I was on the second engine, 2nd set of pistons, 4 tires (20" rims are a bitch), and replacement serpentine belt... I was so glad to be out of that headache, but I still miss it. It was so **** much fun.
I didn't trade anything. I did stop driving my 2000 Subaru Legacy GTB Wagon, though. I still have it and will likely sell it. It's Japanese car for which there is no North American equivalent and I don't have time to play guessing games with parts. It was also a pig on gas. Best I ever saw was 23MPG. I will miss it, though. Awesome car to drive, comfortable, lots of power, lots of room, RHD confuses old people (Are you a mailman? Are you left-handed?).
Traded in a 2015 Audi S3. FUN car but cost of ownership and lead foot forced me to get out of it. I'm VERY happy with my 2018 Sport - must more comfortable ride and much more back seat/trunk space than the S3.
Moved from a 2011 Santa Fe (handed down to my son) which, other than being incredibly boring to drive, was an excellent commuter vehicle. I put 140,000 miles on it, and it's still going strong. Needless to say, the ES is a much more engaging driving experience
