How's it going everyone, I'm new to the forum and just wanted to introduce myself. My names JR, Im 23 and honestly have never been into cars until recently, I'm more of a motorcycle guy. But about a month back my car took a dive and I decided I was finally going to buy myself a nice car. At first I saw the brz and thought it was sleek and nice looking but realistically found it just wasn't enough for me. Then I started looking into the wrx and slowly began to like it more and more. Now I research it daily, now I have not purchased it yet (have 5k saved need 8 -_-) but I just wanted to get everyone opinions and likes/dislikes about the car. I'm either going to get a brand new 2013 wrx or maybe a used sti depending (finally down to 5pts on my love aw from 8) so as you could imagine insurance costs are important to me. Well, thanks for reading I look forward to meeting new people in the area and hopefully get my wrx soon!

PS sorry if this thread is in the wrong spot, I didn't see a general discussion section.

Welcome JR,

This has been beaten to death... but my one question to you is this:

What are your goals for the car? Leaving it stock, adding more power, auto-x... , etc...

Insurance on the STi will eat you alive if you have point and/or accidents, ask me how I know.

Mainly aesthetics as far as my goals, I don't see myself doing any real engine work since I commute to college and I'd like to get somewhat decent gas mileage & I don't really see the need honestly. Don't get me wrong I like to go fast but for that I'll just buy another motorcycle next summer.

Then the WRX is probably your best bet.

MPG's and insurance reasons alone will save you $ on top of the cost off the bat. Add in being a new car with warranty.

Yeah I'm leaning towards the wrx too, I'm not trying to have my insurance cost more than my car payment lol
