Default went from a brz to a wrx

Hey everyone i'm new to the subaru game after a brief hiatus with american muscle.... wont ever go back unless its a pre 1970 vehicle lol.... but i placed an order on a limited brz till my dealer got a demo car in an i got to sit in an drive, i absolutely hated it i know crazy right? But its too small too cramped and i have rather broad shoulders an couldnt fit in the seat. So i took my name off the #1 spot an bought a 2012 swp wrx an love every second of it! Definitely the right choice!

Meh...not for everyone I suppose.

If the value of my car was higher, I'd switch it out for a BRZ/FRS in a heartbeat.

None the less, welcome and enjoy your stay.

brz is more like a car like the s2k or miata, if you like those type of cars then by all mean it will fit you

I wouldn't place an order for a car I've never even sat in.

Ordering isn't the same as buying... when I ordered I didn't have to put down a deposit so I could back out at any time

Regardless it's probably like putting a deposit on a wrx, they will give it back if you end up not getting it, dealers around here (nesic) at least don't have a problem moving them so they don't care.

Not sure which of the two you meant to type:
1) "sit in and drive"
2) "sit in a drive"

#1 tells me you actually drove the car.
#2 tells me you were a passenger during a drive.

Anyway, if I read your post right, you took your name off the list because it was too cramped and not necessarily because you did not like the way the BRZ drove. I personally think the BRZ would be impressive to drive at least on a track. So I am just wondering what you meant to say...

BTW, congrats on the 2012 WRX (swp) ... I happen to have the very same model and colour on order!

I got to drive it around the parking lot they wouldnt let me take it to the streets but its handling was very precise much like a miata IMHO. But in no way would it suffice as a good dd for comfort reasons. But then again this is just my opinion, and in the end the wrx was a way better choice both style and comfort
