit more horsepower. I was just curious about the vehicle. My brother had owned some Audis and they've had a good motorsports backing as they were once dominant in rally. They also seemed a bit more luxurious than a VW.

Oz, you said your boss has a Porsche Carrera 4s right?

Some guy in a black one cut me off this morning. In 6 miles he made 22 lane changes and did not use a turn signal once. A damn idiot indeed.

Yes he also has a Jaguar v10 sport (black), a 06ish GTO 6.0 (blue), and a couple of Harleys. Oh yeah a bran-new F-150 twin turbo(brown), he's usually in a hurry. Said he'd like an STi but an older bug eye, so he can drive the back roads.

Its a nice car, seen it again today. This time slower and turn signals
But as a daily driver at 7:30am in the valley... yikes.

Oh and its a fast car, I had a little trouble keeping up from time to time. Haha.

Were there a lot of people last night?

I got home after work and drove out to a dealership to test drive the Scion FR-S (same car as BRZ)

What a fun car to drive. The seats are like from version 3-4 STI. The handling is precise, and smoooth. I didn't really get on the gas much, but the 6 speed transmission was great. Imagine a car about as low as a corvette zr1. Length of miata, and.better handling than a m3. And they have a military rebate.

But they couldn't selling it right now, because they have to allow potential customers the oppurtunity to see and operate it. Which is understandable I guess.

My wife also seen a silver BRZ on trenton near bert Ogden, with 60 day tags, and no dale gas stickers and crap on it. Possiblyba regional representative visiting.

Unfortunately not. But I'm willing to watch and learn and hold a random socket and stand in the way.

Global RallyCross is on ESPN2 at 7pm!

They've got the new Subaru Puma rally team in its debut event.
That Sverre guy is a beast behind the wheel, so I want to see how that goes.


I'm probably headed to Harlingen today to drive the FR-S again.
