Only subi i'd drive is a WRX. And you can't touch one in decent shape that hasn't been beat on for under 10k. AWD would be nice, but isn't necessary.
If I was going the WRX route, i'd look for a Saab Aero 9-2X. Same exact thing as a WRX, just with some saab luxuries and not the typical boy racer image.
If money wasn't an object...i'd put down some money for a 08+ Mazdaspeed3. As a matter of fact, once I get the Ranger paid off...and I might sell the Bronco to do it...i'll be seriously considering picking up a brand new speed3 or a new focus ST.
And yup...quiet! I said it. I've had the exhaust re-done 3 times on my Bronco since I was 18 (nearly 27 now)...because I wanted it LOUDER! And I still enjoy it at times. Ranger's exhaust is loud enough. But i'm wanting a DD thats quiet on the highway since I commute 70 miles a day now. I'd still have the exhaust modified on any car id get...but when I say "quiet" i'm mostly refering to not having 33 inch MT's howling as i'm driving down the interstate...
Anyway, back on topic. OP, you should plastidip that push bar since everything else is blacked out.
