Default One last time.. what are you going to buy for your Subee with your income tax refund?

I am getting less than expected back. I gave 17k to the government and only getting 1.5k back.


But it will be struts, camber/castor plates, group n mounts, flywheel. Was hoping for a clutch, but not this time.

Doh. At least the government isn't making interest off your excess money while they have it.

I'll most likely get the rest of my WRX with my tax refund. I still owe just over $2000. The rest will go toward a down payment on a car for my wife. If there's anything left after all that (yea, right), my next upgrade will be some alignment equipment from truechoice.com.

A down payment on my next car. Waiting until the autoshows to see if the 2005 models have anything new over the 2004 ones.

1. G35 Coupe
2. STI
3. 350Z


Not in any special order.....


BTW I'll have ~ 4 sets of suspensions in the next 4-6 weeks. Two are V8 Spec C's

I'm finally going to get wheels and tires. All of my money so far has been spent on going faster and nothing on handling. Maybe if I'm lucky, I can even buy some suspension components.

I thought about the G35 coupe as well, but I have heard many a bad thing...

first the trannies supposedly suck
second, lack of power

and this would hold true for the Z

plus to get a decent Z, you spend way more than the STi and still get less...

they both look nice though...

I would love to have a G35 coupe or 350Z, but my wife drives a
Miata. And my point is..... since she drives a Miata, then I am the
designated "family car" provider, hence my "family sedan" WRX which has 4 doors, a useable back seat, and a trunk. It works for me!!

Happy New Year!

15Hp is hardly a lot less power

Granted the car costs more... I just don't like the ricer boy look of the STI.... *sigh*
