So you can spend $75k on say, an RS4 and maybe edge out a WRX by a .1 sec 0-60 and .5 in the quarter mile? And use 2x as much gas, and stop from 60 10 feet longer than a WRX? The audi probably has a better stereo system thoughSylentK said:Bah, get an Audi.
Come on, man! Get yourself a set of these. Then *YOU* can be the minivan guy passing the Subarus.bad andy! said:From what I've seen the past 2 days, Subaru drivers appear to be the new 4x4 drivers in these conditions.
Speeding past people, cutting in and out of lanes with no regard for us poor old mini van drivers.
Dude. With a Civic that's 4 inches!Pau11y said:I can't recall the model of the Michy winter tire I have, but my little Civic passes Subis all day long. The AWD cars p0wnes me when the snow gets above axle deep. But when that happens, I don't drive, avoiding other ding-bats on the road.
I think everybody stayed off the roads yesterday, I enjoyed being one of the few ding bats. No traffic at all to and fro LoveLand, even rush hour was cool in Denver.Pau11y said:The AWD cars p0wnes me when the snow gets above axle deep.

I'm laughing but my wallet isn't... I got hit with new headgaskets on my '02 Impreza a couple of months after buying it last year.SkaredShtles said:So have you or have you not replaced the head gaskets yet?
Don't feel bad - it likely would've gone no matter WHAT you did. We've had our '97 Outback since new and that's the only "major" repair that has been required. Conveniently enough a new clutch is REALLY cheap while they've got the motor out for the head gasket repair. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:Surestick Malone said:I'm laughing but my wallet isn't...

I've heard if you flush the coolant on schedule and always use the Subaru coolant conditioner with the new coolant you should be okay but I can't confirm this... A radiator in need of replacement and an inattentive driver :blush: did mine in.
Definitely the truth.davec113 said:It really comes down to the tires though. A fwd car with good snow tires is better than an awd car with marginal tires.
