    Very true :)

    a few years ago when skiing in Switserland our instructor confided he drove one. When asked if he had any trouble with it, he answered he had none, as it was practically new.
    He then proceeded to tell us he had had a Russian family as a client in the year before. On the way up the mountain toward that lesson he crashed his car and missed the lesson with that family. The father was very pissed off with him at first, but after finding out he crashed his car told him he could have his when they went back to Russia. He actually showed us the car, an amg, to prove it really happened.

    Russians...

    As a biker, these type of drivers piss me off to no end. He can't even stay on his side of the road...

    Have sen a few Subie FR-Zs lately. Nice looking car. Sadly, I first noticed each one because of the recklessness with which it was driven.

    Meanwhile, in a different price bracket...

    Picked up this 2014 Forester in March. The extra ground clearance and AWD will be welcome in navigating the icy, rutted side roads of my city in winter. Plus more room all around for hauling people and gear for trips to the Rockies :D
