  1. Aside from the cost which is $7k-$15k more for the STI, it is an older platform engine wise and not as efficient as the FA-20 motor the 2015+ WRX has. I didn't want to deal with ring-land, head gasket issues from a platform that hasn't changed in 20+yrs and I said before the efficiency. The FA motor you can get power out of it with a simple tune or going to E85. STI you're more restricted.
  2. I value the car I drive and the bank still owns for another 3 years which is a 2019 Subaru WRX. It's a Japanese muscle car 4cyl turbo, manual transmission(6 speed). I love it because its an all around car that has AWD, and its a sedan thats spacious. For a turbo vehicle it gets 25 mpg for someone that travels roughly 30miles round trip to/from work. Doesn't cost much to fuel about $35 on premium to fill the tank, I fill up every 12 to 15 days. It meets my needs because it's unique with the hood scoop, manual option, sedan body, turbo charged, AWD for under $30k. I could care less if people have negative opinions because everyone is entitled to their opinion. It was this car or a 2019 Totoya Camry XSE which costs close to $35k and had no manual option. I love when people film my car or check it out because it is an attention grabber and in public I have no expectation of privacy so those curious people know who I am when I drive by even though I don't know who they are lol
  3. In November and December of 2017 during the 30 day test, iirc didn't during testing the R179 experience door issues on one of the trips, and still passed the test without reset? If wrong what was the issue and still why was the issue not considered major?
  4. That announcement is exclusive for the 3rd Av 138th St bound 6 trains that short turn in the morning.
  5. Then there shouldn't be any b.s for shutting down Jerome Line, can't we agree? I'm sure you grew up along the and know what has been done and the weird services that are ran on that line. Albeit the (D)'s headways are longer now that can be compensated with some short turns 2nd Av is an option. Bx32 schedule can be adjusted and prepared for the upcoming G.O, my apologies was thinking of 205th , anyways BPB needs and should have been ADA long ago especially with the college, high schools nearby. Even if the express buses didn't exist there is still extra service that can be provided for the Concourse Line. It wasn't that long ago the was shut down north of Yankee Stadium, if it was like 20 to 30 years ago where population would be significant than 5 to 10 years I could understand but I still can't get over the petty excuses(Not you btw) for something that has been done before.
  6. Thats how it works. Train crews end service at 161. Check the cars for any remaining passengers, train heads north and relays at 167th preparing for service at Yankee Stadium. One could argue why not terminate the at 167th but there aren't any connections there aside from the Bx35 which runs via Highbridge
  7. The work can be done and it has happened before. The Concourse line can handle its own plus Jerome. When I was younger I remember the being shut down north of 161st St which was the last stop and the was an option, shuttle buses were provided, the Bx32 runs via Jerome from Kingsbridge to 176th...lets not forget BPB is an ADA station so that satisfies transfers to the Beeline service. Concourse has its help even if service isnt increased. The Bx1/2, and Express buses hold their share as well from Mosholu down to near 167th. It can be done but theres always an excuse for something now in days. Cant use Yankee games as an excuse as one can argue there are long stretches of away games.
  8. They must not be aware of the order modification or it could be true. Simply odd balls at Jamaica.
  9. Uniform purposes, completely forgot about the C full length thing
  10. Too far? Oh please I went from Bedford Park to Euclid daily think was late once when i attended TT in 2009/10 not bad of a commute because its one transfer and my buddy was coming from Gun Hill area on the 5 line. Just because they're reliable doesn't make them right all the time. As we know nothing is set in stone than death and taxes. And thats nothing against them but just because one may say something doesnt mean its 100% accurate or will happen. And to this I always thought the order of 5 csr sets should goto Jamaica to make QBL near or 100% NTT for potential CBTC meaning the 46s would be bumped to Pitkin and or CI in exchange for 160s/179 but we will see. The logic is keeping yards uniformed with one car type or two instead of having oddballs here and there for maintenance purposes.
  11. Good for the D! I always avoided the D during rush hours going home N/B because the crowding and headway the B was crowded as well but half the train cars clear out at 167th so it's pretty much an empty ride north of 167 to the terminal.
  12. Hands down the (4) To East 180th St. The (4) ran via the entire (5) route from 180th-Bowling Green. The (4) should have been the route suspended entirely.
  13. Jessica E is still the GOAT imo, very clear however aggressive when announcing certain stops such as Fulton St (LEX), and Pelham Pkway-WPR stop. The announcements get to the point without being too quick or dragged out whereas Cathering Cowdry seems a bit slower paced then a pause.
  14. The Excellence of the R-32 for B division, simply because they are true workhorses and have unique body grills. The R-142A for the A division, fast, propulsion is sweet, they buck, and they have LCD signs rather than LED.
  15. The rarest "catch" for myself out of plenty I would have to go with an R-46 via Brighton going Coney Island bound back in 2012 possibly. Aside from that I wouldn't count weekend G.O's that happen several times throughout the year as rare such as the to Euclid, to 2nd Av etc(which is my fav G.O btw) Going to school back in 2009 the train I was on wrong railed into Broadway Junction on the Manhattan bound track from the Queens bound exp track and terminated. R-160 entering C.I in 2010 train had no ads yet brand new set. R-32 rerouted to Bedford Park as well as an R-46 T/O took wrong lineup at 125th... R32 was rare but it ran nearly everyday in 09 and 2010. train re-routed to Queens Plaza, rerouted to 168th via local. Too many I can't recall without going through photos or videos. The rarest thing I've seen recently on YOUTUBE is the re-routed to Euclid Av and the via Culver Express that was a classy catch and photo wise an R-46 via Myrtle form the 70's.
