    Probably a 'long' shot but my poor MS3 was hit on Christmas day and the shop thinks it will likely be totaled :( Either way my husband is not big on fixing it due to the damage and safety concerns with a baby in the back and soon to be another.

    SO looking at getting a 2015+ STI in blue. I'd love a Limited but price is where it is at for me.

    Needs to be under 60k miles, lower the better because we want as much factory warranty left as we can get. I put on about 20k miles on my cars a year. And the big spoiler and leather/alcantara seats would be a very high on my list of wants ;).

    Any leads, let me know. Looking to buy next week hopefully. Willing to travel. I'm currently looking at some in NY, so distance is not an issue.

    Don’t “settle”! I went to Newark New Jersey for my car. You’ll find what you’re looking for! Good luck!

    Not a fan of the giulia, had a few in at my body shop and they are nasty to work on. Got a 16 SHO, works a little better for the family.

    Haha thank you! I don't want to. But I do need a vehicle quick since borrowing one now ;) Luckily husband is a stay at home daddy, so flying someplace quick is not a prob. I see a nice one in NY BUT the guy is not messaging me back... punk ;)

    Funny! I'm guessing it is this one since I just looked at it.

    I may go look at it. Anything notable on it? Damage, issues? Lots of hard launches ;) I'll need an AP for sure but mainly I'll need a roof rack and a Thule pod hahaha.
    Miles are higher then I want, but no traveling is nice as well. To bad they don't offer the extra warranty like Walser does.

    I've actually never launched it, and there is a little nick on the roof that I touched up (rock from someone in front of me) Other than that it is a strong runner. I usually had the maintenance done at White bear subaru or JM. Also if you have kids, they'll love it, my daughter always loved it when I did a little 2nd gear pull getting on the freeway ;).

    A 1.5 year old and another on the way :) Going from a MS3 hatch to a sedan will be interesting ;) BUT Dads on NASIOC say 3 baby seat will fit in the back of this thing haha. Roof rack and Thule will prob be in the near future.

    Going to go look at it today. Miles might be too high for the husband, but we'll see what extended warranties we can maybe buy from the dealership.

    Car has been bought! GotGrips old car was bought with some added warranties from the dealership. Great deal, I was really impressed with Luthers pricing and the Sale/Finance guy we dealt with at the Alfa/Fiat location

    I can assure you that the Graco 4-1 seat fits forward and rear facing with enough leg room for a 6'4 person in the passenger seat, just barely, but its enough!

    Love it! We had the giant Recaro baby seat and it was a squeeze in the passenger front with that thing behind it. Was slightly worried about baby seat #2 and how it would all fit for my husband driving. He is about 6'. But our son will be super close to 2 by the time baby #2 comes, and could go forward facing if need be.

    Subaru's + car seats + being tall = suck.
