    I've never heard of that Subaru. The new WRX's aren't that great though. Every company seems to have insanely ugly grills nowadays. Last years are nice as hell.

    A fast $5000 civic may crush a lot of high end cars...but its still a civic. And while I appreciate that quality....I wouldn't turn down an Aston Martin or any other expensive car. Personally...I'd love to have a vintage Ferrari.

    Those tweels are a trip. Not entirely sure how I feel about them. Almost makes the car look like its floating on air.

    I'm not saying I don't respect the amount of work and thought that was put into high priced sports cars, but even if I did have the money I would never buy one simply because you buy it and keep it the way it is, without doing any work to it yourself. I'd rather see a cheaper car whose owner has took the time to work on it and make it nicer, than a rich old guy who bought his couple grand car and has done nothing to it because he really can't.

    rally cars will always and forever be sexier than any other sports car


    rally = sport

    sport = sport


    rally = attention to driving

    sport = mid-life crisis


    rally = knowledge of driving

    sport = i just made a gazillion dollars on the newest tech stock so i bought a lambo



    :yuck:
