I'll get some pix posted up this weekend after I give it a bath. The ones I took last weekend didn't turn out, too much sun flare.

This is the car I should have bought in the first place.

We have a '12 Impreza Sport Premium 5 speed. Wife prefers it to the Focus(it does have much better cupholders), but my Ti 5speed does me just fine too. FoFo is getting about 5mpg average better then the Imp since we've had 'em.(6/12 30K Focus, 8/12 10K Imp). She's gonna keep it forever, we drives the wheels off of the Focus.

Good call getting the 5sp Ti, the general consensus is that is the transmission to get or nothing. Had I done the same, I'd still have the car. They're still one of the best looking cars on the road imo.

The Focus does get much better gas mileage. My first week with the Impreza was a whopping 25.5 mpg where the Focus was doing 32 mpg on the same commute. The next week 27.5, and this week is trending closure to 30. I think it's still breaking in.

It's refreshing seeing a normal looking dash. Way too much going on up there on cars these days.

That is one of the reasons I love Subaru. They know how to make a nice basic dash. I hate hate hate this new trend of through every gizmo and gadget on the dash. Although I do not care for Subaru's current exterior styling...
