I'm 33, bought a 2013 PBP wrx premium because I had to switch to a four door with a baby on the way. Always wanted a wrx, wife gave the okay.
Purchased my 2011 DGM WRX @ 21 w/o help from parents, but I was living at home. I also had a new Harley 48 1200 sportster, sold my bike and now living on my own.
If I could do it again I would buy an older model to save some $$, but I love my car!

hmmm, 40 here... a wife, 3 kids - my oldest (7 yr. old son) thinks I drive the fastest, baddest car on the road. Well... when you can beat almost anything on the street today, you kinda are I guess... lol.

23 and just got my WRX a few months ago. Great upgrade from a mazda3. I love it!
23 with 2011 WRX, Came from a 2010 gti. I work at a dealership so I have access to some great cars at even better prices
First Post lol I am 23 and I just bought my 2013 wrx. Traded my 2009 Miata for it and never looked back!
Whew! I thought I was going to be the oldest one on the forum. 57 and just bought my first Subaru, a base WRX, after 33+ years of driving VWs. The last one, a 4-door Golf turbo that I modded with GTI suspension, sway bars, and a 3" cat-back exhaust, was a great ride - when I bought it in 2001. When I test drove a 2013 GTi before buying the WRX, I couldn't believe it. It was the same car! +20 HP, +leather upholstery, +$12k sticker, but the performance and handling hadn't changed in 12 years. If it weren't for the new-car smell I would have thought it was my old ride.Hi All Am I the oldies ??? 64 this year New 2013 Black 5 door WRX and I love it .
61 and 64 look great to me. I kept the last car for 12 years and would have kept it another 4 if some dingbat on a cell phone hadn't blown thru a stop sign and T-boned me. I'll count myself lucky if I last as long as the WRX!
So I'm a slow learner, but I got it. I'm enjoying the heck out of the car and can't wait until I get over 1,000 miles on it so I can open it up a little bit.

I started a thread like this on a VW forum in 2002 - the mods shut it down "off topic." So I spent a few hours reading the thread.
