    Thats awesome! I've never seen someone your age driving a WRX. Nice!

    Thanks. Let me assure you I don't drive like an old fart. I had the car up to 100 mph four times on the way home from picking it up in Scottsdale. Funny how I could stay within the recommended 4k RPM break in limit and still cruise at 100 mph. I did a few track days in the 2002 WRX and plan to do some in this one. My Miata has 7k track miles on it and the Caterham has about 2k track miles on it. My doc told me to stop with the track driving after tearing the rotator cuff in my right shoulder for the second time. I have cut way back but feel a need to get the new WRX on the track to see what its limits are so I will know what it can and can't do on the canyon roads.

    Love it. I just bought mine a couple of months shy of 54. Also have a 260z stroker. My dad was a car hound and drove a stick through his late 60's ..unfortunately carpal tunnel has derailed that, he's 79 now. I plan on pressing that pedal for a while....lol.

    Been wanting a WRX for a while now, but my driving record (speeding tickets) made my insurance sky rocket when I was younger. Now that I'm married and own a home at the ripe old age of 26, I decided now was the time to get one.

    It's so nice to see others like me who enjoy a car for what it is, regardless of age. 52 here. Highlander is for bad weather, wife uses RAV4, the others are for me!

    I'm 42, seems to be quite a range here on this thread . Awesome that they appeal to such a wide range in age- if you think on that.

    I'm 20, turning 21 in January, and I just recently picked up an '04 wrx. I'd say I'm pretty mature for my age considering I have a full time job, a wife of 1 year, and an 8 month old son(and no we didn't get married because she was pregnant. That's the normal stereotype.) I pay for everything I have. She drives a 2013 honda civic. Definitely not a stuck up guy who gets things handed to him!

    -I know a lot about cars, man. I can look at any car's headlights and tell you exactly which way it's coming.
    -Nobody remembers the guy who finished second but the guy who finished second.
    -Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary… that’s what gets you.

    I'm 20. Got my first WRX a month ago..and a week in I blew a bearing (Not surprised, 115,000 on the odo, and I was ready for 5th at 130...but **** happens, learned a lesson.) While it ran, it was an amazingly fun car. Cant wait until I get it fixed. Gonna be a little easier, but its winter....and its a WRX.

    Welcome to the school of hard knocks. Hopefully all will go well after the repair.
