Insert manly squee.

That VW bus dripped oil on the back window but no damage. Car is seriously filthy and wants a bath as soon as I can.

Of course I had to drive it around the development a bit. Oh yeah, this is gonna be fun.

First notes: Heel toe is easy, low end torque is fine, clutch/throttle takeoff will take a little learning, stock exhaust sounds nice, ignition chime is annoying, visibility is great. Also, the suspension is firm but much less harsh than my 98 Integra which is bone jarring. No complaints on the STI at low speeds.

Dropped it off for new car paint correction and detailing. I don't get it back until tomorrow afternoon.

No clear bra until next week, so I'll be taping it for the drive home.
