Default Advice..

Ok well I had my first subby a few months back. And it was a nice 2002 WRX hybrid ej25. I ended up selling it. For some reason I could not ride in it for more then 30 mins with out in irritating my old army injuries. Now I'm thinking of getting another. Since I have my g8 gt an what not it won't be driven as long. Now I messed up and didn't know what to look for in the last one and have read many threads and what not. Just kind of want some out look maybe on the leather seated bugeyes? I've seen them before just don't know how comfy, and maybe a 2.5rs? Any insight or advice will be greatly appreciated. Happy new years
Ryan

what about your old car caused you issues? Was the suspension stock? Bugeye seats are some of the most comfortable chairs in the business.

08 wrxs are the softest, suspension wise.

^ I've heard both of these things to be true.

My '09 was giving me lower back pains on long rides (3+ hours). I figured out that my lower back was away from contour of the seat. A quick seat adjustment fixed that and I never have any troubles since.

It might be a good idea to sit in one and see how she feels. Good luck!!

The ride stiffness isn't the problem.. Maybe my seats were just worn down.. My legs would go numb and everything O_o it was bad

on long trips same happened in both wifes highlander and my 03 wrx. mine has 200k miles in 9 yrs so fair amt of driving.

In highlander solved by lowering front of seat just a bit. highlander had multi adjust so was easy to do. on the 03 lowered seat height accomplished same...take pressure off of back of legs.

other things that help rotate your hips to left and drive for awhile and right and drive for awhile. move your left leg closer to seat.

good luck.

When a vowel comes before a double consonant in a word, it almost always has a short vowel sound:

chubby = short "u" /chuh-bee/
Subby = short "u" /Suh-bee/

ruby = long "u" /roo-bee/
Suby = long "u" /Soo-bee/

I don't think you meant that you had your first "Subby" a few months back, and hopefully you didn't have your first "chubby" a few months back either.
