I'll vouch for the sighting of dumbass in M3's, Utah is full of them
does WRX encompaass STi and base Sedan Models? Because they might count STi as a trim. Then that would make more sense, because the determining factor for me to get a sedan over the STi was the insurance (though hindsight tells me the STi would've been worth the dough)
Ok, I'll try to make this short.
A kid I work with had an SRT4. He wrecked it and it was determined both of them were at fault. He got it fixed, and got it back and he got hit and it was totaled within a week. He took his insurance check and got an Evo8. Everything was goin fine until it was time to re-up on his policy for the Evo when they told him he would go from paying 190$ a month to 520$ a month.
Reason being was they didn't factor in the first wreck he had which was considered both of their fault, and they just now hit him with the new price tag. Life's a *****. I pay 225$ a month for my 06 STi and I have nothing on my record. It's worth it, but I wouldn't pay 520 a month for a base model Evo (power nothing, interior sucks, no radio) PLUS 500$ a month for the car payment.
On all my quotes i've found the STI to be higher then the EVO by about 200-600 dollars a year.
I have a 02 wrx with one ticket and 2 wrecks on my insurance and i only pay 205 a month for full coverage... i am a 20 yr old that is in college and i know 205 is alot but after reading this thread i am starting to reconsider... my insurance company told me that if i can make it to 24 w/o any wrecks it will go down to 145 a month... just thought i would add my 2 cents
Wow, I'm 22 and I only pay $140 a month to put full coverage on both my STi and my wife's Dakota. Multi car/married discount FTW.
2005 Smog Silver STi
Illegally Hard Parked.
Im about to turn 21 i live in California i have a 03 WRX and pay $150 a month for full coverage. thats is less than my older car a 91 dodge stealth i used to pay $215 when i was 18.
185 for full coverage 1000/500 deductible. in california. 3 now 4 speeding tickets. (I live up the road from california hwy patrol's regional office)
I do not buy for a second that wrx driver = stupid = high insurance rates. The number of numb-nuts I've seen tooling around in modified (if modified means a fart-can and a big sticker) Honda's would mean that using that equation, insurance on a Honda Civic should run around 1k per week.
p.s. - STOP wrxing wrx's!!
