Some insane number of candlepower on those LEDs. Really lights up the trail to hunting camp.

Just depends on what you want. The 2004 we have is known for being sortof the worst of the TDI's in that it doesn't get the insane mileage of the <'03's nor does it have the power of the CR '09+ cars. Even so, we have a lifetime average of around 40 MPG. The thing is SLOW though. Seriously slow. But almost never have to downshift on hills either because torque. Road trip monster, just under 600 miles per 13 gallon tank.

I'll buy another, but only because it's my wife's daily. It's just a little too slow and boring to be my daily. Love the bit of clatter though.

New 2015 WRX FTW if you can afford it though. One of my favorite cars I've ever driven as long as it doesn't have the terrible short shifter on it.

I have a company car for work, but when not driving the Miata I rotate between my Bronco, E150 and 'Busa...





Wife DD's an NC...


And we are also former Legacy GT owners... bought it new in 9/04. 'Stage 2' and typical suspension bolt ons... never did get around to that STi swap...

My DD is a 2000 Ford Focus that I've owned since 2006. Its treated me pretty well over the years, currently has 216k miles on it and still on the original clutch.

When I first brought it home


Lowered a little with an SVT front end swap and some Team Dynamics wheels.



Katzkin leather interior



Went through a very short-lived slammed/swag phase and couldn't stand it. It looked good parked but thats about it.



Once I got the MSM I sold most of the parts off the Focus and now it looks like this.

I drive my miata when I'm on my own, and this is our family car. Hauls *** from 0-10, and the over inflated Eco tires make it feel like a stiff sports car



*edit* now with a photo, for realz

Retarded reliable. Cold a/c. Give zero ***** about dents/dings. 28+mpg because I drive like an adult.
That is discipline. When I had my Xterra, I was lucky to get 23mpg.

I picked this up last month for 2k flat.

117k and needs clutch pretty soon. Drives great, though.

That yacht is actually a DD as well, but it belongs to my roommate. Its a '76 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham D'Elegance. He's lucky we live 3 miles from where he works.
