    New Guy alert!

    My trip to a WRX was a long one. I was a Honda guy. I had an 89 CRX Si,a 90 Civic Si, a 95 Integra SE and an 01 Integra GSR. On a whim I traded my GSR for an 03 Mazda 6.It's really a nice car,but I just didnt click with it. Working for a dealership that sells Subarus(Grayson), I decided to try my hand at a WRX. The problem is that the wifey loves the 6 and did not want me to trade it,so I did what any other red blooded american male would do, I talked her into trading her 04 Beetle Conv in. She got the 6 and I got my WRX. It's an 04 silver 5pd. All I can say is..........WOW!!!!!!!!! This car is amazing. Bone stock it handles better than my civic si and my GSR, which it spent a butt load on the suspension. And the power is amazing.

    I'll be around alot,
    Shane

    Thanks for the warm welcome. It was rough to get rid of my hatch, but I don't need two canyon carver cars.
