Re: 2015 Mustang v 2015 Subaru WRX

Just an update after about 10 months or so... Couldn't have been enjoying the Mustang anymore than I am currently. I get 29 mpg combined when I just care to drive "normal." And I tap into the 310 horses and 320 lb/ft when I feel for some spirited driving. The BEST of both worlds, basically...

MISC: What's on your Mind?


Just for a split sec, this thread was on my mind.
I came here to check. wow.

It's been just over 4 years..... damn!

I'm thinking I'll go for a leisure drive by the water after work (& that's on my mind as the work-day approaches an end).

farts? lol

For others...see (listen) @ 4:35 to the engine/turbo sound in this video... not too shabby...

Re: 2015 Mustang v 2015 Subaru WRX

nice whip man!! those look like V6 wheels to me :) 8) :mrgreen: Thank you, thank you. The wheels are upgraded, but it's the Turbo 4. I went with the T4 over the V6 due to more power 310 vs 300 hp & 320 lb/ft vs 280 lb/ft & the MPG is much better as well. All in all.... I get 31 mpg on the h...

I drove the turbo 4 in yellow. Did want. Have Focus ST instead (cheaper to buy and insure).


I got the Turbo 4 and I am certainly happy. Yeah, a bit pricey tho. Not as pricey as the V8 would be tho...

Re: 2015 Mustang v 2015 Subaru WRX

A tire designed as a compromise versus one specifically designed for cold and snow really isnt a competition. Snow tires are going to out perform. The tires being really narrow certainly aids in snow traction too, but rubber compound and tread design play the biggest roles in traction. To your poin...

Re: 2015 Mustang v 2015 Subaru WRX

The wife's Mazda2 with snow tires is definitely better than anything AWD with all seasons that I have driven. Same roads, same speeds, and the Mazda just flat out outperforms because of the tires. Wow..... that's interesting. I would've imagined that AWD with all-seasons is better than a FWD w/snow...

Re: 2015 Mustang v 2015 Subaru WRX

talking about AWD and FWD with snow tires I've driven FWD with snow tires through, what, two winters I believe? I've driven a 4x4 with siped and unsiped mud tires (mud tires often carry a snow tire designation on the sidewalls) and I've driven a RWF with summer performance tires in the snow - twice...

Re: 2015 Mustang v 2015 Subaru WRX

I'm a fan of hatchbacks and smaller vehicles in general over muscle cars because you really can't use the muscle part all that much as part of your daily driving. You can use good grip and AWD in daily driving (especially in "we close the city for snow" NYC <- couldn't resist :lol: ). Fai...

Re: 2015 Mustang v 2015 Subaru WRX

I'm going to be honest here. I simply refuse to own a 4 or 6 cylinder pony car like the mustang. I fully get that new V6s in those cars produce the power of the V8s just a gen or two ago, but I still cannot allow it for myself. Pony car with a V6 is so ill-fitting, in my mind, that I would never be...
