    Hell my STi has 20% the miles and has paint chips in the front.

    That's going a tad too far IMO. I've driven a lot of different cars and while the new WRX is certainly fun, it's nowhere close to Supercar in performance, nor is the STi...

    It's not hitting the bumper (looks closer than it is) and it sticks out enough for the exhaust coming out to not effect the bumper above

    Thanks for the welcome. I wouldn't say my RSX was a mistake (got it back in 03). But I am 11 years older and I have different needs and hobbies now. My plans are to do intake and tune when it becomes available (I don't worry about warranties very much due to Heuberger being very lenient on that front). Turbo back exhaust is much farther down the road. Also, getting my car delivered to an Auto Salon to get custom clear bra on front bumper, hood a-pillers and side skirts along with a new head unit. I make trips to Albuquerque 4-5 times a year so I need to keep it realitively low key and streetable.

    I think he meant super car, not supercar.

    So I was looking around other sites and it looks like Australia doesn't really have the base model at all. Their "premium" looks like our limited and their base looks like our premium. Wonder if the wrx costs more there (relation to income/currency) or if they are getting a good deal on their 'base' model that is really a premium.
    Also, Do they still not have the new wrx in Japan? Didn't see it on their site. If so, that seems odd that we got it first to me.

    (correction: their base looks like our premium except it still has the LED lights of our limited)

    I can get stupid good MPG if I drive the car like a Yaris. The thing is that a Yaris would have given me even better figures at that level of performance. Drive your cars properly and enjoy them folks!

    Found it interesting that the manual suggests the following is the best shift points for a balance of performance and efficiency:
    1st-2nd: 15mph
    2nd-3rd: 25mph
    3rd-4th: 40mph
    4th-5th: 45mph
    5th-6th: 50mph

    I prefer:
    1st-2nd: 61mph
    2nd-3rd: 75mph
    3rd-4th: 95mph

    It has more than 4 gears??
