Oooh I spotted an 04 silver 2.5 RS sedan with what appeared to be the Subaru factory painted side/front/rear skirts installed!It was spotted in the parking lot inbetween 'House of Tools' and 'John's Other Place' in Colwood yesterday. I wonder who the heck owns it? I didn't take the time to check for a dealer logo, and I'm kicking myself now..

Hmmm, saw that from a distance and thought it was a WRX...Nice looking car though.
Yeah we should get a Subaru meet on, any of you surf Revscene.net as well?

Well the 2.5RS was there again today at 8am, so I'm thinking the owner works in one of the buildings attached to that parking lot... Or it's broken down.. Hahaha!

I wouldn't BUY a car there, especially from Chris, but service IMO has been excellent. They're always accomodating and haven't tried to jerk me around (yet )

Well IMO they charge 100% markup on all parts (40-60% should be plenty), charge you for everything they can find without ever asking (no matter how many times you complain), and they never find or fix *all* the problems you bring to them (do they like seeing me?).

Oh yeah the sales people are funny too.. I bought from Saunders because of the price first, and the location second.. Not very promising reasons to buy from a dealer.

I figure for a familly owned and operated gong show, they do a pretty good job and still offer better service than some of the domestic dealers.. I'm just stuck on the idea of getting 'Subaru' quality sales/service from the people who sell 'Subarus'.

I was getting a power steering fluid leak checked....as it turns out it was just a hose clamp had loosened. They were friendly and quick to help, they did try to charge me $50 for the work, so I very nicley asked if it is something that would be covered under warranty (knowing that is should) and he confirmed it once my wife picked up the car. They washed and vacuumed the car too.
Interesting though, when I had my alignment at Vic front end they said my steering rack bushings had some extra play. Saunders said they are fine. Wonder if they are trying to avoid a warranty claim?

Didn't know you were in town Ghostrider...
You guys, there is a revscene.net meet today, food drive actually.

"Game plan: Meet up chill/collect food/draw prizes/cruise somewhere/go eat somewhere

So let's get the ball going... more details will come after we figure out the plan

don't want to meet up too late since sun does go down quick these days

we'll meet up somewhere.. hopefully it'll be dry and sunny that day

we'll collect non-pershiable items donations, for each 2 items you get a ticket and we'll draw prizes later on.. don't know what these prizes would be.. not keep your hopes up too too much (I'm poor... so there'd be a cash donation box for "let's make alex not poor" fund.. j/k)

and for top 10 donating members (food or blood.. err i mean) will recieve a rs decal each

anywho... we'll probably chill out depending on weather and such if it's bad we'll move to somewhere else... then food... (not the ones we collected)"

Meet is at Tim Hortons by SaveOn, in case anyone wants to show. I may make an appearence between 230-300.

I love 'the eye' .. I get 'the eye' from tuner kids, sorta like I was an alien with two heads driving around in a space ship.. And it's almost always the same funny reaction, they see me, do 'the eye' thing, and then suddenly rev up thier engines and scoot off..

The only thing better is 'the eye' from a girly in traffic, and when she sees you looking she instantly get's self concious and does the classic hair/makeup/boobs check on herself. I try not to laugh, cause that's rude, but I wanna so bad cause I think human nature is friggen hilarious!

Don't even get me started on "the eye". Rude, insecure SOB's can't even be friendly enough to wave. Have to act all cool and ****......please.
Wave at me, I'll alway's smile and wave back. Usually I initiate it. Funny though, seems I get as many "eyes" from young ricers as old guys in BMW's.
