    I'm 18, and I'm fortunate enough to have my parents afford one for me. It's also my first stick car. Definitely a blast to drive around, though I don't think I'll get another stick for my DD.

    21 here with an 02 wrx. Its also my 6th car I've owned in the past 3.5 years. Went from a civic si, to audi a6 bi-turbo to this. Sold those cars in a few months, just got bored of them. Nothing is as fun as the wrx I own, so far. Plus get way more heads turned and compliments with it. I've payed for all of the cars all by my self, no mommy no daddy helping out. (not bragging, just saying not all kids have their parents pay for their cars, some do actually work for what they have) Worked since i was 14 part-time and summer breaks until I've saved up. Now with a full-time job and decent pay I can save up for a newer subaru, and dont see myself driving anything else for a while. (once a subaru guy, always a subaru guy....i guess)

    Bought my first wrx when I was 20 same situation as you pretty much. Payments aren't hard just save for a big down payment and get the monthly payment super low. Also shop around for insurance. I had quote that were ridiculously high until I went with liberty mutual and have full coverage for $130 a month.

    80 hours a week is insane. I've done it a few times myself, but dude that's not good for your health.

    I am 25, just bought a 2011 WRB hatchback WRX with only 21,XXX miles. Third WRX, and I bought my first brand new car when I was 19. It was a 2007 impreza 2.5i SE. I have also worked for everything that I have, never had anything handed to me!

    I bought my second WRX last week at age 69. I was 57 when I bought the first one. No regrets and so far no one has commented about it being a kid's car but then I currently own what many people think are either kid's cars or midlife crisis cars.

    When you're salary, working 80 hour weeks starts to suck after a while. You're basically making progressively less/hour, after 40 hours, and management begins to assume that you will continue working that hard, whenever needed.
    Regardless, I set a personal limit, a few years ago, on how much time I'm willing to spend working. More important fish to fry.

    I am recognized as the most productive and hardest working member of our team and I struggle to work even 20 hours a week. I slam in the morning, but pretty soon it's break after break, then lunch, coffee run, hang out with the smokers for a bit. I would say on any given day, I probably only do about 3 - 3 1/2 hours of actual work.

    Some people live to work. I work to live.
