Anyone see anything about heated seats? Not seeing an option in any trim level. Maybe I'm missing something? »
So they asked 3 people in 5 people in Turkey if they have ever had an STi, three of them were Turkish guys on NASIOC... »
Why AWD though? I've never seen an AWD bike that didn't handle like crap. Not to mention the added maintenance. »
If they did the 1.4T with a stick and AWD. (Like cough cough Jeep is doing with the Renegade.) Then maybe they'd have something. 30+ mpg, awd, and a stick? Think about it, it'd be cool and I bet they'd sell at least 20 of them. »
Why do they take away hand brakes from all cars now? Besides loosing the hoon factor, a lot of electronic parking brakes automatically disengage when the car is moving. That means they are just a parking brake and not an emergency brake. »
I'm guessing the author of this little post hasn't read this article...

35-70ish is the acceleration I care about. Once I get into 2nd, and want to floor it, accelerate down an on ramp, pull out of a corner. That's what makes a car fun, to me at least. »
You really need to look at real world mileage of diesels. They typically WAY out perform their EPA numbers. The worst highway tank my friend's Jetta TDI has ever returned was 45mpg, in the summer he generally sees north of 50, and he isn't the guy going 68 in a 70 either.
You also should really compare longevity. Yes… »
