Test drove the wrx automatic, definitely loved it but with my trade in its not possible right now :(

I did go drive a ct200h the little lexus hybrid f type and it wasn't that bad surprisingly, awesome on gas.

I'm torn….I love the sound on the wrx D:

But i do love that 40 mpg.

Mazda 3 gets 40 and is much better received. Won every comparison test it's been in I think. And Mazda just won the Consumer Reports best overall brand rating(resale, reliability, and driving performamce.)

Don't think a brand has ever been ranked top by enthusiast mags AND CR before.

I go this weekend to Subaru to see about trading in my car for a wrx, while I can drive stick it's not something I like so I'm going to see how the automatic with paddle shifters work

I love paddle shifters mwahahahaha

WRX auto is a CVT I believe....

Been removing all the fuel hose on my monster the last few days. Ahhh, the smell of Torco in the afternoon

Couldn't you add all three options in aftermarket for cheaper? Not sure, but it may just be nice having factory options, rather than aftermarket?


Push button is bundled with nav?

Looks like the 2016 WRX has been announced and it's going to cost me at least another grand $1500 BUCKS to get the nav package. :rofl:

Hopefully I can have one by the middle of June so I can take it on a road trip to Toronto with the fam.


For less money you could by a far superior Pioneer 8100NEX that has Android Auto and Air Play. Might be putting one in my wife's car this summer.

Finally got my ass behind the wheel of a WRX and I REALLY like it. It handles great and I'd say it's 80-90% of the BRZ in terms of feel. It's not as comfy as the TLX, but I think the WRX looks way better and handles the extra weight better too. The Boss gave approval, so it looks like a WRX is in the future. I was actually surprised at how big the interior feels compared to the Lexus IS. If there's one thing from the STi I'd want, it'd be the sliding door for the cup holders in the console...and the rims...and the park bench spoiler...haha

Holy shit the stock exhaust is loud though. Windows down and you Really hear it rumbling. Now I get it when qbanita says the STi is LOUD. Turbo was fun and this thing is QUICK. Too bad it's wasted on me since I don't particularly drive fast.

Time to say goodbye to the BRZ. It's love, but sometimes you jjust have to say goodbye when too many bad things happen. :cry:

Not sure if you listen to autoblog podcast but a few of the guys are WRX fanboys. They have been reporting quality issues with their long term model. Might spend some time on the Subie sites and see if that is common.

Oh and I was at the local cruise night and Hellcat parked next to me. Several of the panels paint didn't match......

Had Several people interested in my car, getting tempted to sell....

The C7 supply has finally caught up with demand saw a used one at a local dealer and the prices are now even lower than I expected. If anyone is looking you could probably negotiate a bit on new ones now.
