29hwy with your STI?? I get like 25 max in my nearly stock wrx...

As far as the ST, I say go for it. I don't know if there are any big advantages of AWD given where you live and hatches are definitely friendly for hauling kids/dogs/oversized stuff. But if a hatch isn't necessary, what about a used G35 sedan? I'm not sure how often they came with a manual though...
