Hey everybody, what's up? I'm in Korea with the army, and I come home in less than 2 months (I come back November 13) and I plan on buying a WRX, so I figured I'd find a forum about the car to learn more since I've been a Honda guy since I've started driving (2 CRX's, a hatch, and an Integra). My next duty station is Ft. Lewis (up in Washington) and I plan on buying my car in Houston (where I'm from) and driving it there, to Lewis. I know the all wheel drive's gotta be great for the weather I'll be experiencing up there, but it'll also be great for my lead foot, so I'm definitely hoping to be able to find a deal on one when I get back.
As much as I'd love to buy a brand new one from the dealership, the 25k (average) is just out of my range, I've been considering a new 05 Civic SI (not for the speed really, for the reliability and the knowledge I have of them), and a SRT-4 (cheap speed, we all know that, but it's a Neon =/) I was searching through Autotrader and found a local (Local to Houston, not Korea, lol) 05 WRX for sale with 3,800 miles on it for $22,000. From what I can tell that's a pretty good deal, and I'd try and get the price down to 20k flat. Regardless of whether I get that particular one, I do intend on joining the WRX team and look forward to learning/posting here with all y'all.
