i test drove a wrx too. i haven't driven that many
turbo cars before. the lag was apparent. it's so small
and dinky. my SHO is like a limo compared to that
econobox! ;-)

it's funny what i got used too. the SHO, although a
taurus, has a lot of creature comforts.

i asked the salesman "hey, can i get leather,
sunroof?" said yes to leather, no to the sunroof.

then i asked what about power seats? NO! huh? not even
the driver? (SHO has power driver and passenger and
power lumbar).

bah, cute toy. but, i drive 65 miles roundtrip to work
everyday. i want to basically have all the creature
comforts of a house, in my car! ;-)

that's why i like the A6 2.7T. everything i have now,
but with far better fit/finish and heated seats! all i
need now is an espresso machine.

regarding last post - keman, don't know man. i think
i'd go Z06 over the 350Z anytime. i saw one run
consistent 12.7 ets, stock, at sears point in the bay

of course, he got squirrly on his last pass and
totaled it into the wall! still had paper plates on it
too :-(

see ya,
