Smile 60 days of selling Subarus :-D

I love my job. After driving that EJ25 WRX I'm having a HARD time justifying keeping my SVTF. Anyone want it? :)

But seriously, selling these cars is a dream job. The SoA reps are excellent, the products you can actually stand behind, the service department doesn't screw people, basically I should have done this a lot sooner and not wasted so much time with software for full of BS execs.

I just can't possibly go back to driving a FWD car after feeling this AWD through the corners. I will say I'm a boost addict to the core

the new foci are not what they used to be, and most people on the forums have had their foci for a long time, put lots of miles on them and are ready to move onto something better and sadly...there is no good foci to move too.

Truer words have never been spoken. I only went with an 07 zx3 because my car was stuck at the dealer and after juggling a couple of cars in a three week period, another focus would have been easier for me to cope with. The fact that the dealer threw a 7yr/84k bumper to bumper to make the sale didn't hurt matters.

When this is paid off, I'm likely going to go elsewhere. I seriously doubt that there will be another focus worth buying in six years time. The 07 is pretty much the last of the foci worth buying.

I'd give up my foci in a heart beat for a new STI.

Just watch out for those 2003 and older 2.5L head gaskets right ;) Just add more block seal in order to get them past 100k miles
