I have an Impreza, but not an STI edition. Personally, I dislike the car in terms of driving, handling, materials, etc. That said, it's a very good winter car, and Subaru's AWD is great.

I'd do it. At this point, you're already ~$700.00 in just for the unit. Then either more $$$ for install labour or your own time. Honestly, $60.00 more isn't going to make or break this kind of...

This yellow foamy crap happened to me in a Ford Mustang once. Looks horrible. I can confirm that 10min driving does NOT burn the condensation off in real winter weather. The X1 gets it too. I'm sure...

I think they're going to Vancouver Island. Which is super cool as well, I love the Island. We wind up being there decently often for vacation. Maybe I'll get to see them ? :bigpimp:

A pre-purchase inspection would be a good idea. This will give you a list of deficiencies. You can use that list to a) bring the price of the vehicle down, and b) understand what's coming down the...

Correct, there is no such thing as a "block heater" for the E9x. I can also confirm there is no such thing for the E84, or the E85. It's been a week now of below -35 degree temps, swinging between...

I've had an F series twice now as a dealer loaner vehicle. While I agree and prefer the E90 to the F30, I didn't find the F30 "horrible" by any means. I am now very curious to try out the new G...
