My mom's trading in her car..

We went to a few different places, but I think everyone is neutral with the Subaru Outback that she was looking at. It's not bad for a little Sedan type of car. 4cyl Turbo: 250hp :O Very nice in my opinion lol AWD of course, and it's decent on room in the car. It can fit 4 of us, but laughable if you wanted 5. My family is pretty big, except for my mom. Imagine 3 guys all about 6'1-6'3 and all about 250-260lbs.

The dealership is a Subaru/Dodge Dealership, so after me and chris were laughing at the STi's (They've gotten so much smaller inside, it's ridiculous), we started oggling the Dodge Chargers. Especially the 5.7l Hemi editions (The R/T if you wanna be specific) and they had Daytona editions there too. DAMN!

Chargers are ****ing comfortable! Could easily fit 5.

So on Saturday is when we checked out the cars, and they guy was bugging us to go for a test drive in it, but it was getting late.

Sunday comes around and my dad is like "Let's go test drive it.. and maybe we'll test drive the Daytona."

So the dealer let us do whatever we wanted in this vacant parking lot, my dad was doing donuts in the Subaru Outback. The turbo lag was really like, nothing. Then we went back and we test drove the Charger. Pretty ****ing nice! It doesn't accel like an Evo 8, but once it starts going, it goes.

My dad was really impressed and told us "You know, the Challenger comes out in 2008.. that'll be the same time we'll probably have the Outback paid off for.. and I do need to trade in my car.."

So my dad might be a proud new owner of a Challenger when it comes out :O

Least that's what he said

You apparently never sat in an 06 STi.

Their back seat is a JOKE. Only books and loose change can fit back there.

I hate their dumb little nose they have going with the front of the 06 STi's, it's smaller, but I do like the driver's seat and the new back window spoiler they put on it. Otherwise, why the hell get a 4 door STi when you know for DAMN sure you will never use the back seat for passangers?

I'd rather get an Evo over the new STi's :/

what part of "Rally Inspired" dont people get? you really think when going around hairpin corners the drivers saying "i really couldve used some better seats about now"? a Evo is just as uncomfortable as a STi/WRX, ever sit in one?

besides, theyre all overpriced for what they are, and pretty dam ugly. anything 4 doors to me when i want 4 doors, ill get a Tahoe/Suburban/Yukon/Escalade/Explorer/Expedition/Excursion/Navigator thingamagig. of course, when you have a dsm background, a Evo is just a $30K DSM with a warranty and a backwards motor.

Have I ever sat in one? Let me see... I rode in my friend's last week.. and I sat in another one another one of my friend's had the other night to make another small vid of his car.

Talk about comfort, my brother sat fine in the back of an Evo.

And think about using the car not for driving around the city like it was a rally car, but as a normal functioning car. THEN you start to want to use the back seats when people need rides, you need **** to take with you somewhere, etc. etc. etc.

Re: My mom's trading in her car..

Dude seph the sti isnt made to accomodate 4-5 250+ lb passengers. They make the car small because its a rally car. Of course theyre not going to give you 8 miles of legroom in a car thats made for its agility and speed. The smaller things are, the lighter they are, the faster they go. They have racing seats in them for a reason, and that reason is not to accommodate the businessman that travels 3000 miles in a week. If thats what youre looking for, why even look at an sti?

I know it's a rally car, but if an Evo can fit guys like me why bother with an STi? I'd be paying for a rally car that could fit people my size, or I can buy rally car B that would just be smaller. If I was looking at performance, I think I would still stick with the Evo. Listen, I know what you mean by if you want a rally car then don't expect "leg room" but if the Evo does, and the STi doesn't...

I wished they didnt look like crap, the STI looks better but not by much.

The NEW Sti or the 05 version?

The 05 version looks awsome, but the 06 NEW Sti has a dumb looking nose kinda thing going on with it.

05 STi


06 STi
