Oooh, that's more than a bumper. Did the deer appreciate the new pedestrian impact safety design?

Yea at 60 mph the Deer I hit went to many pieces over the new safety features. Have say I was surprised that the airbag didn't go off.

The reason it's going on its third bumper is the one currently on the car was a replacement due to a brick hitting it on its second day of ownership. So glad I spent that $500 on my deductible to get it fixed. Ugg
I'm thinking this car is possessed.

However, if you look, Impreza DOES have it's own forum since this site is basically for WRX/STI owners. You're saying that Forester shouldn't get their own forum, either, since it shares the Impreza platform?

Where does the madness end?!?!!??!!!!
THat's OK. They'll need a new URL soon or be shut down. Any forum with a trademarked name in the URL usually end up with cease and desist letters sooner or later.

subaruforester.org & legacygt.org been around 6 years or more, subaruoutback.org at least 8, I think. Maybe they're OK w/the dot org ending.

The Crosstrek continues to taunt me even after ordering my Forester :P Saving ~3-3.5K would be nice, but I have to keep telling myself that I need/want the extra space (and power-weight ratio) of the Forester Great looking Crosstrek, btw. DGM is my favorite color for them.

I remember when you posted about the brick. I was heartbroken.

Your plight reminds me of this vid (very safe for work and family):

Hey and I thought I was special having a new snazzy car to just have it soiled within days and months. Sheesh now it's just painful. Ha kidding.
Sorry to hear others getting that sinking stomach feeling. Don't wish it on anyone. Well at least my 210K Baja still excited to be driven. That car will always have a special place in my heart.

Ha I've heard that before. Too funny and hard to believe there's someone out there with breaking potential.
That's for sympathy. Greatly appreciated.

Oh and if anyone's concerned about the car having enough power, just ask the deer

Well, you're still correct, Advans are wheels too. Now if only Subaru's started rockin' Advan wheels with Advan tires.

How do these things lease? I am considering the possibility if downsizing my monthly payment, to use the extra funds for traveling more. I'd like to do yearly trips to Japan.

Yep, as stated above Advan's are both wheels and tires.

I only know this because I lust for Advan Model 5's. My favorite wheels of all time.
