I am no longer a Ranger owner...

I sold my truck to carmax tonight. I've been trying to sell it for about 6 months in the paper and on craigslist. So I went around to dealers and Carmax gave me the best offer out of all the different places I went to.

I'll prolly stick around and I'll definetely post up mods when they happen to my new car. I have a lot of plans for it already.

I bought this from my Mom. Gotta a good deal. It has the same engine as the STi, just a smaller turbo and intercooler. It is lighter though!

I didn't get it for the performance though. It's a practical car that will get me to the ski slopes!

haha. We're the sameish size as you guys. We can do it, just not very comfortably.

But the main reasons I sold my truck were because it was starting to cost me money since it was in the shop about every other month. It got terrible gas mileage. I wanted a something different. I got a good deal on this car. It's cheaper to mod. And it's much more practical for my life style.

Haha I just watched it about an hour ago!! I recorded it on my DVR. It was pretty good!

I will say this about Forester guys though. I've been on the Forester forum ever since my Mom wanted me to disable the DRLs on her car. The Forester forum is comparable to this. All the people are nice just like this forum. Like we say on here, Ranger owners aren't ego maniacs like a lot of F150-350 guys on other forums. Forester owners are the same way compared to wrx guys and stuff. It's cool.
