RE: more Subaru vs. Audi. (little Audi content)

If space isn't an issue, there is always the Mazda 323 GTX...many of
these can be had for less than $10K and will do circles around a stock
Turbocharged Quattro.  These have to be the ultimate sleeper cars.
They're great at blowing off the occasional GTI, Z28, or Mustang =), and
it's always humorous to see the expression on the other driver's face
when they see the car you're driving.

...but, regarding the Subeys...I'm still waiting for the Impreza WRX to
make it over here ;-).

<<I recently replaced a "scareeee"*  '90 V8Q with a used '96 Legacy AWD

They are not even remotely comparable cars.  They were never intended to

compete with each other.  There's no value in debating their relative 

All Audis have far more class, comfort, performance, looks, safety, 
status... you name it, than most any Subaru.  But the question of value 
looms large.

Given that an 18 month old AWD+ABS Legacy w/20k miles can be had for
$15k, it's fair to claim that Subarus may be more practical cars. 
 Especially for those of us with thinner checkbooks and less of an urge
pay for the "more of everything" that the Audis offer.

The Subes are also much cheaper to insure and maintain and that AWD
is pretty darn slick, too.  If you want an economical AWD sedan for
under 20 
grand you have little selection....

But can you believe that Subaru wants $360 (plus tax) for the service
