    See now these comments dont add up. Its not about fashion, its about the feel and you must know that if you know you should have gone for the Forrester GT.

    Re: Trying to Get to Know You...

    Exactly.

    However I considered several factors in my decision on the X model.

    1> price - I was at my financial limit buying the base model
    2> higher insurance cost for "sports" model - see >1
    3> premium unleaded - adds up to about another $400 per annum - much rather spend the extra 8 bux a week on stuff that interests me like coffee.

    The only thing I regret is not spending the extra getting the XS (next model up) which has leather seats *wow* but also automatic ride levelling which I need for the loads I carry on a daily basis. Although I can get HD springs for 300 bux fitted to deal with that.

    As I said, it is not a fashion statement just purely utilitarian.

    cheers

    Wing
    if you got the hotted up model youd have to also consider buying that baseball cap and losing all driving ability!
    Ive seen you drive, stay with what you have, youd drive the pants off higher model drivers,
    having said that thou my bro in law as you know has a wrx, but hes an ex trophy winning rally driver, so hes one that actually knows how to drive it apart from owning one for the w@nk value!

    Id buy one like yours cos I dont like leather seats, and all those cup holders! Perfect for the caffinated driving enthusiast!

    Im sure if there is a shrink in the group..... they could draw some interesting conclusions from our responses.....

    They would probably say we are all insane..... or at least have deep psychological issues.....

    ;D JavaB, Im sure that there would be some interesting things said.

    Ive been enjoying reading the responses that everyone has made so far! I seem to have a smile on my face the whole time Im reading.

    I am actually surprised at times by the age some folk say they are. Their tone that comes across the internet to me is not always indicative of how old they are and I guess its really only a physical age were talking about anyway. Most of us, I tend to believe, stay a lot younger mentally! ;)

    Re: Trying to Get to Know You...

    Back in the days when radio was king -- pre-television of course -- radio stars never issued photos of themselves. Because listeners had their own comfortable mental images of what the face behind the voice looked like.

    A picture would destroy that mental image, and, along with it, perhaps the stars career, too.

    We all have mental pictures of what the rest of of look like.
