Put your foot on the floor and hold on for the ride. It’s the only way
Thanks! And yep, nailed it
Damn that is nice. I don’t know about the wing, but that can always be changed. Totally worth it for those flip-up headlights, too
I’m a huge fan of the Opels! They were one of the other cars I was looking at when I bought the Ghia.
Thank you! I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
I’ve had the same experience with my Forester. I pride myself in my flawless hill starts, but the Subaru system seems very intelligent and it has yet to hold me in place against my will.
As we all know, the pathway to the pearly gates is a balance beam and only those with the lowest center of gravity will have the stability to traverse it
I went on the date with one of the members a while back. Lovely girl, but I think she was a little unstable for my tastes. I’ll probably go back and drink those waters when I can find the right example for me.
I’ve been seeing the light for years, just haven’t had the chance to switch! Really glad I did, though.
I feel like I’m joining a cult.
I’ve already got one in the mail, thanks though! I’m really counting on the low maintenance thing, it was a big reason for me ditching VW in general. That and a desperate want for some improved snownut capabilities for Michigan winters.
My preference would have been an SG purely for styling reasons, but there’s really not a huge difference in driving experience based on my memory of the ‘04 FXT I drove a couple years back. They really worked some magic with the suspension on this thing, it’s incredibly well sorted.
No upgrade on the suspension, just stock for stock. The GTI on the F1s would easily corner faster than the Foz on whatever it’s got, but the Scoob has a more sophisticated suspension and generally just does a really excellent job of preventing body roll. Remember, underneath that exterior it is still largely Impreza!
The sound was a definite plus, but I missed the outright performance of the 1.8t (I had a tune, clutch, flywheel, exhaust on mine, it was pretty sprightly), and I’m one of those nuts that enjoys the feel of turbos spooling. Handling difference between the two wasn’t really big enough to make a difference. What I’d…
I’ve owned two MkIVs, put fresh suspension on both, most recent one rocking Goodyear Eagle F1s. They’re just floppy cars.
Well I had a 1.8 before that, I’m not a great decision maker.
Normally I’d agree, but there’s actually a pretty big gulf. I’m not sure if you’ve ever driven a MkIV, but they’re pretty lacking in the suspension department. Tons of body roll, and they don’t absorb bumps particularly well. Plus the Fozzie has a quicker steering rack (although lacking in feel), and about a decade of…
Wrong direction, m8
Considering what I started with I honestly think it’s a step up.
