    Good idea- won't have to drive that far if you get a surprise snow storm or something

    Drove from Portland to Los Angeles, had the Koni Sports tuned halfway with Perrin Springs.

    Wasn't that bad, except for the real crappy parts of I-5 where there are small dips all over the place. Only person to complain was the only female of the group, but she is a whore anyways.

    WRX isn't too bad for long drives. A little worse since I put STi springs/struts in, but still not bad.

    But my other veichle is a 94 Nissan truck, so anything else is nice.

    I drove my car from KC to Omaha, about 3 hour drive, it was a piece of cake. And a WRX is even softer riding than my car.

    I took mine to Des Moines and back with no issues. I love how smooth it is on the interstate. Even better is I sold it today for an STi.
