    Buy a $3000 4wd beater truck and avoid another car/large insurance payment. Take the money you have and will save and either invest it or figure out a way to use it to make more money. Play your cards right and in the future you will have turned this opportunity into a high end sports car.

    /advice from newest old dude around here.

    Thanks guys.

    To be honest, while I could afford a used STI around $30k...I've decided I don't want to put out ALL of that money right now. I'm gonna search around for a lightly used 2011+ WRX (already found a couple for killer prices).

    I have my grandmother's car for the next week while she's away, but after that nobody else has a car I could borrow for the foreseeable future. So waiting on a new 2014 for a few months honestly isn't in the cards.

    I will tell you this though: In searching for a WRX that will be at least $5k less than any used STI I see, I'm already budgeting for mods

    The GF knows how much I love STIs...she said in 2 years, I could give her the WRX, and get a new STI when I'm ready

    That's good news. Put a ring on that one.

    That's awesome if you can find a decently priced WRX. When I went shopping last week, my dealer had 1 2013 (that I bought) and 1 2011 WRX sedan and a 2008 STi hatch. They wanted 32k for the STi and 29k for the 2011 (9k miles), so needless to say it was an easy choice for me. There's just not many where I live :/

    Going to look at a red 2012 Sedan after work. 27k miles. One owner. 100% stock. He traded it in on a Chevy of some sort cause he didn't want to pay for it anymore.

    Yes, he bought the car. I tried to get him to flash my S1 map before he left the parking lot without success...
