Default Drove WRX and 3.5 Altima today.

First off i have to say that the WRX was freaking awesome. That thing is so freaking fast once the turbo spools wow. It sticks to the corners like there'* no tomarrow. Took a nice sweeping turn doing 70 where the tires would have been screaming on the bonnie, and the thing was not even close to breaking lose. So much fun to drive.

The Altima was also fun, it was pretty quick, and reminded me a lot of the bonnie. I'd like to find a manuel to drive. The auto was good, had pleanty of power, but not that seat of the pants kinda thing.

I'm planing on test driving some more cars soon.. I'll let you know how it goes.

Kudos to Subaru, its a wild fast car

The WRX runs about 23,000. Not too bad for what you get.

if you want to drive a true wrx then test drive the STi. In the engine statement I think Honda is being forgotten as they got 250 hp out of a 2 liter engine in the s2000
