    Picking it up tomorrow!

    Whats up people. I just purchased a new 07 Limited (non-sti). Total invoice is $27,200, Silver with Black Interior. I also got the early warning lo-jack. My payments are gonna be $550 a month and insurance is gonna cost me about $400 a month =\. But man I cannot wait to take this thing home. I've never owned a manual before either, so hopefully I don't hurt it to bad while I really learn it. My neighbor taught me on his civic and i was getting that down pretty good, but i must of stalled it 15 times trying to test drive it. I can do a slow rolling start now without really jerking it or stalling, so I'm sure in a week i'll be a pro.

    Well Monday really cannot come any quicker for me now, and ill post pictures after I get it home.

    Hopefully the thefts aren't as bad in the Bronx as they are in N.J.

    See you guys out there.

    Oh yea is there any reason the forum reads backwards? Say theres a 2 page thread, the first post from the Op will be on the bottom of the 2nd page. Is there some option i gotta check to make it normal? Or is that just how it goes around here?

    Congrats man, but jesus, is $950 a month in just car payment + insurance worth it? You figure in gas and other things. I hope you have a great job.

    That's a lot of money for that car. My wife and I just bought her an '08 Legacy GT for $27,250 and her payments are $440/month. Did you put any money down at all on the car or are you just getting shafted on the deal? Also, how old are you, since your insurance is $400/month? That's pretty high unless you're very young and/or have had a bunch of tickets/accidents.

    Anyway, enjoy the car once you get it.

    I bought my 07 a month ago... My original insurance was almost $180/month. I shopped around, and am now well below $100/month.

    Well my insurance is actually now only $308 a month since i got the lo-jack. NYC is just horrible with insurance, i'm 22 with a perfect record.

    I didn't put anything down so thats why the monthly payment is so high. But man is this car fun to drive. I'm gonna have a hard time keeping it under 4k for a while

    For a new car, you need to stay below 4k but sometime(SOMETIME) you gotta let em have it. It's the break-in period and after that. Go stage 2 right away.. You have the same car as I do. Same exact color and int. I think.

    Good luck shifting and try not to dump the clutch too much. enjoy it man.
