Having gone from Conti Sports on rear drive BMWs to grippier tires, you'll be fine to get used to traction on those. Grippier tires will grip, grip, grip, then suddenly you're spinning in a circle. The Contis will give you more warning.

Supension technology has greatly improved since 91 Foxbody which is an early 80's design.

I got lucky as mine came with PSS tires but it's luck of the draw as you say. The Continentals aren't terrible on the street but the PSS are better in almost every way.

Any updates on the 2020 WRX/STI? Will this be the year for a redesign, or will Subaru leave us hanging for another year? I"m crossing my fingers for the return of the hatch.

If no EJ means sophisticated, then yeah, I hope they’re keeping track.
But they’re real freakin slow.

2020 STI is the same STI as before. Buy what you need now, or wait.

That's fairly poetic. No sarcasm.

That's why I ordered a 2019 STi. It'll give me ~3 years of enjoyment before they sort out the bugs on the new STi whenever it comes out. Then I can make a decision at that time if I want to "upgrade" or not.

Now it sits next to my 2005 STi and neither of them really get driven... I should probably change that some day.

The '19 would definitely go before the '05. Lol. I have too much time and money into the '05. It'll never go anywhere.

I've had the '05 for 8 years now. I do regret selling my '01 2.5rs manual coupe that I use to daily though. But now my garage is getting a little excessive. Lol.

My 2006 WRX wagon is starting to have that "classic car" feel/vibe, partly because whenever I drive my wife's corolla iM hatch I'm reminded as to how far cars have come with regards to good stuff like efficiency, NVH control & chassis design, and bad stuff like all the nannies, safety & tech crap, vague clutch pedal & shifter, eps, lack of feedback (see also NVH control & eps), & blind spots galore.

The good: it's a fairly analog car, just airbags and ABS so no real nannies or tech, awesome greenhouse, doesn't feel claustrophobic or require a backup camera, but it feels like every time I fix/replace something, something else needs fixing or replacing; it's an older car after all. Beyond that, chassis design and structural adhesive use has gotten so much better, that modern cars will out handle it, but they aren't as fun to drive.

20 years is the classic cut-off in my state, I might actually make it there in my 06 WRX wagon if nobody makes a car I want to replace this one before then, 7 more years of living the Subaru life though? I dunno if I can do it with this as my daily, and I don't like it enough for it to be a second "primarily fun" car, and I haven't devalued it enough in my own mind to demote it to "winter beater" status.

I just want a quick wagon with three pedals that isn't FWD or front-biased AWD, which is apparently too much to ask of any manufacturer.
