well, with winter just around the corner, and the m3 going to get parked in just a couple months, the quest for a winter beater is on..... but i don't want a beater. I want more of a DD. the M3 sucks donkey nuts in the rain. damn wide tires make the thing float. and i live on top of a mountain.... so come snow time, i'll be stranded. not to mention 255/35/19 snow tires are ungodly expensive... and i don't really even want to take the car out in the salt on top of all that. so, the quest is on. awd is a must i think... it will make my life so much easier and a lot more fun to tool around in the snow with So, i ran across this... i sold him my rota's last year and hes a cool dude so i'm sure i can get it for a good price with little haggling... HondaMarketPlace.com: FT:1998 Subaru 2.5 RS Connecticut+2004 rmz250 for a nice EG he's asking 6k. it's a little more than I want to spend, and frankly, i don't have 6k right now at all... but credit cards are a wonderful thing. yes, charging a car (through paypal) is probably stupid, but i can have it paid off in 2 months tops, so it will cost me like 200 bucks more in interest. i'm not too worried about it. So, what do you think? I REALLY wanted a base model impreza around the same year, but they are impossible to find in a 5spd or not beat to shit. thoughts?
