Those are some great sunset shots.

Clint is still here working on the WRX/STI forums so let us know when you're ready and he can help you out with that strut brace.

More snowy goodness this morning.

Just curious, what is your policy on driving a new WRX in cold weather? I only ask because I know the OEM tires are not that safe below 45 degrees.

WRXs are sensitive to proper brake in procedures Also, as we sell most of them to clients out of state who only see their new WRX once it is bought and shipped to them, they overwhelmingly do not want them to have been test driven so to avoid issues (we learned the hard way) we have a policy of no test drives on new WRXs. On top of that, nearly all of our WRXs are pre-sold before they arrive or with in a few days of getting here.

We typically have a pre-owned WRX or two that we can test drive for those that are looking to, but if the weather looks like it does in that picture, the car is staying put. Outback, no prob. My WRX with it's snows...beast mode>:). With those summer tires, the WRX is a bit ...lairy:headshake.

Took the 'Rex for a nice drive in the mountains for my day off.



Will this be my last chance to enjoy a good thrashing before I have to put the snows on?

Heuberger Expansion

After working all summer, our expansion is complete. Our old dirt overflow storage lot has been paved and we added a new building for parts warehouse/ more detail bays and service bays.

did you ever think about having a hill climb competition one subaru vs. another?

might be a cool idea for a video sequence,...and Colorado has the steep grade roads / grassy hills to separate the pack.

be it with your family,...or at a dealership picnic. (employees / owners etc.) edit: or one of them big car shows out there.

3.6 of 2010-2014 5speed auto down in 1st, vs. 3.6 of 2015-2017 high torque Xmode. ...with a full stop in the middle.

vs. Forester XTs
