    AWD, turbo, and awesome (4.44) gearing. I love the sleeper factor it has.

    Does the forester come in the STI form?

    I hear they are going to roll out a Legacy STi for the US market in the near future.

    I wish they had the forester STI here I would get it in a heartbeat. The XT is a nice car, wanted something a little sportier so I gave up a little room for performace and got myself a WRX wagon which is the perfect combo of perforamce, sleeper, and utility. But if you decide on a subaru you wont go wrong no matter what you get.

    i'd like an XT also but the gas mileage is like 24 hwy. with the gas prices climbing again i'd like to get something with a 30something mpg, like a corolla or something :wtc:. thats sad that i'd want a corolla these days.

    It's not to bad. My gf's auto XT gets around 22mpg most of the time. When you spend $20-25k on a car, what's another $5 extra a week for gas.

    i know how you feel... I need a truck, but I was concerned about gas mileage, so I looked at the new 2005 tacoma (22 hwy for v6 4x4 auto -- pretty good) But I ended up leaving with a 2005 tundra dc 4x4 v8... It's 4mpg difference, which is only a couple bucks a fill. Big deal.

    I don't. Plus the Forester is quicker due to shorter gearing, and has a shorter wheelbase for better handling.

    Haven't heard anything about this, but I would doubt it. The GT is probably the best we'll get for a bit. I'd much rather see a limited edition Impreza make it's way here (S204, Spec-C, etc...)

    I read an article in a car magazine a couple months ago about swapping parts from an Impreza into a Forester: steering rack, suspension, performance wheels/tires, brake master cylinder, etc. It said all the parts they swapped were interchangeable and it made the car ride like an STi without the big neon "I Drive Too Fast" sign on top.

    Hey now, Foresters may be for gays, but only lesbians, not gay men. That honor still belongs to several much cuter cars.

    Yea, subaru is definitely more like "lesbaru"... But that doesn't change the fact that men who drive subaru vehicles:

    a) have small dicks
    b) take it up the ass
    c) suck cock
    d) are general asshole "doods"

    - or -

    e) are over 60 and live in oregon :rofl:

    And I'm looking to buy a Lesbaru. :mamoru: I guess Subaru does fit that stereotype with us lesbos.
