AUTO sedan. Hold off on the trolling until you finish... It's a good deal, hard to pass up. BUT, I've got a 2 year old (car seat #1), wife that can only drive an auto and I've got another child on the way (car seat #2). Two car seats in that sedan back seat and a strict AT? The hatch and 08 design is awesome, IMO, and handy for traveling. Sportshift allowed me to control my shift (somewhat) and feel like a man driving ;-) Should I just wait until I can get a WRX project car and play around with my 2.5 until then? Or go for it now? Yes, yes, personal preference... just curious on your thoughts and what you all would do.
I have a 3 month old and was debating buying a 07 or a '10 wrx but I decided to keep my '10 hatch. It's more roomy and cheaper to maintain, turbos=problems. Especially since my girlfriend can also only drive auto. It would be nice to have a WRX but family comes first, just my .02€
