Apologies to all concerned, Japanese cars never really do it for me. Some fine machines, yes, but, I mean, LOOK at this thing!

The STi is a rocket! Mucho ponies, gobs of torque, but it is not as nimble as one would expect from an AWD vehicle. It also needs a place to put the CD's since the arm-rest console is just big enough to hold a cell phone and the glove box is already crowded with the owner's manual, registration, insurance papers, etc.
It is as close to a sexual experience as one can get from an automobile. Fuel milage is poor, to be mild, but it improves once you grow up and learn how to lift your starboard-side shoe. I'll let you know when I mature a bit and learn how. *chuckle*
As I stated in another thread, the STi suffers from severe understeer when one is in a high-pressure corner (such as a descending-radius turn) and applying too much horsepower. I'm certain that it's a quirk to which one can adjust.

TyPe-ZeRo said:Though i've replied to this thread before, I also want to say Skyline GT-R34 V-Spec II.
Its not because of those stupid wannabe racing movies (cough 2 fast 2 stupid), but I just really like the look.. it reminds me of a bullet, the front looks nice, but the rear end top view looks kinda unmatch, i just love the "box" looking design.
Aren't they $90,000 U.S. with shipping/fee's? of course used through Motorex...
I found a site where they have very good condition Skylines, for "cheap" which would be about $35-55,000 USD. It's the shipping charges that own ya... not to mention conversions
