Ok, so well some of yah's know bout my blinker probs and my dealership i got the car from is a gm/pontiac/buick/subie dealer. So up there letting them fix it, as it freakin 14 degrees outside, im walking around enjoying the site of all the new g5 gt's and base g5's, even saw a new g6 GTP with the chrome grill and "hammerhead" wing. They look really sharp.
But what im making this is about the new 2008 wrx's. Walking around the lots i end up near the subie side and im just like Damn, these new cars look amazing. And at a 25000 sticker price, and a sale with 5000 off, plus the after talking with the saleman, he said he could prob scrape a lil more off.
So after talking about nonsense with the saleman he asks if i wanted to test drive it. I was like " HELL YEA". lol. Get in, not having driven a manual in a while, just put it in nuetal and get the feel. And man the inside is nice and roomy. Comes with optional leather, and just a mess of options i dont even needa get into. But the auto climate control was my new bestfriend after how cold it was outside. So pulling outta the lot i can feel the difference in AWD right away. Just felt over all in more control on the car. starting to head up the street and getting the feel for the clutch and brake, i begein to give it some gas.
This is when it gets really fun. I drop it in second at about 30 and push the gas at half. I was in awe at the amount of power that car put out that fast. I was up to 60 in a matter of no time and in 4th gear before i knew wtf i was doing lol. Going down the highway was nice and smooth, didnt wanna freak out the saleman so kept it at a responible speed. Coming back to the lot caught a red light and well i wanted to try launching the awd. rev it to bout 4000 rpms and go and Wow, power got to the wheels fast as hell and man over all i just loved that car.
Came back to the dealer my car was done and i was sad to leave that wrx behind. But at 20000ish bucks, hell i woulda bought it if i saw it on the lot when i got my g5. But then they only had the older style impreza's.
Any wrx owners out there, i have new respect for them cars.
