Do tell...
Safe travels and wrenching!
That's great about the dream, I had a reoccuring nightmare involving a sicko with a wood chipper and my sons. Don't have any idea where it came from but it was once a week for a while. Lasted for about 6 months, I would wake up, go back to sleep and it would start all over. Nothing is worse than, for whatever reason, not to be able to protect your children.
I'll send you a PM in a few.

1. I plan to buy a used car mid-2013 (timing based on when kids college fund payments end). Something fast, daily drive capable, under $50k. Need rear seats for kiddos, but doesn't have to be a sedan. Initial candidates... Audi S4/S5, BMW M3, Caddy CTS-V... haven't actually driven anything yet. Open for suggestions...

2. Need to decide if I am going to keep or sell the STi. Logic tells me to sell it. I would have to store the car elsewhere if I kept it. Doesn't make sense to keep it if it only gets driven a few times a month.

Emotionally, I want to keep it. I read about seller's remorse when people get rid of their modded STi, only to wish they could buy it back. Financially, I can keep it. Car is paid for, 100% functional... Maybe keep it for 6 months and then re-address the situation? Don't know...
You can't leave the car without driving, and I mean really driving the S**t out of it, the replacement. AND it has to THRILL you, more than the STi. Then it also has to be the DD that you can just drive, I don't think you would have any problems with the choices you have made. As far as comfort, Etc. My choice would be the Audi/Caddy/BMW. Make it an M5 and the list might change, but with the budget mentioned it would be a stretch to get a good one.
