That's messed up man, I'd be so mad if someone tried to give me a ticket in my driveway... I'm not sure if it was Watkins or not he was in the k-9 SUV and had the dog in there

Gotta love new guys always out to make a name. A couple years ago i was in my 06 Denali that was tinted and got pulled over for what the cop said was suspicious driving. Cause apparently stopping at stop signs and going to speed limit is suspicious where i live. He still said nothing about the tint tho. But i wasnt real happy when i was literally 300 yards from my house and he had 3 more police cars plus his behind me all with lights on.

Did they make it smaller?

Oh, damn you on the ninja edit!

Yeah, Subaru stepped up their interior room a lot recently, the '12 Impreza is noticeably bigger inside than the GD/GR. I'm surprised no WRX for the new chassis though?

The hysteria on nasioc for every new model is tired and predictable. Every car is the worst one ever. That forester looks just like the GD based ones.

I'm wondering about the hoodscoop too. I saw that on one of the Detroit Auto Show blogs and figured they just grabbed a pic of he sport model not the XT.

No disrespect there, I only ment that dealers 'typically' sponser stuff like this by name only and don't really show up with anything special. Wouldn't even mind seeing a Puma GRC car there, even thought I don't like the sport/drivers that much, at lease something subaru performance related. I guess I am looking at the wrong event and not SEMA.

No offense taken whatsoever. I know exactly what you mean. That said Budd Baer does a great job at the vintage.

Exactly. If only it were so easy as a simple google search . I keep waiting for us to trade one but yours was the last 1st gen we've had. That is how few and far between they are. I can't pull the trigger until May or so but I can one of my used car dealer friends to buy it and store it until I am ready.

That's Fleckenstein. He's a douchebag too and is known for giving out tint tickets. Did the jars of peanut butter fall out of the door when he came up to your car?
I doubt it was Recker, he's the other K9 but a pretty nice guy.

Tell me about it! I'm surprised I wasn't arrested because I went up the station and Mother F'ed him and the chief the next day. Told the chief that I wanted the damn ticketed ripped up because that was a complete bull**** citeing.
Been a couple months now and have'nt heard ****. Not even a summons or DL-21. Hopefully the tickets were destroyed, If not I'm going to have alot of fun calling up the DA

Jesse, you are painting with a very broad brush. The B9 Tribeca was thought to be ugly. Several years later it is STILL ugly. A lot of people don't like newer models but, universally speaking, certain new models ARE damn ugly. This new Forester is one of them. So is the newish Legacy. The 05 to 09 Legacy was the best looking Legacy Subaru has ever made. This new Forester is the ugliest Forester Subaru has ever made.

You can't really say which one is ugliest. It is a matter of opinion. I hate the first gen over all others. The grill drives me nuts.
