Whats up, just seeing who is still around. The Texas subforum is looking a little thin these days.

I just bought a 2020 STi.


It's not the same visceral feel the 05 STi's had when they showed up (compared to the WRX anyway)... but its still great. Has all the right noises, whines, and still has the boxer rumble. I can't believe they developed that OUT of the newer WRXs!!!



Anyway. Good times again.

I check in periodically, even though I've lost favor with the powers that be and am thus no longer a mod.

Well, that and the place has been dead, so I haven't bothered much.
