This is FUNNY, but it is also a statement of how far removed newer car drivers are from the driving experience! Granted, I would take a freakin Impreza WRX ANY FREAKIN' DAY (I have drooled over them since original appearance in the WRC!) but the Impreza driver said the BMW was "Like driving a bus!" What a sad state of affairs!

i think it's lame how they didnt just use a 325iS, which has an LSD and ABS..lame. and an OBC that shows a bunch of checking lights, they really messed up hard there.

It's good to show that people who own imprezas can't drive but seriously there are a lot of techniques that have been lost because of technology. I grew up around a bunch of old Indy guys I actually remember one time when Mario Andretti was making fun of this kid in front of us saying if weren't for all the technology in the car he'd probably crash it in the first ten minutes of drving the thing. Ricers be thankfull for OBC otherwise you'd all be dead:lol:

If you know how to properly preform threshold braking having ABS will actually increase your stopping distance. This is why a lot of race cars don't have ABS, its not because they are trying to save weight its be cause the ABS won't slow the car down as well as threshold braking.

I have an E30 with nothing but ABS, and LSD (ABS light is on, and doesn't work, close call there, and I'm pretty sure I have the LSD, but it's not hooked up to a puter like the new cars)
I like how "raw" it is. Down with electronic nannies!!
