Me too. I just don't get how someone could like the GR better than a GD that they already own.

For me its about the size. I like that its still on the small size but has more leg room, specifically the rear...and with two growing kiddos it makes since. Plus my dog didnt really fit in the sti. Now if i could have found a brand new gd wagon, i would have considered it. But the sti was my first used car ever and i didnt have very good luck with it and my suspensions were confirmed about its problems im glad i traded up.

I think my only gripe with my new one is audio system....i would have figured subaru could atleast put a significantly better factory system in place. Oh well, thats what the aftermarket is for

outside of the radio, the factory system isn't that bad. I bluetooth pandora all day long and it sounds significantly better then listening to the radio.

There are a few threads on how to 'better' the factory sound output, but I guess it is all subject to your preference.

congrats on the ride.
