While it may not be 'the ultimate driving machine' I'm really enjoying the handling characteristics of my Crosstrek. It's a nice, firm suspension, and really grips well in the turns.

The lovely Mrs Sinker remarked that it wasn't as comfortable a ride as her '11 Outback. I pointed out that the Crosstrek was intended for a younger market segment. And that's when the fight started....

Lol.....makes me think of the commercial where Mrs. Lincoln asks Abe "does this make me look fat"? He replies,"perhaps"(allowing just a pinch of light between his thumb /forefinger).... She gives him that "you just said something dumb" look. We've been doing it since early man!

Ehhh....

Sounds like an opportunity to snag a mod for the Wet Okoles, to me. "Ya know honey. You're so right! The XV ride is not as comfy. (Enter smooches here). Lets get these lovely seat covers. Provides a softer ride (cough), and... Will protect the investment. Should we add the additional seat heaters with them? Look, here's their web site. You have a much better eye for color design than me. Can you please help pick the colors? (Enter more tonsil hockey here).

Problem solved. Hehhee

I'e been a BMW guy for a long time, I still have a 1990 convertible and have 5 others...that said, it handles very, very well. Dare I say it's the Ultimate Subaru Machine?

Funny thing is... Since in this house, I tend to be the one who does all the modding, I have found it works from either side. Heheheh
