you're welcome kazi, it sure is a beautiful wing! The 22B is my dream car, every part of it is functional and has a purpose. Not too many cars these days can say the same.

Maybe one day Subaru will bring back the 22B and rock the world! 8)

They would sell every one of them, so it makes you wonder why don't companies release more special edition cars like the 22B? Maybe they cost too much to produce? The 22B did have specially rolled fenders to fit wider wheels/tires which I imagine isn't cheap to do. And we do have the WR1, but it's so expensive!

well the pound is worth way more than the dollar so in U.S currency it would be more like:

sport $30,000
WRX $35,000
STi $40,000
WR1 $45,000

:shock:

our prices are in this ballpark

Impreza 2.5RS $20,000
WRX $25,000
STi $30,000

not too bad really, and of course people are getting better deals in some cases.

the only diff is you guys get the top of the line models! Our STi is right up there though.

Sure Gareth! We could swap for a couple years, but I bet you would get tired of dodging all the SUV's over here! It's like most Americans think they need to drive the biggest cars/trucks they can.

But yes, your money would go a lot further over here! Heck, you could probably buy 2 STi's! A silver one and a black one. :wink: :P

Yeah, everyone thinks they need an SUV over here- and most of them are women who can't see over the dashboard. Women + large SUV= deadly weapon.

Exactly! Little soccer moms talking on their cell phones while disciplining their children while changing three lanes in traffic. That is on any typical US road. :roll:

But JM I have to alter your equation: Women + Any Car = deadly weapon :shock:

I wouldn't go quite that far- my wife is an excellent driver. I know a few other women who are. But when I see a petite little 5 foot woman jumping off the side step on their Lincoln Navigator I cringe.

Good conversation going there..... I see your point! theres no too many SUV's where i'm from (most prob the samr throughout the uk) and i guess its all about petol (gas ) prices....

Ok heres a question for you.... If you call petrol Gas what do you call Gas? (the real gas :wink: ) :?:

JM, I wish there were more women out there that can drive good like your wife, unfortunately I have almost been killed numerous times when a girl is driving. I try not to be in a car with a girl driving, I enjoy life too much! :P

although I can say my mom can drive really good, she can even drive my 5spd WRX very good. But she drives too slow.

Gareth, you are very lucky you live in a country where SUV's are not popular, they are a PITA to people who drive normal size cars.

and gas can be used to describe fuel for a car, or a smelly body function. :4:

My mother is hell on wheels. I remember following her to work one morning- she in her Crown Vic, me in my Trans Am and having to floor it to keep up with her. Plus, she hugs the right side of the road to the point you wouldn't want to ride along with your arm out the window for fear of losing it to a street sign.
