So you go out and buy something more expensive with way more moving parts. Slower too.

Dude, I am immensely jealous.
White is my thing.
Wagons are my thing.
Turbo's are my thing.

I ******* wish Volvo would get the lead out and make a 400whp rear-drive wagon with a manual and bring it to the states. I'd wait 2 years when they're depriciated 80% like Volvo's do, buy one used, and rock that shiz forever.

One of the Car&Driver writers has an all black Caprice wagon with a built LS2 and a 6spd... kinda reminds me of Queen Latifah... you know you would.

i broke my plastic window the same way....bullshit.


I bet you'll end up modding your wagon when it becomes too slow, end up breaking ****, and find yourself at square one again ;p

Thats what cars do...they **** up

I dunno, when my miata started breaking parts, became less and less reliable, comfortable, and economical, I went out and bought a 2008 Lancer for a DD. I was really afraid I'd do the exact same thing to it that I did to the miata; suspension, brakes, turbo, strip, and I'd be back to square one.

Almost 40,000 miles later, and all I've done apart from oil changes is replace the tires (I still drive it like Stig) and add an audio cable so I could plug in my iphone. I was surprised how content I was at the idea of giving up so much fun, power, and handling for a little comfort and better gas mileage, here's hoping I keep it that way!

Only difference is that I kept my miata for a track only car, so I still get my fix
