Compensating a heavy car with horsepower is like giving an alcoholic cocaine to sober him up...

Ever closed an aluminum hood? Gotta drop 'em from pretty high to lock because they're so much lighter than steel hoods. I do the same on my WRX.

You also DON'T want to ever push an aluminum hood to close it. Always drop it closed. The Aluminum is thin, if you push on it you risk denting it.

Love the shot of them in the back of the car. I'm impressed they were able to even get back there.

Actually, I enjoyed the review, maybe because they don't seem to take themselves too seriously.

I was seriously disappointed that they didn't contort themselves into actually fitting back there, putting the seats as far back as possible, sitting back, etc. I wanted to see how uncomfortable it actually would be. They half-assed the entire review.

Fun review! "yes, it has a backseat, and" "we don't freakin' fit!"

What is it with every reviewer chirping second gear? Jeez, take it easy!

Yeah, not so sure about the high hood drop - seems like overkill. I had a WRX, and would never drop it from the top to close it. Wouldn't push down on a single point, but you can drop it from a foot or so up and it'll lock down.
