:plac: finds v2.0: Moar gold on the crangslist

They all outperform it. Have you driven a BRZ? Those cars, while great in their own ways, are turds in twisties in comparison. The throttle, shifter, steering, lack of rev hang, balance, mechanical feel of the 86ers is epic and nothing else new that's not a lot of dollars compares, that I have driv...

:plac: finds v2.0: Moar gold on the crangslist

Then why aren't you buying a Prius? I imagine you plan on doing some spirited driving on windy roads, including sporadic jolts of acceleration. Personally, I don't like feeling as though I could get out and run faster than the vehicle I'm driving. I prefer turning and braking to drag racing. Bring ...

V6 Mustangs/Camaros, Turbo 4 Mustangs/Camaros, WRX, M235i, 330i....

All are in that same price range on the used market and are 2015 or newer.
None of those drive ANYTHING like a BRZ.
They all outperform it.

:plac: finds v2.0: Moar gold on the crangslist

The main issue is that there are other options that outperform it at that price point. Like? I mean, you've got Corvettes which definitely blow it out of the water but you're talking a 7-10 year older car with way higher consumables costs... or the Z which isn't nearly as nice to drive IMO.

Shame stingers are so much money. Saw an orange one this weekend and it looked awesome. I think I’d like an AWD one. But too expensive for that badge.
They were putting $10K on the hoods of those things not too long ago.

When I bought my house, the electrical panel in the garage had a McCain 2008 sticker on it. Since then, I've taken to eBay to add some more stickers. I've had friends join in on the fun and supply some stickers and pins, as well. This is where the panel currently stands: https://stored-edge.slickpic...

I think that's sort of relative, noticeably less power, and 30% less displacement. A GTI can also be had slightly used with as much or more content as the civic. The civic is impossible to be found used... for a significant savings. Yeah I wouldn't buy the Si used... bad :dill: in most cases. The G...

Subaru has never been able to earn my business. I've walked in numerous times, but never left in a Subaru. I remember when I was 19, I was looking at the STi and GTO.

The AWD is a benefit, but when it came down to it, I found that I was just giving up AWD by going with the GTI, and I was giving up a lot more going with the WRX.
