I've been dreaming of buying a WRX for the past year now and I am hoping to do so in the next few months (I've been trying to stay content with my 240SX in the meantime...). I read a few things today about the cost of maintaining a WRX, such as insurance and tires, just how bad is it compared to regular sedan (an accord or camry for instance)? I know the tires don't come cheap, are there any acceptable tires available that are more affordable? How much more do you guys pay for insurance than you would on a less capable car? Are there any other costs I might need to consider? Also, I've heard mixed reports on the gas mileage on the WRX, what kind of mileage can I expect to get in normal driving with a manual transmission? I know all these questions are relative, but any answer would be much appreciated!
