After drooling over the WRX's :drool: for a while now. I finely had an excuse to look for a new car. My wife's 2001 Saturn SE got some electrical problems. Out of warranty and the dealer was just chasing the problem.
She wonted something 4X4 or all wheel drive. I asked her what she wonted.
She replied, I wont something 4 wheel drive but, I don't like SUV's and we already have a pickup.

I suggested we go to the Subaru dealer and she said, I kinda like the Baja's.
I asked her what she thought of the Impreza's (with other motives in mind)
She didn't know but would look. (Wahooooo I thought to my self)

01/22/05
First thing we saw when pulling into the lot was a used white on gold WRX STi.
She said, I like that allot, see how much it is (WaHoooo again)

Long story short the used WRX was a rode hard and put up wet repo. :leaving:
We got a 05 blue on silver WRX STi.

On the ride home (I only got to drive on the test drive :sob: ) She said, Damn this thing is fast! Can you make it faster?
01/23/04
It snowed all night and the WRX was left alone in the garage. :sob:
01/24/05
I have managed to log 118 miles on her (the WRX) today while the wife was at work.
I had to go to her work and steal it and take it back before she got off. (it is her car)
I went in and the first thing out of her mouth was, What are you smiling about.
I don't think I need to explain that here. :drool:
I'll post some pic's after I clean the snow and salt.

I've been a big Subaru fan my whole life thanks to the WRC. I've allways wanted a 2.5rs but they are getting hard to find in good condition. Maybe in the next year or 2 i will break down and buy a new wrx. I would rather have an older one because i want to get into rallying, and don't want to trash a new one.

Congrats on the new wheels :dthumb:

I like WRX, wouldn't mind one myself!
:withstupi

But I went with the AWD SUV for the wifey. Either way, had it out this last w/e and it handled great in the snow we got! Just takes some getting use to, when the AWD kicks in and starts compensation. But I got use to it and it then rocked!!!

Surprisingly enough you "think" the AWD kicked in but it was probably already engaged long before that. A week ago I was out for some winter testing on AWD vehicles. When people think they feel it kick it, 99% of the time it was already engaged. What you are feeling is at a given point the "major" correction when slippage begins. It surprised me because I thought I could easily tell when my wifes AWD kicks in. These test vehicles have an indicator which shows and I was surprised since 99% of time you never notice or know when it activates. The new systems are pretty sweet.

Congratulations.. I wish I'd held off a year and got the STi too, but I absolutely love my WRX. One of the best cars I've owned. I pray for snow. :here: :here: :here: :cheers:

I guess that wouldn't surprise me. I know one thing...for a smaller SUV it will go thru a 2 and half foot drift with minimal effort! :dthumb:
