It was stubby. The throws were so short it was almost off-putting...but in a good way?
Between pulling out of the lot, cruising on the hwy at 65 and taking back roads the whole way back the car averaged like 24 which was better than expected. I got on it hard, twice, and it sure likes to move.

Having never owned a vehicle with more than 300 hp, it kinda corrupted my whole thinking mechanism.

19" tires are fugging expensive. The insurance is more than I wanted to pay. The reliability is surprisingly highly lauded.
The trunk is tiny but really long with fold down seats. Apparently, you are able to fit 4 19" wheels and tires in it when the need arises.

Its not the most practical but I think it'll satisfy at least 360 days out of the year and be a good hoot at all other times.

It is kind of a douchey car though. That and insurance would be the only things that would wear on me about it. Those and tire prices. Then again... 330hp of rwd snow flinging goodness and a powerband that has no sleepy spots.

You're all over the place. Station wagons, VW, Audi, G37.

What about another RSX?
I know

Ideal would be a decent, reasonably reliable, awd hatch that gets good gas mileage and is easy on isurance


Now that the jeep is supposed to go today Ive been kinda scrambling and broadening the search to more in my area.

I still want to drop a last ditch effort offer on that A3 in portland but barring that, I got nothin.


I was looking for EP3's and RSX' actually but theyre all so trash around here. A clean RSX would surely satisfy. The hatch space is ridiculous .

Before I bought my RSX, I was on my way to buy a G37 coupe on TE37's. Car was red, TE37's where the matte black ones with the red lip/strip, and it was procharged. That would have been the first car I personally bought.

It was 3 hours away, called the dealership before I left and asked if it was still available and explained I was driving from 3 hours away - they said yes. Arrived there, and they sold it to someone on the phone from Chicago in that 3 hour drive. I had cash with me and he said he'll see what he can do. Ended up not being able to sell it to me but let me test drive it. I drove the shit out of it. I doubt it had any tread left by the time I was done. Thing was a rocket ship though, or at least that's what I thought at the time. 20 year old me.

What a bummer. Sweet consolation experience for your 6 hours of driving though.

Man, it must've made like 400hp. I bet it was a blast.

Ha, I did actually look at BRZ's in the area as well... big nope on that one

It was 450HP, if I remember correctly. Struggled with traction which kind of sucked.

G37 folks kinda balked at my offer. Theyre asking like 10600 and I came in at 10k even to offset the price of required winter tires. The car currently has Hankook Ventus evo 2's on it which are "MAX SUMMER" tires. Not to be driven in anything less than 40*.

"Winter tires are going to cost me close to a grand, you wouldnt sell a vehicle requiring 1k in required repairs."
"Sorry, thats the upfront price."

Its still a good price overall on the car but the principle of it... ha...

Also came to an agreement with the guy on the Portland Audi. A bit out of budget but if its in the same shape it appears to be in, that'd be worth it. He wants me to put down a 1k deposit on a purchase agreement to hold it until Friday. Not sure how I feel about putting a grand down on an unseen Audi. Not super comfy I spose. The car has sat for 3 months I wonder if chancing the next 4 days is worth it.

Either way, Id rather swallow a $400 plane ride home than ~12k total trying to get a shit car home before dealing with the new mysteries.

Yeah same, I bet if I would have gone to the used car sales manager he probably would have bent on it.

Oh well, I knew the whole time it probably wasn't the most mature decision I could make here. Woulda been a proper hoot though.

Im going to watch it sit all winter and laugh as it does.
The major downside on that was 5-owner and obvious mod history. As well as an accident I spose, though the repair was perfect enough to my eye.

This is the one Im saddling with

Yeah, literally the only one of these in the country with awd, the correct color combo and generally well kept in every other area. Legit service history as well.

That and I like the adventure. Only bummer is Im having back spasms and a hell of a cold mounting the last couple days lol.
This drive could become properly miserable.


All said and done, this is going to be a perfect daily for a long time as long as nothing outlandishly stupid happens with it.

Kevybro, the trip looked beautiful from some of those pics/videos I saw.

Any issues?

Yeah it was great. For the most part.

Missed two flights on the way out and wasted $400 getting there on time. Long story.

The first Air BnB in Spokane was a giant shithole in the ghetto. Worst "bed" I've ever slept on.
Parked near my window and left it wide open to hear everything outside.
Thankfully it was like 20* at night and not much activity.

The drive through Idaho and the majority of Montanna was ridiculously gorgeous. I'd live there. %100

The majority of Montana isnt supported by AT&T which got really interesting when I got out to cowboy country
and lost maps and the ability to call someone if something went wrong. There were so many damn mule deer as well.
Had a few close calls with them. Didnt see any other big game on the roads despite all the signs to beware of them.
I kinda did wanna see some big sheep bois. Just not too up-close. Night 2 of driving got real hairy. Just shot after like
10 hours with 3 to go. Was getting dark, deer everywhere, windy(windey? winding) as hell roads with constant elevation changes,
no service, mentally fried. No issue though.

These cars are known to use a little oil and by mile like 1680 I got a warning that it was at the "min level''. When I got
home, it was showing well within the safe mark but I gave it half a quart anyways. The only real issue with the car is
that it leaks window washing fluid and doesnt spray it from the rear wiper. That and it didnt have cruise control like one
might assume.

All in all, great trip. I wanna go back to Idaho next year and spend like a week in the mountains.
I'd legit move to Bozeman or something in Montana. You always hear those questions "Ocean or Mountain?" Mountain. So hard.


TLDR:
Car is good.
Spokane is a shit hole
Idaho/Montana Rockies are the promise land
East Montana is West Texas but colder
Mule deer are just rats with hooves.

The evo also doesn't have cruise control. It fucking SUCKS not having cruise control on long trips. I use cruise control almost every single day on trip to/from work so I know that feel. Crazy that it doesn't have cruise control... Does it not have it, or does it not work?

Yeah, living on the ocean is not that desirable for me.

Yeah, doesnt have it. Hard to believe. Stupid.

I guess you can retrofit in a unit. I might consider it. I guess its nearly impossible to put auto-start in these too. Dumb dumb dumb.

I can't believe they wouldn't put cruise control on a vehicle that was released in 2011... Jesus.

Looks like if you have a multi-function steering wheel (MFSW), all it requires i the cruise control lever switch and some coding. A pain in the ass, but manageable.

For real. And on a car that's supposed to be lauded as somewhat of a luxury vehicle.

I typically dont like cruise control but in this case, it was sorely missed. The majority of the drive
was twisty and crazy but at least 30% of it was just straight and barely bending roads.

Complimented a mans briefcase in the elevator just now and had to try and find it online.

Only ~$750 shipped. Is this normal for leather goods or is this a rich man with a nice bag?
