    I just want to say that I'm not jealous at all...if I was, I'd be hating all over Jason (PhreeZe), one of my best buddies on this forum, because he's 16 and has a WRX. I just don't like people lying about their intentions.

    Also, I've been PMing jester a bit...he's got a good head on his shoulders. He just needs to be upfront with what he wants to do with his car and not trying to pull some wool over our eyes.

    Er, are you sure that it was the dealership that wouldn't give you the car? It sounds more like an insurance company, or even your gramps.

    Anyway, I say go towards a Civic. You can put some exterior accesories on it, maybe put in a turbo, new exhaust, blah, blah, then sell it for 20k and buy yourself a bigger, better car. By then you'll probably have some experience with fast cars (if you can call Civics fast).

    i was @ the dealers today and i found that the Celica is not for me, i just didnt like the interior too much..and the RSX..it sorta kinda took me by susprise..nice interior, not great performance...i duno i sorta liked it, but i did not like the body style, thats one peeve i have on that car..and i got to Test drive the WRX>>OMG IM IN LOVE>>SO NICE...took a corner at 45 easily..but there are no more 02' in stock and they want somting like 26k for the 03's..so i probly wont end up getting a WRX. i know this is a bord for the WRX but does n e body know of a nice body kit for the RSX? everying i see for that car is too ricy..thank you

    IMO, if you don't like the basic styling, no body kit is going to be able to put that right. That's like marrying a woman you think is homely and hoping she'll be able to wear enough makeup to compensate for it.

    Let's recap here: The RSX, "sorta liked it". The WRX "OMG IM IN LOVE." If grandpa okays either car, sounds like a no-brainer to me. Go find another Subaru dealer with '02 WRX's and make your deal. Otherwise you'll be on here later like RSXSucks with "who wants to buy my car ?" in your signature.

    Good luck, whatever you decide.

    I have a really tight 2000 Celica GT-S for sale for only 18,000 hell I will take a little less for it only 38k on car and the motor was replaced by toyota @ 20k due to a manufacturer defect. (they said that they were not going to just fix the problem but replace the whole motor??? diden't make sense to me but what the hell free motor ok)
    This is my fiance's car it has 18in Racinghart Z5000's, Eibach Sportline road race springs, indiglo guages, clear corners.etc etc.

    THIS CAR IS EXTREMELY NICE all options, runs like brand new. FEMALE OWNED.

    With the extra cash you could have a really nasty Celica its ready for a body kit and engine mods, they have a new T4 turbo kit for only $2500 complete.... I wish I could buy it from her but we just had a son so its not really practical for us.

    easy huh?

    you guys make this sound so easy..yes i get a free car..but its sorta like hell to get it..i cannot get a MANUAL..and my price limit is about 25k finial price..WRX AT isnt exactly the easiest thing to come by..and its obvious why. im currently trying to get a GT-s Auto. or a WRX..but for somereason the RSX keeps comming up which i dont like, do the 4eat WRX's have sport shift?

    The Celica is not for you, you sorta liked the RSX. No wait, that was yesterday. Today it's "im currently trying to get a GT-s Auto....for somereason the RSX keeps comming up which I dont like." Kid, do us a favor and post again when you've made up your mind and have the car. Lots of good advice has already been given.

    Okay, one last bit. Avoid the GT-S automatic. It's hard enough to keep it in the power band with 6 gears you control yourself. You do get those kind of hokey shift buttons on the wheel with th GT-S automatic, but the word is they're not that good - in the sense of being intuitive and easy to use. Want a nice automatic Toyota ? Get an MR2 with the paddle shifting. This a legitimate clutchless shifting system like Ferrari has, in an affordable car.

    Thats not a tough descision. go for the WRX if you get the rsx ( imo) it is just not fast enough. even if it is at it is still a WRX. hopefully i will be able to sell my rsx for the wrx this end of october.
    If you love something, let it go If it comes back its yours, If not, it never was
