    5:39 Is that for real, human bodies standing on the edge of a track, or ON the track????? With racers sliding around corners? That's really hard to believe.
    (Is that France? Or California? Maybe I wouldn't be so upset then)

    I loved my 16 limited STi but after 3 years and a lack of camping abilities I had to trade it in for a Tacoma ...I’ll get another subie but I like hunting and camping way to much to leave it at home or take it and destroy it on the crazy back trails

    Boxer engines sucks and sounds like rattling steel trashcans!
    This post was made by the Volvo inline 5-cylinder Gang.
    The feeling when Nolan starts talking about Wagons and starts of with Subarus and the goes off about Audis and the Poland invaders being “revolutionary with their 5-cylinder AWD Wagons”. While I literally scream at the screen “Volvo XC70 T5” repeatedly until the video ends....

    I’d like Subaru to make the WRX in a wagon, or at least a hatch again. The outback is too tall to be a “wagon.”

    Actually, the reason why Subaru sells well is practicality, AWD, and reliability. Audi reliability.

    The Evo was always better. Too bad Mitsubishi rested on their laurels with the base model lancers for far too long.

    I bought a new 2014 STI 6 years ago, and in all that time, I still wish I could have bought the old 2-door Impreza with the STI's engine and Brembo brakes. The older smaller car was more fun, just slow. The 22b must be awesome.
