      Or a Miata, or an S2000, or countless other cars. The wave is common among many car brands.

      Thing with the S2000 was it was genuinely a rare site to see, and a special car where a modded Subaru is...

      I think the "lack of torque" comments you read about are very over exaggerated. The car is just fine even below 4K. I ran several tests running 0 - 60 shifting below 4 and it was always less than 9...

      AWD isn't magic. Despite the masses who think AWD is a cure all, not much you can do about 500 lbs of engine hanging over the front axle.

      He didnt' scrub off enough speed simple as that. Once we...

      That blue works on certain cars i.e. 911 GT3 and BMW M cars but not here.

      These cars are ugly enough, just put a not threatening color on it and call it a day. It doesn't work on these cars.

      I think there are very few cars that this isn't the case when it comes to rear facing child seats but it's a pretty big car.

      Turned out to be covered under the fuel rail/seal recall. The thermostat needed to replaced in certain cases under this TSB, and fortunately mine fell under this service so the faulty thermostat was...

      The older I got, life was complicated and it was hard to have two cars.

      I had an 04 Accord and 02 S2000 but I ended up never driving the Accord. Then I ended up having back problems driving the...

      Yeah those blanket generalizations are not wise words to live by. Sure the S4 is an enthusiast car, but they aren't typically owned by 18 year olds like a WRX is, and it's important to look at the...

      Something about the styling that just throws me off. Ugly cars.

      Miata also doesn't do it for me. Looks girly and has no powah.

      It's not just BMW, Audi steering feel sucks too.

      S4 is such a great car, but compared to the E90 is really puts a dent in the fun factor.

      I won't be getting used to it most likely, if this...

      I got 20K out of my Direzza star specs on my old S2000 with a more aggressive factory alignment than the S4 has, plus it had staggered tires.

      Manual says the reserve is 1.8 - 2.4 gallons when the light comes on, but I don't see how this holds up. It's more like 3 - 4.
