I enjoy driving my 09 Spec B, wish I would have bought one sooner. I got mine used with 23,000 miles on from a member here.
My 05 wagon is a blast to drive also. But the Spec is much more refind. Its a great car for a long drive.
The 6mt tranny is so much smoother, the gearing in the 6mt helps low end accelleration so it feels quicker then it is.
219,000miles 5/2012 ej257 short block, 8/2011 installed VF52 turbo, @20.8psi, 280whp, 300ftlbs. CHECK your oil, these cars use it.
