      EJ205s(WRXs) are the bearing eaters, and are also the 227hp you talk about.

      EJ257s(STi) Didn't have bearing issues and are 300hp in stock form. A tune and a turbo back will get you your 300whp. So...

      Another thing to consider is interior room vs the competition. I test drove an NMS Passat a few months back and was floored by the amount of room in the cabin. I'm 6'1 and was able to comfortably sit...

      Former 2005 LR3 owner checking in.

      I owned my LR3 from 30,000 to about 60,000 miles. It was an awesome vehicle in most regards, but not without issues. As was said above you really can't argue...

      Came for this.

      I had a Malibu with the same engine. I sold it mainly because it was a pain in the ass to work on, and horribly unreliable. In the less than 2 years I owned that car it left me...

      Or check Craigslist in your local area.

      My bike is a pretty Decent Dura-Ace/Ultegra build, and I managed to score it for $500 used. It's served me well the past two years.
    9. The Official Wagon (Avant, Touring, Estate, Variant, Grocery Shopper) thread

      Because the EJ257 is a terrible motor in comparison to the EJ207.

      With the 207 you get a smoother engine that revs to the moon(8200). Better flowing heads, and a stock twin scroll setup that...

      With HF you need to read the reviews, and pretty much stick to their pro line stuff. I've got a box full of their pro line tools sitting in my garage(in one of their pro boxes as well I might add)....

      The 'official' running thread.

      INOV-8s stuff is nice. I have a pair of the rocklite-215 and love them. I will say however if you're ordering online, mine ran half a size big. So I'd recommend trying them on somewhere

      The EJ207(aka JDM WRX STi motor). Factory forged internals with a twin scroll turbo and AVCS gives you full boost by 3000rpms and revs out to a factory 8200rpms. Not bad for 10 year old technology.
