    You are right... I am married... This gets the same mpg as my van, costs me $3/mo LESS, 4 doors, AWD, and reliable. And at the same time, its turbo & Stickshift... Something I REALLY miss. This car is PERFECT for me.. It needs NOTHING other than a stereo. Unlike other cars I was considering, this needs nothing.

    I wanted an altima, but then I would have wanted suspension & rims...
    I wanted a legacy, but then that would need suspension, aero kit, wing, and rims.
    I looked at a 1.8t Jetta w/ the 18" BBS's, but it wasn't AWD, and was SLIGHTLY underpowered for what I wanted.

    This car is PERFECT for what I want. Power, Options, comfy...

    And if we ever take a long trip, we have the CRV, which is what we always drive anyways because A. its paid for, and B. it gets 25mpg.

    Want me to be honest? I was on the shitter when my buddy called about it. :D He works at the dealership, calls me up and says "hey we have one of those subarus with the big wing on it"... I said "tell the salesman these are my numbers for what i owe on the van and what i wanna pay for the STi, if he can make that happen I'll come down and look at it".

    I walked into the dealer, salesman greeted me... No Pressure... Asked if I wanted to drive it... I said no thanks, not until all the paperwork is done. He was totally cool with it. Spent from 9:30am - 4PM at the dealer between paperwork, insurance, test drive and everything.

    It was nice knowing the people at the dealer... It was 30 degrees outside, I got to pull it into the service bay and go over it with a fine toothed comb.

    The rear speakers don't work, the front right speaker's woofer is blown, and the driver's side tweeter keeps cutting in and out... Not to mention it has an $89 Pioneer Deck in it... Dealership is replacing all of it free of charge.

    I think the previous owner had a big stereo and took it out when he sold it. I pulled the rear door panels off and it has Boston Coaxials in it... not bad...

    I used to think that way too about my Si Slushox... But now that I have experienced the beauty of AWD... Its not worth it. :)

    And I now finally understand my other buddy with an STi's sig on another board... "STi. All the fun of Vtec, without the Lag"

    Yeah, but I REALLY took my time.. Spent a good 2-3 hours looking over the car... Pulled the car into the service department to look it over... Spent some time BS'ing with friends that work at the dealer, spent time negotiating prices, spent time shopping for insurance... Then had them give it a Scrub Down for me. Oh yeah... I pulled apart the dash too to see what was up with the rear speakers not working.

    I REALLY took my time on this to make sure it was the car I wanted. When I bought the Minivan, took us about 3-4 hours total.
