It's the metrosexual's car

So today Andrew and I were driving to see a friend out in the suburban wasteland that is Mississauga, when we passed a Subaru dealership.

Having recently discussed the 300 HP WRX STI, we decided to drop in and take one for a spin. Unfortunately, they do not offer the car up for test drive, which led to the following exchange:

Andrew: "What happens if someone is very interested in buying one? How do they know they'll be satisfied with the car?"
Dealer: "It's like buying a Ferrari--we guarantee they'll be satisfied with the car."

Um, no.

It's like buying a 60 thousand dollar Subaru.

Fortunately, they do offer the more sissy, 227 HP model for test drives, which we did take for a drive.

Apparently, Andrew and I have no problems passing for a gay couple, as the dealer asked us if "we had good credit." He also advised us "not to shift until 7000 RPM" and gave us tips on how to race someone on the test drive.

The car does have balls, though.
