Drove a WRX Limited Wagon and Forester XT Sport Today

Needless to say I love my new job, and I think I might lease that wagon until the STI revamp is released. Holy shit, the gobs of sleeper goodness, and when that turbo kicks its so smooth and fluid in the powerband. I think I missed my calling wasting the last 4 years on software development when anything involving cars would make me this happy, and bonus - I'm encouraged instead of scolded for surfing car news/forum sites.

Nothing was better than the look on the Cobalt SS owners face when he was zipping around and I dropped the Forester into second and punched it. Now I understand the humor in that magazine ad that talked about the Nissan Z getting trumped zero to sixty by two middle aged women and their cocker spaniel.

I absolutely hate the new front end on the WRX. What the is that thing is the middle of the bumper or grill? I would love to have like an 05 blue STI. That is one sweet car. I do like the Legacy GT. That's a great car.

There you are! How's life been treating you? I've gotten pretty involved over on the NASIOC forums in recent weeks. Works continuing to be great, we're doing a couple special events in the coming weeks starting tonight. I don't know why I waited so long to get into the car business.

I frequent IWSTI the most since it is more STi related but NASIOC has WAYY better technical info for sure. Life has been tremendous and busy all at once...having a baby can do that :). Glad to see you enjoy working the car business especially Subie. I know I love the way I get treated by the Subaru dealership near here and especially by Subaru of America. I have never been invitied to so many car related things by an auto company ever. Hope everything keeps looking up for you man.

Congratulations on the baby! That sounds great! What's your name on IWSTI? I'm on there a little bit too . . . probably will be more once I splurge on an STI :D
