Shall we ask Subaru to make an "old fart" badge for WRX drivers over 40? If yoga and photography get their own badges, why not the young at heart?
Am I the only person on this pole to have purchased my WRX at the age of 15? Wow! Neat fact! lol

Can I submit a early request for one of those badges?
Subaru Badge of Ownership
On the order page, there is a box where you can suggest future badges. I don't know how many requests it takes to get Subaru to act. Some of the "New!" ones are Food and Wine, Antiquing, Fishing, Golf, Marathon, Half Marathon, Swimming, Breast Cancer Awareness, and Rally/Cross.
If a bunch of us older types asked within a few days, it might get noticed.
But what symbol for older WRX drivers? I'm half afraid to ask the question, because I can think of a lot of bad answers, but not many good ones. For example, given the overwhelming majority of men versus women WRX drivers on the forum, perhaps we should ask for Prostate Cancer Awareness. Don't think too hard about what that icon would show. See what I mean?

You can't have everything - where would you put it?
I got my WRX at 17. But it also was a bugeye. I know of no way a high school student, or a full time college student could afford a new wrx or 1-2 years older model.
