    I am 34 years old. I was driving a 1997 Miata and got a little worried when old guys started waving at me from their Miatas. So I started saving (I was lucky, I had just gotten an $8.00/hour raise) and within 6 months I had enough for a down payment on a new 2005 WRX, and all the mods I wanted to do as well. I do have a mortgage as well.

    my first wrx 03 wrx i bought for $13k w/ 50k miles in 2005; I was 21 years old working 12hrs everyday, 7 days a week. In 2007, I bought a 05 STi for $24,000, I was 23. I am currently in the Army and deployed right now. I was looking to buy a M3, Supar TT, Lotus EXige S, Lotus Esprit when I got back but due to having a wife who wants nothing do with cars that don't have factory warranties. I opted to buy a 2011 WRX or STi, depends when I get back and the price. I got a insurance quote for a 2011 STi, I am 26 years old and with full coverage its $114/month with all the goodies aside: free towing, free roadside assitance, more free stuff thats nice. I am with USAA; its a bank and insurance company.(military only)

    Im 19 but i was 18 when i bought my 07 impreza. I payed a third of the car (about 5k) up front with my own money. My parents are paying off the rest. I also pay the difference in my insurance (about 1k), and also my gas, maintenance, and other bills. I have a job and go to college full time.

    One of the best investments we've made at my house. Three large active dogs that run all day. Makes life so much easier.

    Also one of the best investments. Notice it everyday. Mine has been put on hold until I get a few essential mods out of the way, but is not far behind.

    Gotta keep the dog happy. She was a puppy last summer, but I need her to be outside as much as possible this summer. Besides, building a fence would be fun and practical.

    As for stereo, I'm pretty picky. It has to work with my iPhone. I don't want a bunch of menus to jump around just to play music. Double din (hate the pocket) and touchscreen are a must, but don't really need navigation.

    I want to play with alpines. They always have had the best sound (along with old eclipse ones) and by far the nicest interfaces. I am eyeibg up the new pioneer GPS one - 130z i think. Would be nice to not have to buy modules for every single feature.

    Posted from my phone ... Excuse the grammar.

    No worries, I post from my phone all the time.

    I loved the alpine when I was younger, but I haven't seen the double din displays as of yet on them. I am leaning toward the Pioneer AVH-4300DVD, but truth be told, I just don't know enough about it yet.

    I've been a happy Alpine customer since the 1980's; my experience has been great sound and consistent quality. I can buy the HU and know that I'll give no thought to replacing it for many years. My DD Alpine touchscreen HU in the wagon is now somewhat out-of-date, (purchased on eBay in 2007 as a "last year's model"), but works and looks like new. Hook up the iPod and I'm all set.
