It rides extremely nice. It's too damn quiet under the hood though. Needs a bigger hairdryer

I will not do any major powertrain upgrades for awhile. It doesn't make sense to trash the factory warranty. I will get an access port though because it will give me a few extra ponies with all factory equipment.

Right now I'm focused on getting a retrofit for HIDs and figuring something out with the stereo. The sound SUCKS but everyone says it's the radio not having enough power. Swapping for aftermarket makes it all better.

You want noise under the hood, add an intake. Instant rise in blowoff valve and general spooling sounds. Toss in a front mount intercooler to kill heat soak while you're in there Before anyone says it, "should have gotten an STI!" lol, jk. WRX is plenty of fun.

I hate to say it, seeing as how it involves leaving a Taco, but ... "Good!"

It's seemed to me that your time with the XR was filled with hassles, and I've suspected for a long time you weren't all that happy with it.

I still have my eyes on finding an older taco for moving stuff if I should need to. The X was a good truck but after 4 accidents, it was time to move on.
