Hi,

my name is Joerg, age 42, german, and I´m driving an Impreza WRX STI MY06.

Just want to say hello, and surf a little on your site. I´m a moderator in a german forum called subi-evo-treff, it´s a small forum with about 1000 members, most of them owners of Subarus and Mitsubishi Evos.

If you have questions, feel free to ask, and because I´m a natural born kraut, my english isn´t the best.

I know some of your members, or their cars, like Sir Williams´ Wasabi threads at IWSTI.

Hi Silke,

Dortmund ist ja nur einen Steinwurf weit weg von Essen (ca 40 km) wo ich derzeit lebe. Habe schon einiges von Dir gelesen, und ja, das Forum gefällt mir sehr gut.

And Bobby, thanks, WRB is the fastest color, but it needs golden rims:banana:

seems like many of the Forry guys have visited germany, much more than the STI-guys :biggrin: and every city you mentioned is spelled correct :Banane35:

Thanks a lot.

It´s amazing, someone should write a dissertation about "american Forester owners and Germany":icon_biggrin:

Well, I think Frankfurt hasn´t changed his appearance...there are nicer cities:icon_wink:, it´s still one of our criminal capitols, with very rich and very poor quarters

when I was a kid, my parents and I were on vacation in the Eifel, Bitburg.

I remember, sitting on the top of a hill, in the middle of nowhere, when the US Fighter pilots made their training flights at low heights, with their F-4 Phantoms and their F-15 Eagles. They flew so low, that I thought I could reach them with my hand (well, I was a kid).

That was in the 1980s, when I saw american cars and american soldiers for the first time.

Haha I was mostly joking about warm beer, I will drink room temperature if I'm too impatient to wait for it to chill lol, a very dark beer is definitely preferable. To be honest I'm not sure where, it is something I have been meaning to look into in general. I want to learn as much as possible so I'm not some "silly" American visiting and walking around like an ignorant fool lol. Now time to start asking my grand parents about where their parents were from exactly...
quick conversion: 60° F are something between 15 and 16° C, that´s ok:icon_wink:

I've been to Bitburg! Just passing through on my way to more mountain bike trails probably. :shrug: My first housing was in Rodelheim, just outside Frankfurt.....no base housing, just contracted apartments for the soldiers working there. I was not happy when I had to move into town and onto base housing. We moved away from local neighbors who we had become friends with. Aside from the real history and historical sights of your country, I miss the people the most.:Banane35:

Having a front row seat to the jets passing by is nice, isn't it?
Rödelheim, the only thing I know about it is the Rödelheim Hartreim Projekt:icon_wink:

you can order them just like you see in this pic, it´s the recaro sportster CS with side airbag (I didn´t want to loose the safety of a side airbag), and because I´m a little sissy, the seat is heated:woohoo:

here´s a link

.: RECARO :.

but what I know, recaro don´t sell them with airbag in the US, only without
