Just drove an STi!

i went to look at an 02 wrx today and when i got there the guy told me they had just sold it the other day. he said they just got an sti this morning and told me to go check it out. he came up to it and said lets go for a ride without checking my license or anything. after weaving it out of their tiny car lot we were off. the guy was cool and told me to unload it in first around a corner and then unload second. this car pulled way harder than anything i have ever been in and begged to go fast. one thing i love is the driver controlled center differential and the center positioned tachometer with built in shift light. it was an 04 silver with 6600 miles on it. no matter what gear you were in if you were over 3000 rpm the thing just took off. now if i only had $29000 laying around...

the interior for one thing
a lot of stuff
i forget, better steering was one thing
but there was a lot of little things making it a lot more appealing, esp the interior.
