So my Subaru has been nothing but slow, heavy, bad-gas-mileage getting, always breaking down a pain in my ass. It's now completely dead. It's gotta go. So I need something that will work for commuting a few city miles 5 days a week, and getting to the ski slopes 2 or 3 days a week.

I also have a maximum budget of like $3500 for car, tires, parts (I can do my own labor) and everything else to get it road worthy and reliable for the winter.

My current idea is faux rally Civic. I've always liked the hatchbacks, but I don't want to be just another guy in a stance mobile. I also need some ground clearance, for both snow and the giant holes in Seattle roads.

So here's the recipe: VTEC equipped hatch, with steelies or cheap alloys painted a bright color, fat-sidewall snow tires, mudflaps, couple extra fog lights, and a snowboard rack.

Performance mods as time goes on.
