    Roadbeef mentioned there was a pca autox this weekend so I decided to go with my Saabaru. He's actually a PCA certified instructor and one of the better drivers the redwood region has.

    Anyway, I still had the Nokian snow tires on the car(they handle better than the RE92's) and decided what the hell, lets give some boxster owners a run for their money.

    We jacked the rear tire pressures up to 50 psi to get more oversteer in this naturally understeering no low end torque body rolling rebadged WRX. Overall had fun, and got some fun pics.

    like maybe if they changed the interior a little more to look like a saab i'd like it but it's just as shitty as a stock impreza

    you know actually when the car came out, the impreza hadn't changed their interior as of yet. the 2006 model year wrx has the 2005 9-2x interior....

    all i really wanted was a wrx with a little bit more luxury(hids, leather, heated seats) the car also has a better warranty, and it was the same price as a wrx
