Nothing sad about that. I was looking at those.
To the bold: Trust me, I have. My monthly golf has cost me almost double my car payment. Scary thought...lol
You should get some "curb feelers" so you don't mess up your mack daddy hub caps!
I remember being pretty exited when Saab and Subaru were collaborating on a car. I was less excited when they basically just came out with another impreza with a Saab logo and inflated price tag.
The size and shape are pretty significantly different. Though the engine is the same for sure, most of the other drivetrain components are not interchangeable. Saying that they are the same car rebranded is a big stretch.
You may be right about that model, I apologize about the wrong picture rofl. I can say those two are at least a bit more similar. The reason say they aren't the same car is I was doing a lot of research about possible upgrades and whatnot for my car and found nothing that was interchangeable between the two for performance.
