I’ve been semi-seriously shopping to replace my ‘17 WRX for around a year now and I just can’t seem to bring myself to do it entirely because of how it handles on snow/gravel. It is truly bliss.

Congrats. Winter will bring revelations on the ways of the turbo Subaru, you’re gonna love it. Install snow tires and turn the TC/ESC off when you start the car, winter is where it shines in the driving dynamics department.

It is a good feature but I always thought it was pretty standard. I’ve had it on every car I’ve had that wasn’t 30 years old, from my ‘04 Mazda - ‘09 BMW - ‘15 VW to ‘17 Subaru, and in each of those the rate at which the volume ramps up with speed has been adjustable. I usually have it fully on, except in the BMW Read more

I 100% thought this thing was vapourware when it was announced, I think most people did. Consider me humbled. Read more

Can confirm. Mine is the one on the right. Same wheels, same everything, just the model year differences.

That looks pretty minor. Unless it loses air frequently or the sidewall bulges due to damaging the structure, I’d expect it to just be cosmetic and the tire to last just as long as the others. If it was more serious I’d expect the wheel to me more gnashed than it is anyway.

My torso is tall obviously but the legs tend to prove more of an an issue for me. In many cars I’ll have to slide the seat further back than would be ideal in terms of reaching the steering wheel. European cars tend to be more accommodating, both with seat adjustment and more generously telescoping steering wheels, Read more

Yep, headroom. At 1.95m I have just enough headroom in my 128i and a helmet for autocross is just doable. A sunroof negates that. Read more

As duurtlang mentions - headroom. The sunroof mechanism tends to drop the headliner 1-2” which removes the little bit of headroom I had and makes wearing a helmet completely impractical, rather than just tight. Read more

Oh damn, I forgot about the oil pan, I’ll have to check that. Good call, will do the pump if the pan gasket is going.

Red interior on a white car is almost my ideal spec. If it was a slicktop I’d consider sneaking across the border to try and smuggle it back to replace mine.

Mine is at very nearly the same mileage as the one in the ad. Can confirm it will need all the gaskets, as mine does. Hopefully going in the next week, because I don’t want to fuck with the valvetronic to do the valve cover. I’m thinking I’ll have the water pump done preventatively at the same time - thoughts?

The M4 will still be ugly because everything from the door to the rear bumper is poorly proportioned but this bumper treatment would make the M3 look fantastic in one fell swoop.

I made the mistake of checking them out via their IG page recently and pretentious is absolutely the right word to describe the brand.

A new Outback XT ute would suit me. I’d buy a new Baja if it existed.
