About a year ago, I found out that I was going to be a dad. That made me realize that every decision I make from then on must absolutely be sensible and responsible. At the time, I was driving a cheap, small hatchback that was just as safe as a crumpled soda can. So, it made perfect sense to upgrade my car to a safe, practical, fuel efficient, four cylinder, family-friendly sedan with legendary Japanese reliability.
So, I got a Subaru WRX. It ticked all of the boxes. It just happened to have a turbo.
And a rally inspired heritage.
Never mind that it also has 268HP under that vented bonnet. Small details.
A sensible and very responsible decision for the safety and well-being of my growing family. I was quite proud of myself.
My wife, however, thought I was full of sh%$&.
