It may not be the fastest 4cyl crossover but I doubt any competitors sound as good.

Welcome RubySu! I like the fact that everyone is pretty much a XV noobie. That's one of the great things about this forum. As people change and add things to the Crosstrek, we get to see it pretty much first hand. I can't wait to see what crazy stuff people end up doing to these things.

I have a gentleman s agreement that when he gets tired of it, he ll sell it back to me. As of Dec. 2012, he still has it as I emailed him around Christmas. I didn't tell him I hit 179 mph on way out there! I am not kidding either! 179! I could see my heart beating through my shirt! I still don t know what came over me having never been over 120 or so before that!

Anyway, that post about the 6 speed Station wagon - that is the awesome truth brother! Someday, that version you describe is going to sell at Barrett Jackson for a half mil. No doubt!

Great to be here! Go easy on those rice burner cars now, I used to have a Si and when that vtec kicked in, that motor would scream. All good my friends, all good.
That's not what I meant when I said ricers. I'm a car enthusiast that enjoys all kinds of stuff, whether it be the microscopic Honda engine revving someone's heart out down to the heavy truck scene who loves to pull anything and everything they can.

I may not like everything, but I can appreciate everything.

More car people joining is always a good thing
